Focus on simulation, modeling and optimization in engineering
The International Conference of Scandinavian Simulation Society will cover broad aspects of simulation, modeling and optimization in engineering, especially in energy applications, 26. – 28. September 2018.
The scientific program will include technical sessions with submitted and invited papers, and will be open for poster sessions and vendor demonstrations.
The conference themes are
- modeling and simulation for design, planning, optimization, control, monitoring and diagnostics
- modeling tools, numerical methods for simulation, simulation tools and technology
- visualization of modeling and simulation results
Many application areas
Application of this include many areas:
Automotive energy systems, Bio energy and biofuels, Biosystems and medical systems, Carbon capture and storage, Chemical process plants, Electric power systems, Energy storage, Energy and climate, Environmental impact, Fuel cells, Geothermal systems, Health and Welfare, Heat pumps, Hybrid and electrical vehicles, Hydro power, Industrial energy systems, Marine energy systems, Mechatronic energy systems, Oil and gas exploration and production, Photovoltaics, processing plants, Power stations, Refrigeration systems, Solar thermal systems, Thermal power plants, Wave and tidal power, Wind power.
The key note speaker Jens Pålsson from Modelon will focus on model based development as a way to cut cost and lead times, and to come up with optimized solutions, and Carlos Grande from SINTEF on Process Intensification through Adaptable Catalytic Reactors made by 3D Printing.
The conference ends with a study visit to VEAS water treatment plant.
VEAS treats wastewater for 600 000 people living in the Oslo area, in 2016 97 million m3. VEAS produces biogas, electricity, ammonium nitrate and soil. Researchers at USN have been working on modeling and control of the VEAS water treatment system, and will share their insights.
The ARIS research group hosts the conference at Oslo Metropolitan University, Pilestredet 46.
‘ARIS-research group is proud to invite our Nordic colleagues to Oslo Wednesday 26. - Thursday 27. September to share the latest research findings in modeling and simulation’, says associate professor at OsloMet, Tiina Komulainen.
The conference is arranged in close collaboration with our academic colleagues from USN at Porsgrunn and NTNU at Trondheim and Ålesund, and the branch organization NFEA.
During the conference, about 40 PhD students and their supervisors present their current research.
Inspiration and opportunities for careers
‘Participating PhD students will expand their professional network, and find inspiration and opportunities for the next stages of their researcher career, says Komulainen.
‘Presentations from a handful of bachelor and master students demonstrate how we successfully have engaged all our student groups in research activities.’
‘This is a unique opportunity for our research group to strengthen existing academic collaboration, and find new research partners in modeling and simulation.’
‘The peer-reviewed conference proceedings will give the authors publication points and, hopefully, stimulate new research proposals.’
Arranging the conference would not have been possible without the efforts of the authors, conference secretary, the conference chairs, and the national and international technical committees.
‘I would like to thank the program chair Professor Lars Erik Øi (USN/Porsgrunn), the co-chairs Associate Professor Lars O. Nord (NTNU/Trondheim) and Associate Professor Robin T. Bye (NTNU/ Ålesund) and the conference secretary Barbro Berg Bakken (NFEA) for taking a lot of time and efforts in arranging the conference together with me.’
‘I would like to thank the national and international technical committee members for dedicating their time and energy into to the detailed review of the 70 abstracts and 50 articles received.’
‘I would like to thank the program chair Professor Lars Erik Øi (USN/Porsgrunn), the co-chairs Associate Professor Lars O. Nord (NTNU/Trondheim) and Associate Professor Robin T. Bye (NTNU/ Ålesund), the conference secretary Barbro Berg Bakken (NFEA), and student-chairs Ms Laura Marcano (OsloMet) and Ms Samee Singh (USN) for taking a lot of time and efforts in arranging the conference together with me.’
‘I am delighted to meet all the participants next week’, says Komulainen.
