VENUE
Budapest is not only the capital of Hungary, but also its geographic,
scientific and cultural centre. As a result of its location on both banks
of the river Danube, Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities of Europe.
The city grew out of the union of both cities on either bank of the Danube,
the hillstrewn Buda on the right bank and the lowlying Pest on the left
bank. As a result of its chequered history from Roman times, through the
Middle Ages and Renaissance to the present day, Budapest blends a myriad
of building styles into one harmonious entity. One of its peculiarities
lies in the fact that there are some 180 hot springs feeding
10 thermal baths.

BEST PAPER AWARD: BEST ESM'96 PAPER

The Budapest 1996 European Simulation Multiconference will award the
best paper of the ESM 96. The International Program Committee will nominate
the best paper in each conference. The chosen papers will be judged
according to their quality, their presentation and the response to questions. IPC will then nominate the overall best paper of them. The authors of the best papers will be awarded at the conference closing session.

TUTORIALS

A number of Tutorials will be held during the conference they are:

New Aspects for Run Time QoS Measurement in Networks and Distributed Systems.
by Petre Dini, University of Montreal, CRIM, Montreal, Canada.

This tutorial analyzes how all existing features of networks and distributed
systems facilitate or make difficult the evaluation of the system
performance. New approaches are presented in an analytical and numerical
way to measure, calculate, and interpret complex correlations related to QoS
between events occurring in networks and distributed systems. Concrete
mechanisms, methodologies, and algorithms to measure QoS are presented.
Implementation issues within distributed systems and connections with
middle-ware platforms conclude the tutorial.

An Introduction to Cellular Automata for Modeling and Simulation
Martin Wildberger, EPRI, USA.

This tutorial will provide an elementary introduction to the programming of
cellular automata and their use as a tool for modelling and simulation.
Besides several simple examples, it will also describe briefly recent work
using Cas to model wave equations in conenction with electric power systems
and demonstrate a program for evolving one-dimensional cellular automata
(Cas) using continuous as well as discrete states. These continuous Cas
model the wave equation, the Permi-Pasta-Ulam nonlinear string, the damped
driven oscillator, etc.. This WINDOWS-based software, known as CAPOW, was
developed by Rudy Rucker and students at San Jose State University under a
grant from the Electric Power Research Institute.

Numerical Solution Methods for Markov Chains
Udo R.Krieger, Deutsche Telekom AG, Darmstadt, Germany.

We sketch the interactive solution of queueing models by the advanced
software techniques of the tool MACOM and present efficient algorithms to
compute the steady-state distributions and the corresponding transient
solutions of the resulting finite Markov chains. Moreover, solution methods
for infinite Markov chains with matrix-geometric steady-state solutions are
discussed. It is the objective to emphasize the algorithmic aspects of the
solution methods and to limit theoretical considerations to a minimum.

Fuzzy-Object Oriented System Modelling and Simulation
T.Van Le, University of Canberra, Canberra, Australia.

This tutorial presents the latesttechnique in simulation that combines the
three concepts of object-oriented system modelling, fuzzy holographic
memories, and nondeterministic programming, to make system simulation more
realistic and flexible, as it can handle vageuly distributed objects and
messages.

Computer Simulation Languages, Continuous and Discrete Examples.
Ralph C. Huntsinger, California State University, Chico, USA

This tutorial will cover an introduction to three Continuous Systems
Simulation Languages and two Discrete Simulation Systems languages.

The three Continuous languages are (1) CSSL-IV ( Continuous Systems
Simulation Language version four), (2) ESL ( the European Space Agency
Simulation Language), and TUTSIM ( a popular block diagram simulation
language described in the CRC Press textbook " Computer-Assisted Simulation
of Dynamic Systems with Block Diagram Languages").
All of these very high level languages are software tools to allow the
rapid modeling and simulation of transient dynamic systems. Application
examples include systems that can be described with non-linear,
non-homogeneous, simultaneous, high order, ordinary differential equations.

The two Discrete Simulation Systems languages are (1) GPSS/H ( the General
Purpose Simulation System from Wolverine Software Corporation in the USA),
and (2) PASION ( a very nice powerful language developed at the
Universidad Panamericana in Mexico City). These languages are software
tools that allow the easy modeling of waiting line systems and use
queuing theory and random number generation to model stochastic systems.
Both of these languages are of great assistance to Industrial Engineers
and persons involved in Operations Research and Logistics.

In addition the Discrete languages provide animation software packages to
display the ongoing simulation to management to help with their
understanding of the simulation process.
One package is the PASION ANIMATOR from Mexico.

PC (personal computer) versions of each of these six software packages
will be demonstrated at the tutorial so participants can get a "feel"
of the power and usefulness of this software.

The tutorial will demonstrate that "Computer Simulation is FUN !!!"


SCS Members Blue Sky Meeting

The SCS European Simulation Council Meeting and European Conference Board
Meeting will be held on Wednesday evening at 6.00 p.m.-8.00 p.m. and will
continue Thursday morning at 9.00 a.m. till 11.00 a.m.

FINAL PROGRAMME
Registrants will receive the Printed ESM96 Final Programme at the
Conference.

TRAVELLING INFORMATION AND CONFERENCE SITE

TRAVELLING INFORMATION

To enter Hungary:you must have a valid passport as evidence of your
citizenship and identity.Under international treaty or regulation,
certificates entitling the holder to cross the Hungarian border also
qualify as passport, e.g. the identity card in the case of German Nationals.
European Union residents just need their international passport.

To enter Hungary as nationals from Albania and Turkey you need a visa.
In the case of countries outside Europe, visas are not required by
nationals of Argentina, Canada, ex-Soviet-Union, Malaysia, Republic of Korea
and United States.

Foreign nationals may bring in a maximum of 10.000 HUF without a permit.
Banknotes of denominations greater than 1000 HUF may not be brought in
without permit even when travelling in group. Persons bringing in a sum in
cash exceeding 200 USD (or its equivalent in other currencies) which they
wish to take out again are advised to request a certificate of value brought
in, issued by the custom office.
Foreign nationals do not require a certificate for travellers cheques,
other cheques or bills of exchange, or credit cards, cheque cards or bank
cards.

Foreign currency brought in may be exchanged for forints only in official
exchange offices, travel offices, banks or hotels. The receipt given when
exchanging money must be kept until departure.

When leaving the country any foreign currency brought in may be taken out.
Hungarian currency up to a value of 10.000 HUF per person may be taken out.
Banknotes with denominations greater then 1000 HUF may not be taken out of
the country.

CONFERENCE SITE

Budapest University of Economics is located in the business district of
Budapest within walking distance of several hotels (Atrium Hyatt, Forum,
Gellert, Korona).

Its predecessor was the "Commercial Section" of The Technical University of
Budapest, which was set up in 1857. Out of this section, the Economic
section was established in 1912. This situation remained till 1948 when it
was seperated from the University and it became the independent University
of Economic Sciences. A number of years later it received its present name:
the Budapest University of Economic Sciences.
It has four main faculties: Business, Economics, Social Science and
International Studies.
For its participants it boasts several conference rooms, a wonderful
art-deco university buffet and a vaulted cafeteria.
The nearest subway station is Kalvin ter.
