Simulation Journal Club
Local discussion forum for people interested in simulation, meeting bi-weekly. Papers discussed are be related to (1) simulation modelling in general, or (2) the research that the journal club members are involved in, or (3) relevant research methods, or (4) entertaining papers about Computer Science. An alternative to discussing papers could be to discuss video lectures posted on YouTube.
