The European Conference on Modelling and Simulation (ECMS) is the 
international conference dedicated to help define the state of the art 
in the field. For several years, ECMShas proven to be an outstanding 
forum for researchers and practitioners from different fields involved 
in creating, defining and building innovative simulation systems, 
simulation and modelling tools and techniques, and novel applications 
for modelling and simulation.

The local organizers and ECMSare very happy to announce an exciting 
programme that includes guided tours of the world's most advanced 
offshore simulator and world-renowned invited keynote speakers, thanks 
to financial support from local companies such as Rolls-Royce Marine, 
Offshore Simulator Centre, and Farstadshipping.

Please visit http://www.visitalesund-geiranger.comfor travel information 
about Ålesundand the nearby UNESCO world heritage site Geirangerfjord.

The town of Ålesundis beautifully situated on several islands on the 
coast of Sunnmøre, and is the gateway to some of the world's most famous 
fjords and natural attractions. The town has a strong and vibrant 
history, dating back to the Viking era, even though it was not granted 
municipal status until 1848. After being devastated in an enormous fire 
on January 23rd 1904, Ålesundwas rebuilt in the Art Nouveau style that 
characterizes the town today with its many turrets, ornaments and 
colourful facades. The town mountain Akslahas got a spectacular 
panoramic view of the SunnmøreAlps, the town centre, the ocean and the 
islands in the archipelago. Today Ålesundis a modern and rapidly growing 
town, and with its 45.000 inhabitants it is the natural commercial and 
industrial capital of the Sunnmøreregion. The town has got a strong 
tradition in the maritime industry, and is considered the fisheries 
capital of Norway.

AalesundUniversity College (AAUC) is a university college with five 
faculties and more than 200 staff. We offer a wide range of study 
programmes in engineering, marine operations, biotechnology, business, 
and health.

More information can be found on the ECMSoffice website 

We look forward to welcoming you in Aalesund!
