Our Conference's Theme
EUROsimA 2023 will focus on the theme of “Cutting the Gordian Knot: Decisive Action to Tackle Global Issues” with the aim of highlighting the European Union’s unique capacity and integrated structure, which have proven invaluable in the new age of anxieties ushered in by the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the weakening of multilateralism worldwide.
"We sometimes forget that our greatest achievements have always come when we are bold."

Message from Secretary-General
It is a great pleasure for me to welcome you all to EUROsimA 2023. Ever since I first experienced this amazing organization 5 years ago in 2018, when I was just a sophomore high school student, I always dreamed of becoming the Secretary-General here. This was actually one of the reasons why I was motivated to try and get into ODTÜ. Now, after all that time, it is thrilling to be here. Acting with this special motivation in mind, I hope to provide a unique and qualified experience for all of you who will be with us during this conference. I am certain that our team, with whom I would go to battle with, will make sure that EUROsimA 2023 goes down in history as not just one of the best of its kind, but as one of the best among all European simulation conferences in recent memory.
It is with deep anticipation that I am looking forward to experiencing this conference together.
