The Military Modeling and Simulation Symposium is a series of annual spring gatherings devoted to the full breadth of modeling and simulation in the military domain. In addition to providing a venue for publication and presentation of peer-reviewed papers, the symposium is a place for networking, discussions, and exchange of information with military modelers and simulationists from around the world.

The symposium welcomes papers on any aspect of modeling and simulation related to the military, especially in any of the following areas:

  • Simulation Support to Operations
    • Battlefield Visualization
    • Course of Action Analysis
