Military Modeling and Simulation Symposium (MMS'06)

Part of the 2006 Spring Simulation Multiconference (SpringSim'06)

Sponsored by:
The Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SCS)

April 2 - 6, 2006

Von Braun Center
Holiday Inn Select, Huntsville Downtown
Huntsville, AL


The 2006 Military Modeling and Simulation Symposium will continue a series of annual spring symposiums devoted to the full breadth of modeling and simulation in the military domain. This symposium, like the others in the Spring Simulation Multiconference, is a place for networking, discussions, and exchange of information with colleagues in your field and in other related fields. It also provides an international forum for acquiring unpublished public information on the latest technologies.  The symposium organizers welcome papers on any aspect of military modeling and simulation.

Plenary Speaker:

John R. "Buck" Surdu, Program Manager, OneSAF    BIO
