Abstract for: Creating Interactive Simulations Online with Forio Epicenter

Forio Epicenter provides templates that makes it easy to produce an online simulation that works on both laptop computers and smartphones. Forio Epicenter allows you to create an interface so users can interact with your Vensim, Powersim, or Stella Pro model online. Forio can host your simulation for you, and the platform also has the ability to integrate with your existing IT infrastructure, making it enterprise-compatible. Forio Epicenter provides tiered control for tens or thousands of users. During this workshop, we will start with an introduction to Epicenter and sample interactive online models. Then we’ll divide the workshop into two parts. In the first part we will teach you how to get your Vensim, Stella Pro, or Powersim model on Epicenter so it can be shared. In the second part we’ll focus on creating a user interface for your model.
