CONFERENCE: 1st General Conference of the International Microsimulation Association, Vienna, Austria
The International Microsimulation Association, launched in October 2005, aims to promote the free inter-change of experience and ideas between practitioners of microsimulation worldwide. The path-breaking work that created the field of socioeconomic microsimulation—'Microanalysis of Socioeconomic Systems: A Simulation Study (1961)' —was performed by Guy Orcutt and his colleagues in the US in the late 1950s. More recently, leaders in this field have been NATSEM at The University of Canberra. Professor Ann Harding form NATSEM is the President of the International Microsimulation Association. The first conference was in Vienna on 20th to 22nd of August 2007.
