Facilitated Brainstorming


Simulation for the Common Man: How do We Make M&S Accessible?


Given the power of insight and learning that simulation provides, you might question why simulation is not more widely used. This facilitated interactive brainstorming session intends to discuss this question and others to try and understand how our M&S community can reach new users and decision makers. Part of our goal is to try and understand what our equivalent to the “got milk?” slogan would be. All attendees welcome
1600 – 1700

External Event: Nation Modeling and Simulation Coalition (NMSC) Workshop (TBD)



The National Modeling & Simulation Coalition (NMSC) is an unincorporated, voluntary, nonprofit coalition sponsored by and composed of government, industrial and educational organizations and professional societies having a common interest in promoting and leveraging M&S to better the human condition and to strengthen the National well-being. The mission of the NMSC is to create a unified national community of individuals and organizations around the M&S discipline and professional practice and to be the principal advocate for M&S. This event is a meeting of the NMSC. Please join us even if you are not already a member!
