The 2012 Autumn Simulation Multiconference is a state-of-the-art conference involving several different academic subjects and areas of professional activity. AutumnSim provides a unique opportunity to learn about emerging M&S applications in many thriving fields. Areas covered include Defense & Military, Homeland Security, Medical Processes, Education & Training, and Energy, Climate & Environment. The inaugural year of this conference proudly coincides with the 60th anniversary of the Society for Modeling and Simulation (SCS). This conference meets the needs of our simulation community by offering rigorous paper reviews, as well as those of our industry participants by providing a broad range of technical topics. Proposals are solicited for papers, panels, tutorials, workshops, seminars, social activities and for other presentation, discussion and sponsorship formats. Opportunities are also available for organizing and volunteering roles.

AutumnSim offers many ways to promote simulation products and to enhance corporate images. Scientist, engineers, managers, educators, and business professionals who develop or use simulation tools are invited to participate and present original papers. All accepted papers are published on the conference CD, by SCS and in hard-copy by Curran's Print-on-Demand service.

New Ideas!

We are also always looking for good proposals for papers, panels, tutorials, workshops, seminars, exhibits, and social activities. If you have ideas for other presentation, discussion and sponsorship formats, please forward them to the conference General Chair.

Volunteer Opportunities!

We encourage you to consider taking on a leadership role in the conference – it improves the quality of our event and enhances you professionally. To volunteer, contact the General Chair or the SCS office
