49th SIMS Conference on Simulation and Modelling, SIMS 2008, October 7-8 2008, Oslo, Norway
The 49th SIMS conference was held at Oslo University College in Oslo, in October 7-8, 2008. The program included 2 invited speakers and 23 regular papers. The invited talks were on modeling and simulation of biological populations (professor Nils Christian Stenseth at the Department of Biology at the University of Oslo), and interval computations in numerical algorithms (Warwick Tucker, Research leader of CAPA - Computer-Aided Proofs in Analysis - at the University of Bergen). The 23 papers discussed topics including modeling techniques, fluidized beds, biological models, visualization and modeling, as well as industrial applications.
