The European Conference on Modelling and Simulation (ECMS) is the international conference dedicated to help define the state of the art in the field. For several years, ECMS has proven to be an outstanding forum for researchers and practitioners from different fields involved in creating, defining and building innovative simulation systems, simulation and modelling tools and techniques, and novel applications for modelling and simulation.

The local organizers and ECMS are very happy to announce an exciting programme that includes guided tours of the world's most advanced offshore simulator and world-renowned invited keynote speakers, thanks to financial support from local companies such as Rolls-Royce Marine, Offshore Simulator Centre, and Farstad shipping.

Please visit for travel information about Ålesund and the nearby UNESCO world heritage site Geirangerfjord.

The town of Ålesund is beautifully situated on several islands on the coast of Sunnmøre, and is the gateway to some of the world's most famous fjords and natural attractions. The town has a strong and vibrant history, dating back to the Viking era, even though it was not granted municipal status until 1848. After being devastated in an enormous fire on January 23rd 1904, Ålesund was rebuilt in the Art Nouveau style that characterizes the town today with its many turrets, ornaments and colourful facades. The town mountain Aksla has got a spectacular panoramic view of the Sunnmøre Alps, the town centre, the ocean and the islands in the archipelago. Today Ålesund is a modern and rapidly growing town, and with its 45.000 inhabitants it is the natural commercial and industrial capital of the Sunnmøre region. The town has got a strong tradition in the maritime industry, and is considered the fisheries capital of Norway.

Aalesund University College (AAUC) is a university college with five faculties and more than 200 staff. We offer a wide range of study programmes in engineering, marine operations, biotechnology, business, and health.

More information can be found on the ECMS office website

We look forward to welcoming you in Aalesund!
