This year’s conference will bring together leaders in the Modeling and Simulation field focused on novel M&S applications and practices targeted at preparing for a rapidly changing future. This unique, multi-disciplinary, and international conference and exposition features three presentation tracks, focusing on M&S communities of practice: Industry, Community, and Security. There are topic areas that transcend across these main tracks that include Training, Education, Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Extended Reality, Gamification, and Visualizations.

INDUSTRY: The advancement of M&S within industry applications improves processes, outcomes, facilities, and equipment for the future of manufacturing, engineering, and infrastructure development. This track seeks papers focused on innovative M&S approaches and solutions that are rapidly moving the industry forward.

COMMUNITY: From health sciences and academics to social and environmental innovations, M&S is helping to transform all aspects of our current and future communities. This track seeks papers that discuss the application of pioneering concepts, methods, and technologies to enhance the application of M&S for the benefit of the greater community. 

SECURITY: M&S is critical to the acceleration of our national and international defense and security. To maintain a competitive edge, M&S facilitates rapid assessment and implementation of security protocols, practices, and procedures.
