Research

Simulation Australia currently has a members only directory of international simulation training and analysis research supporting the advancement of simulation. There is a lot of research about simulation usage, in both training and analytical context. In line with Simulation Australia’s mission to advance knowledge about simulation, we conduct conferences and other events to facilitate knowledge sharing. As a result, we have 15 years’ worth of academic papers that could provide insight and information for new and experienced simulation practitioner’s worldwide. 

Annually SimTect and SimHealth both publish over 50 papers each and we will be creating an online directory of past conference papers to provide a comprehensive search feature. Each year a report will be created with key themes and trends emerging from papers.
