DoD MODELING AND SIMULATION (M&S) GLOSSARY - Its purpose is to prescribe a uniform glossary of modeling and simulation (M&S) terminology for use throughout the Department of Defense. In addition to the main glossary of terms, this Manual includes a list of M&S-related abbreviations, acronyms, and initials commonly used within the DoD. (Provided by Floyd Spencer)


The Workshop on Foundations for Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Verification and Validation (V&V) in the 21st Century, better known as Foundations 02, was held October 22-24, 2002  at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland.   Foundations 02 was designed to address four significant issues related to modeling and simulation verification and validation (M&S V&V): (1) the need for articulation of the current state of the M&S V&V art; (2) the need for an up-to-date comprehensive bibliography of M&S V&V; (3) the need for a coherent and extensive synopsis of M&S V&V research needs; and (4) improvement in communications about V&V across various M&S community boundaries with an eye toward exchange of lessons learned and leveraging opportunities to encourage broader use of best practices. The following site contains links to many of the papers and/or presentations. (Provided by Floyd Spencer)
