Chair: Larry Leemis (College of William and Mary)

Simulation 101 Software: Workshop and Beyond
Barry Lawson (University of Richmond) and Lawrence Leemis (The College of William & Mary)

This pre-conference workshop is designed for newcomers to Monte Carlo and Discrete-Event Simulation. The target audience for the workshop consists of managers, computer scientists, and engineers with C programming skills, but with little or no familiarity with probability, statistics, and simulation. Familiarity with C programming is required. The workshop places heavy emphasis on intuition associated with simulation. This is accomplished by running through the conceptual, algorithmic, and implementation portions of the development of several simple Monte Carlo and discrete-event simulation models.
