András Gáspár, Simula Foundation Hungary, Budapest, HungaryThe ASU is a professional organization concerned with computerized modeling of complex systems as well as the design of computer software using the Object Oriented Programming paradigm. The ASU started in 1974 as a Users Group for the SIMULA programming language. The SIMULA Standard appeared in 1967, introducing the worlds first object oriented programming language. This was preceded by several years of development work at the Norwegian Computing Center in Oslo. The current modern SIMULA systems provide the user with powerful and stable application programming tools for basic as well as advanced computerized modeling work. With the exception of the Beta programming language, other broadly used OOP-languages are conceptual subsets of the SIMULA language. Over the years, the ASU expanded its field of interests to encompass software aids and methodologies for structuring and programming complex system models. The ASU organizes an annual conference and edits a regular Newsletter as a forum for SIMULA users as well as users of other OOP-languages. The ASU supports developments and events in the various fields of Object Orientation and especially developments in Model Oriented Programming.
