Ana Ionesi Wins WSC Diversity Award
Ana Ionesi, PhD student from SDU Mechatronics, won the Diversity Award at the Winter Simulation Conference 2018 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Ana Ionesi, PhD student from SDU Mechatronics, won the Diversity Award at the Winter Simulation Conference 2018 in Gothenburg, Sweden, in December, for her work on using the modulating function method as the main estimation algorithm towards predicting the dynamic behaviour of temperature in buildings and ventilation systems.
To improve the diversity in the simulation community, the INFORMS Simulation Society (Institute for Operations Research and Management Sciences, USA) annually awards $500 sponsorships to assist eligible graduate students to attend the Winter Simulation Conference.
The 2018 diversity awardees were:
• Maria Julia Blas, INGAR Argentina
• Ana Ionesi, University of Southern Denmark
• Mengyi Zhang, Politecnico di Milano
The Winter Simulation Conference is part of the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society (SMC).
