This year, the AnyLogic Conference offers two unique 1-hour workshops on Wednesday morning. Find workshop agenda below. Note, due to popular demand, you must register for the workshop to attend, we will not accept walk-ins. These workshops are held in conjunction with the AnyLogic Conference 2016; you must be registered for the Conference to attend the workshops. These are workshops; bring your laptop and mouse to follow along.
The Hidden Gems of AnyLogic Benjamin Schumann, Ph. D., Senior Modeler at decisionLab
AnyLogic is an iceberg; 90% is hidden under the surface. The software boasts so many features that it is hard to keep track (let alone master them all). In this workshop, we will step back and revisit some hidden gems of AnyLogic that are easy to miss or forget. However, they can massively improve your modeling skills and end results.
We will build a simple simulation model of the AnyLogic Conference (capacity TBA), that employs a number of these hidden gems, such as:
- the magic lightbulb and how to interpret it
- code complete & good naming conventions
- the power of agent links
- organize your model with Option Lists
- tell your story with custom charts
- do-it-yourself with custom experiments
About the Instructor decisionLab designs and builds custom models and decision-support tools that help their clients to make evidence-based strategic, tactical and operational decisions. Benjamin, a significantly experienced AnyLogic user, works with diverse clients such as the MoD, Rolls-Royce and GSK. He handles project delivery from start to end, managing team members, and client communication. Benjamin Schumann holds a Ph.D. in Complex Systems Simulation and developed an advanced aerospace design simulation model for the early design phase. It was applied for designing several real unmanned aircraft (the first 3D-printed aircraft on the planet, see New Scientist: http://bit.ly/1D3UDSK. Ben enjoyed a thorough training in simulation modeling thanks to his Grad School on Complex Systems Simulation.
A Journey Through the Latest Version Andrei Borshchev, CEO of The AnyLogic Company and Nikolay Churkov, Head of Development at The AnyLogic Company
Take a journey through the newest version of AnyLogic with two of the masterminds behind AnyLogic as your guide. The workshop includes comprehensive how-tos for features of the newest version.
We will update the workshop agenda with specifics, closer to the conference.

Why AnyLogic simulation software?
☛ Reduce development cost and time
☑ Significantly speeds up the development process
☑ Quickly incorporate pre-built simulation elements
☑ Reusability through fully object oriented structure
☑ Easy to convert from other widely used IDEs
☑ Pre-built object libraries show how the experts did it!
☛ Develop more models with one tool
☑ Develop agent-based, system dynamics, discrete-event, continuous and dynamic system models, in any combination, with one tool
☑ Seamless integration of discrete & continuous simulations
☑ Java environment supports limitless extensibility including custom Java code, external libraries, and external data sources
☑ An extensive statistical distribution function set provides an excellent platform for simulating the uncertainty inherent in all systems
☑ A powerful experimental framework, built-in support for Monte Carlo simulations and advanced forms of optimization support a wide variety of simulation approaches
☛ Improve the visual impact of your models
☑ Animation functions allow the development of visually rich, interactive simulation environments
☑ Automatic applet creation allows users to quickly build simulations that can be broadly disseminated
☛ Run models anywhere
☑ Java environment supports Windows, Mac and Linux
☑ You don’t need a runtime license — one click & you generate a Java applet that allows users to run a model anywhere
☑ An AnyLogic model is completely separable from the development environment and can be exported as a standalone Java application
☛ Excellent Support and Consulting Services
☑ Unlimited detailed support to hard modeling questions
☑ Services range from training to model development
