Jack P.C. Kleijnen is Professor of 'Simulation and Information Systems' at Tilburg University, where he is a member of the 'Department of Information Management' and the 'Operations Research' group of CentER of the ' Tilburg School of Economics and Management (TiSEM)'.

His research concerns simulation, especially the statistical design and analysis of experiments with simulation models, in many scientific disciplines (management, economics, engineering, etc.). He has been a consultant for several organizations in the USA and Europe. He serves on many international editorial boards and scientific committees. He spent several years in the USA, at universities and private companies. He received a number of national and international awards; e.g., in 2008 the Queen of the Netherlands appointed him a Knight in the Order of the Netherlands Lion and in 2005 the INFORMS Simulation Society awarded him the Lifetime Professional Achievement Award (LPAA) (also see OR/MS Today and INFORMS/Simulation Society). In 2005 he also presented a "Titans of Simulation" seminar at the Winter Simulation Conference.

More information can be found via the tabs at the top of this page (called 'CV', etc.), including details on more than 200 publications, seminars (national and international), courses on design and analysis of simulation experiments, CV details (addresses, editorial boards, consulting, previous employment, education, committees, professional associations, 'who is who' listings, etc.), and academic honors.
