Dean Paul R. Cohen announced the launch of the Modeling and Managing Complicated Systems (MoMaCS) Institute in May during the school’s inaugural Modeling the World’s Systems Conference in Pittsburgh. The two-day conference, which featured panel discussions on the potential for modeling national security challenges, the aging process, the opioid epidemic and more, was designed to bring collaborators to the table and examine how the institute and modeling can help to find new solutions to complicated and age-old questions.

Cohen said the institute will serve as a hub where researchers and stakeholders from across disciplines collaborate on projects that utilize the power of computer modeling and simulation.
