WSC 2067:  What Are The Chances?
At the November 1967 "Conference on the Applications of Simulation Using
GPSS" it seems unlikely that anyone was wondering if the conference would
still be occupying a big hotel in 2017. Conferences persist for many
reasons, but a technical conference like WSC has to remain relevant to
users, vendors, researchers and consumers (not just hotels) to survive. If
our kind of simulation vanished, then so (eventually) would WSC. What is
required for simulation to "remain relevant" for the next 50 years? Without
fear of having to answer for my crimes in 2067, I boldly speculate on what
SHOULD matter for the next 10-20 years, if not the next 50, with a focus on
our strength: dealing with uncertainty.
