The Institute brings together a large and diverse consortium of University of Southampton research groups involved in complex systems simulation modelling. These groups are drawn from departments that span the entire faculty of Science, Engineering and Mathematics, and also represent Medicine, Biology and Oceanography. We are also proud to include as partners a strong group of non-academic organisations that range across several industrial sectors, and government.
Our industrial stakeholders range from major blue-chip multinationals such as BT, BAE, Unilever, Rolls Royce, NAG, IBM, Airbus, and others, for whom complex systems simulation is an activity with growing strategic importance, through govt. bodies, e.g., MoD and DfT, to growing SMEs with business models explicitly founded on complex systems simulation: e.g., NaturalMotion, who build physical simulations of biological motion for the entertainment industry, including the character animation for Grand Theft Auto IV.
