EUROPEAN Conference on Modelling and Simulation

Best Paper awards







Each year an award will be given by the Best Paper Award Committee for a contribution which is outstanding in its scientific quality.

In addition to a certificate, the award includes a prize of free registration at a future ECMS conference. 

The award will be presented in the closing session of the conference
