Paranoid Android: Simulating Schizophrenia on a computer

Sound like what your brain feels like after an Angry Birds marathon or an 8-hour binge of searching for the end of the internet? Maybe. But this is actually the definition of schizophrenia. [...]









SimSummit Linkedin Group

SimSummit is now an open group on Linkedin. All future discussions will be fully visible, searchable, and shareable on the Web. Discussions already taking place are:

· Virtual Soldier Research at University of Iowa receives $8.6 million Navy contract for project that to increase combat effectiveness by having military personnel carry lighter loads into combat.

· The U. S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will sponsor a Homeland Security Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Workshop on June 14th and 15th, 2011.


Malaysian Armed Forces – Intensive Trainingin Simulation Techniques and Applications

The Joint Wargaming and Simulation Center (JWSC) staff of the Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) was subjected to intensive training in Simulation Techniques and Applications by the R&A[1] JTLS[2] engineering staff from 21 March through 6 May 2011. This training concentrated on the current capabilities of JTLS, Version 3.4.6, and a review of the forthcoming Version 4.0. The syllabus, as delivered by R&A, included […]


Modeling & Simulation for Homeland Security Workshop

The Modeling & Simulation for Homeland Security Workshop  will be held on June 14-15, 2011 at NIST campus in Gaithersburg, MD . The workshop will be organized around M&S in four domains with each addressed in a separate breakout track:  Critical Infrastructure, Hazardous Material Releases, Healthcare Systems, and Incident Management. The objective of the workshop is to develop documents that can serve as a common resource for researchers and analysts involved in M&S for homeland security applications in the four respective domains.
