MODSIM session on Homeland Security & Emergency Management Applications
International Congress on Modelling and Simulation is held every two years, and
was held at the MODSIM 2013 Adelaide Convention Centre (South Australia) on .
This specific session (D2) within MODSIM discussed
Homeland Security & Emergency Management applications of modelling and simulation. It resulted from a splitting of the successful Defence and Homeland Security session into Defence and non-Defence areas.
Anthony Dekker was the session chair.
We had 6 papers in this (fairly small) session within the larger MODSIM conference, with many other related papers within the
Applied and computational mathematics and Defence streams of the conference. Accepted papers for the session (after review) were:
: A. Green, I. Piper, and D. Keep Microsimulation Study of the Release of Pneumonic Plague and Smallpox on a Synthetic Civilian Population
: D. Keep, I. Piper, and A. Green An Investigation of the Effectiveness of Interdiction Regimes Against Terrorist Attacks in an Urban Transport Hub
: S. Karunasekera, A. Skvortsov, A. Gunatilaka, and D. Pitaliadda Statistics of chemical tracer concentration in a multi-compartment structure measured with a sensor network
: K.L. Stamber, T.J. Brown, D.J. Pless, and A. Berscheid Modeling and Simulation for Homeland Security
Algebraic models for path-based measures in time-ordered social networks [full paper elsewhere]: N. Kontoleon, L. Falzon, and P. Pattison
Using models to compare the effectiveness of alternative strategic security arrangements [abstract only]: R.A. Nunes-Vaz, S. Lord, D. Bilusich, and L. Chim
Some relevant papers at previous MODSIM conferences include the following:
