Modeling and simulation (M&S) plays an important role in the design analysis and performance evaluation of complex systems. Many of these systems, such as computer networks, involve a large number of interrelated components and processes. Complex behaviors emerge as these components and processes inter-operate across multiple scales at various granularities. M&S must be able to provide sufficiently accurate results while coping with the scale and complexity.
Dr. Jason Liu is currently an Associate Professor at the School of Computing and Information Sciences, Florida International University (FIU). He received a B.A. degree from Beijing University of Technology in China in 1993, an M.S. degree from College of William and Mary in 2000, and a Ph.D. degree in from Dartmouth College in 2003. He was also a postdoctoral researcher at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in 2003-2004 and also an Assistant Professor at Colorado School of Mines during 2004-2007. His research focuses on parallel simulation and performance modeling of computer systems and communication networks.Â He served both as General Chair and Program Chair for several conferences, and Â is currently on the steering committee of SIGSIM-PADS, and on the editorial board of ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation (TOMACS) and SIMULATION, Simulation Transactions of the Society for Modeling and Simulation International.Â He is an NSF CAREER awardee (2006) and an ACM Distinguished Scientist (2014). His research has been funded by various US federal agencies, including NSF, DOE, DOD, and DHS.
