Machine Learning and Simulation (MLS)

Chair: Joon-Seok Kim, Co-Chair: Andreas Z├╝fle


Modeling and simulation (M&S) have advanced our understanding of complex systems, have improved our ability to predict future states, and have been leveraged to prescribe (near-)optimal interventions and policies in many different application areas. In the enterprise of exploring such complex systems, artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) have the potential to improve our ability to optimize simulation parameters, to train agent/actor behavior throughout simulations, and to evolve the simulation environment based on observations. The vision of this track is to push the boundaries of human understanding by marrying M&S with AI/ML.
This Machine Learning and Simulation (MLS) track is a dedicated forum to exchange our views, ideas, research methods, and applications to resolve the scientific questions of what and how cutting-edge AI/ML methods can synergize M&S and vice versa. This track explores M&S practices to which AI/ML methods are applied such as knowledge reasoning, computer vision, natural language processing, deep learning, and reinforcement learning.
In this track, we are seeking papers on original contributions across all modes of M&S leveraging AI/ML and interdisciplinary contributions that advance the state of the arts in AI/ML. This track will use the traditional format of having oral paper presentations. Topics of interest include, but not limited to:
  • Advancing validation and verification (V&V) using AI and ML
  • AI and ML methods for training and evolving agents
  • Best practices of convergence of AI and Simulation
  • Empirical comparisons of state-of-the-art AI and ML methods in M&S
  • Facilitating experimentation using AI and ML
  • M&S to improve AI and ML solutions
  • Simulation modeling tools and methods based on AI and ML
  • Simulation optimization using AI and ML
  • Visionary methodology of AI and ML in simulation
