  • This year, in Calgary, we organized the fourth edition of SCSC2006 Student Workshop; this initiative was very successful, as during past years, with a full session of paper presentations selected through a process including reviews by International Program Committee (IPC) members and supported by SCS and Liophant Simulation. All the accepted papers were included in SCSC2006 CD-Proceedings, but are keep separate from SCSC2006 hardcopy proceedings, even if the review selection was based on the same high level standards used for regular papers.
    The SCSC2006 Student Workshop enabled students to attend the workshop and get a SCSC2006 CD copy including the whole Conference Proceedings as well as the possibility to compete for the "Best SCSC2006 Student Paper Award" (including a cheque of 500 USD for the winner provided by Society for Modelling & Simulation International (SCS) with the very special registration fee (just 55USD).
    SCSC2006 Award for Best Student Papers is Introduced by Edward Williams (President of Best Paper Award Committee and SCSC2005 Program Chair Agostino Bruzzone, SCSC2006 General Chair, open the Student Workshop Best Paper Award Ceremony at Summersim2006 Luncheon
    The "Best SCSC2006 Student Paper" was selected through a multi layer process where the high quality of the submissions and presentation proposed quite a challenge in order to make a selection. The selection process included: Gabriel Wainer, Student Workshop Chair (and SCSC2007 General Chair) presented the Award the Best Student Paper of the SCSC2006 Workshop Best Student Paper Award is collected during the Ceremony by Nathan Wormsbecker, student from Alberta and it will be delivered to the authors that was unable to attend the SummerSim Luncheon; SCS will transfer Money Award directly to the winners Edward Williams, Program Chair of SCSC2005, operated as Ceremony Master during the SummerSim05 Exhibition Reception and awarded the Recognition Certificates and prizes provided by SCS International / DIPTEM to the best Student Papers. Marina Massei, Academic Liason and Representative of DIPTEM provided the sponsorization as 1'000USD Cheque Award to the Best Student Paper Author.
    Agostino G. Bruzzone, as MISS Director McLeod Institute of Simulation Science awarded DIPTEM for its support to young people to become part of simulation community as a key issue for promoting Modelling & Simulation.
    The Ceremony attendees enjoed the SCS Welcome Party as well as a Special Clarinetto Session by Ralph Hunsinger, Historian of SCS
