Since 1952, The Society for Modeling and Simulation International has been a multi-disciplinary society made up of working scientists, researchers, designers and managers who are focused on advancing the use of computer simulation. Each year SCS holds multiple events where M&S professionals from around the world come together to advance their professional development share ideas, benchmark processes, and network with each other.

SCS hosts or sponsors a number of conferences each year where participants may present papers, attend technical sessions, visit exhibit areas, interface with vendors and network with other M&S professionals. At any of the SCS International sponsored conferences you may present a paper or just attend the technical sessions. Whichever choice, you benefit from the professional exchange of information and the camaraderie created by the social environment. The conference locations are picked with the family in mind, so that they can enjoy the surroundings while you participate in the conference.

SCS also publishes the proceedings of each conference for distribution to attendees and resale to other modeling and simulation professionals. A listing of all SCS International publications, provided to members free of charge, can be obtained from the SCS office.
