Sixth St. Petersburg Workshop on Simulation
June 27-July 3, 2009
St. Petersburg State University
St. Petersburg, Russia

The Department of Stochastic Simulation of St. Petersburg State University is sponsoring its sixth simulation workshop, in cooperation with the INFORMS Simulation Society (USA). This international conference is devoted to mathematical techniques in stochastic simulation, experimental design, applied statistics and related topics. The workshop is open to both researchers and practitioners. The organizers welcome papers devoted to both the development of mathematical theory and related algorithms, as well as applications of sophisticated simulation techniques. The workshop is also open to those who would like to participate without presenting a paper.
The previous Workshops took place in 1994, 1996, 1998, 2001 and 2005. The selected advanced proceedings of the Workshops were published as special issues of the Journal of Statistical Planning and Inference (2000, Vol. 85, No. 1/2, 2005, Vol. 132, No. 1/2, 2007, Vol. 137, No 8, 12).
A proceedings volume will be available at the opening session. A volume of the selected extended proceedings will be published as a special issue of the Journal of Statistical Planning and Inference in 2010.
The sixth Workshop will take place in a hotel near the historical center of St. Petersburg. The end of June is the time of famous white nights and wonderful weather in St. Petersburg. Participants will be able to take advantage of the remarkable museums and theaters of the city. The working language is English.
