Australasian Simulation Congress (formerly SimTecT)
Date: August 2017 - Thursday 31 August 2017
Location: Sydney International Convention Centre , Australia

The 2017 Australasian Simulation Congress will once again bring together the SimHealth, SimTecT and Serious Games streams, along with opportunities for a number of joint sessions of mutual interest.

At its heart, every application of simulation is ultimately about people – whether it is enabling individuals or teams to achieve peak performance, or solving problems in infrastructure that will improve the lives of millions of people. As a simulation community, we need to ensure we understand the impact of what we do on the people that interact with, or are affected by, our simulations.
