Lean Summit Africa 2018 @ The Vineyard
Oct 30 – Oct 31 all-day

Transforming Organisations and Lives through Purpose-Process-People

The Lean Summit Africa 2018 is the 9th Summit hosted by the Lean Institute Africa. The Summit brings local and international speakers together with lean practitioners from across Africa. Their collective experience of lean implementation is unparalleled in Africa.

Lean Summit Africa 2018 will take place at The Vineyard Hotel in Cape Town on 30th October, 31st October and 1st November 2018. The Summit theme is Transforming Organisations and Lives Through Purpose-Process-People and the keynote speakers are Furuhashi, International Lean Practitioner (Japan), Kim Barnas, CEO of Catalysis, Healthcare Improvement Centre (USA), and David Brunt, CEO of Lean Enterprise Academy (UK). Previous speakers have included Jim Womack, Dan Jones, John Shook, Mike Rother and Michael Ballé.

At the Summit, the latest lean thinking and practice in both the private and public sectors will be presented alongside case studies from across South Africa. The Summit aims to present lean management to those who are new to it, and inspire and motivate those already using lean management in their organisations.

There will be at least two presentations from nonprofits:

Winter Simulation for a Noble Cause Conference 2018 – Sweden @ Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre
Dec 9 all-day
Winter Simulation for a Noble Cause Conference 2018 - Sweden @ Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre

The Winter Simulation Conference (WSC) is the premier international forum for disseminating recent advances in the field of system simulation. In addition to a technical program of unsurpassed scope and quality, WSC provides the central meeting place for simulation practitioners, researchers, and vendors working in all disciplines in industry, service, government, military and academic sectors.

Simulation has been found useful for a range of scientific, engineering and business applications as evident by the papers presented at Winter Simulation Conferences over the past 50 years. Simulation has been employed to help noble causes too over the recent past but such efforts have received limited attention. The 2018 conference seeks to highlight applications of simulation for noble causes in addition to continuing to report leading developments and applications in other fields. The track sessions will feature uses of simulation in efforts analyzing and addressing issues facing humanity including, but not limited to, reducing poverty and world hunger, social causes, social problems, improving natural environment, and disaster response.

Learn about simulation applications for analyzing social issues such as human trafficking in the keynote address by Dr. Jean Baderschneider, CEO of the Global Fund to End Slavery. Two excellent speakers will present during the conference lunches, Dr. Peter Frazier, Associate Professor at Cornell University and Staff Data Scientist and Data Science Manager at Uber, and Dr. Russell Cheng, Emeritus Professor at the University of Southampton.

WSC 2018 is sponsored by: ACM/SIGSIM, IISE (Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers), INFORMS-SIM and SCS (Society for Modeling and Simulation International), with Technical Co-Sponsorship from ASA (American Statistical Association), ASIM (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Simulation), IEEE/SMC (Systems, Man and Cybernetics) and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology).
