Gabriel Wainer, a professor in the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering at Carleton University, has won the Distinguished Professional Achievement Award given by the Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SCS).
The award was presented at the Summer Simulation Multi-Conference organized by SCS, held in Toronto. It recognizes a variety of Wainer’s technical contributions to the modeling and simulation discipline which have been widely disseminated in technical literature.
Wainer has had more than 280 papers published and four books, two of which are in Spanish. In 2011, he was awarded the Outstanding Professional Contribution Award by the SCS. His current work focuses on methodologies and techniques for improving models and simulations by making them faster, easier to use and more useful.
Established in 1952, the SCS works to advance the use of modelling and simulation to solve real-world problems and facilitate communication among industry professionals.
