About SCS


Established in 1952, The Society for Modeling & Simulation International (SCS) is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven corporation (dba Simulation Councils, Inc.) managed by a Board of Directors & a President's Council.   SCS is the only technical Society dedicated to advancing the use of modeling & simulation to solve real-world problems.  SCS is the principal technical society devoted to the advancement of simulation and allied computer arts in all fields. The purpose of SCS is to facilitate communication among professionals in the field of simulation. To this end, SCS organizes meetings of regional councils, sponsors and co-sponsors national and international conferences, and publishes different journals and an official newsletter in the field of Modeling & Simulation.
