Conference Information

The 2002 Parallel and Distributed Simulation Conference is the 16th
incarnation of this high-quality presentation of parallel processing
techniques applied to simulation technology. Leading off the conference
will be a keynote speech by Dr. David Nicol of the Computer Science
department in Dartmouth College. Many papers in various different topics
of parallel simulation will be presented.

The conference registration fee includes: Sunday afternoon tutorial; coffee

breaks; Sunday evening reception; continental breakfast on Monday, Tuesday,

and Wednesday; Lunch on Monday and Tuesday; and a Banquet on Tuesday

Conference Excursion

The conference excursion, as currently planned, is a boat trip along the
