The Department of Science Communication and Higher Education Research is hosting the 9th Models and Simulations Conference (MS9) at the University of Klagenfurt, Austria. This continues a successful series of meetings focusing on the role of modeling, simulation, and computational approaches in the natural and social sciences, in medicine and engineering. Of interest are not only the development and use of models and simulations in research and technology but also the roles they play in other societal domains (e.g. politics, health, administration, finance and business).
The MS Conferences aim at lively discussions among participants representing different disciplinary, theoretical and empirical approaches. This includes philosophers, historians, and social scientists (respectively HPS and STS scholars) with an interest in models and simulations as well as practicing scholars who model or simulate in their own research.
Earlier meetings have taken place in Paris (2006), Tilburg (2007), Charlottesville, VA (2009), Toronto (2010), Helsinki (2012), Notre Dame, IN (2014), Barcelona (2016), and Columbia, SC (2018).
