Title: MBSE with/out Simulation: State of the Art and Way Forward.
Summary: The limitations of model-based support for engineering complex systems include limited capability to develop multifaceted models, as well as their analysis with robust reliable simulation engines. Lack of such Modeling and Simulation (M&S) infrastructure leads to knowledge gaps in engineering such complex systems and these gaps appear as epistemological emergent behaviors. In response, an initiative is underway to bring Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) closer together with model-based simulation developments. M&S represents a core capability and is needed to address today’s complex, adaptive, systems of systems engineering challenges.
This talk will consider the problems raised by MBSE taken as a modeling activity without the support of full strength integrated simulation capability and the potential for, and possible forms of, closer integration between the two streams. An example of a system engineering application, an unmanned vehicle fleet providing emergency ambulance service, will be examined as an application of the kind of multifaceted M&S methodology required to effectively deal with such systems.
The 2020 American Control Conference Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, Denver, Colorado | July 1 – 3, 2020
You are cordially invited to attend the 2020 American Control Conference (ACC), which will be held July 1-3 in Denver, Colorado, USA at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel. The Sheraton is conveniently located in downtown Denver on a mile-long pedestrian promenade filled with outdoor bistros, shopping, and entertainment and close to attractions like the Denver Art Museum and the Denver Botanic Gardens.
In addition to a high-quality technical program, the conference will include a banquet at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. See an IMAX movie, learn about Egyptian mummies, or take a trip back to prehistoric time, all while enjoying the company of colleagues. Consider extending your stay to explore the Rocky Mountain National Park, Garden of the Gods or one of Colorado’s more than two dozen national parks, monuments, or forests.
The 2020 ACC Operating Committee invites the worldwide participation of all those interested in the theory and practice of automatic control systems. Welcome to Denver!
Initial submissions are due September 23, 2019.

We live in exciting times in which the power of data and computing are at our fingertips. With this increased power comes increased complexity – which invites simulation as a natural tool to help drive innovation. This, in turn, allows us to innovate in the theory and practice of simulation itself. We invite papers that highlight innovations in both simulation theory and applications, with a specific interest in innovative uses of simulation in unconventional areas such as the humanities, social sciences, and the arts..
