MODSIM World 2014 is pleased to announce the Call for Abstracts. Abstracts can be submitted online at http://www.modsimconnected.com by October 31, 2013.

More than ever, decision makers, solution providers, and modeling & simulation (M&S) professionals have a need to innovate, adapt and evolve to be able to respond to changing environments. With its newly enhanced format, MODSIM World 2014 connects individuals to the M&S community, and problems to solutions, across disciplines and industries.

MODSIM World 2014 will take place April 15-17, 2014 at the Hampton Roads Convention Center in Hampton, Virginia. MODSIM World 2014 is a unique, multi-disciplinary, and international conference and exposition for the exchange of M&S knowledge, research, and technology across industry, government, and academia. This year’s theme,“Innovate, Simulate…Evolve,” responds to the changing fiscal environment and increasing need to connect M&S vendors to decision makers and M&S practitioners to each other.

MODSIM WORLD 2014, in keeping with its theme, is also evolving to facilitate this exchange. In addition to the planned presentation of papers, posters, and discussions of people engaged in or leveraging M&S, this year’s program promises more unique events, such as an Entrepreneur Competition, Technology Demonstrations, Grand Challenges, and Industry Workshops to provide an even more dynamic and engaging environment to showcase your ideas and accomplishments.

Contributors of selected papers and posters will be invited to lead and participate in panel discussions and presentations during plenary and scheduled breakout sessions. Past MODSIM World conference tracks have included:

  • Engineering and Applied Science
  • Homeland Security and Cyber Analytics
  • Education and Workforce Development
  • Defense, Healthcare and Medicine

Abstracts addressing crosscutting applications in M&S are welcome. Final conference tracks will be selected based on the accepted abstracts, but it is anticipated that at a minimum these tracks will be topics of discussion along with possible new tracks yet to be finalized.
