NM&SC seeks to provide a forum to bring together disparate organizations in order to enable the M&S community to speak with one voice on areas of vital interest to the M&S community and professional practice as a whole. A continuing challenge has been, and continues to be, increasing the interchange of information among organizations involved in M&S, and widely spreading the knowledge of the benefits to be had by increased use of M&S technologies. The discipline of Modeling and Simulation is widely distributed across, and incorporates, many element of traditional disciplines such as computer science, engineering, the sciences, applied mathematics, digital visualization, and the social sciences. In establishing NM&SC as an affiliated of the National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA), its fundamental objectives are to develop collaborations and partnerships with existing professional societies with core interest in M&S, and to promote M&S as an industry and professional practice, and as a recognized discipline.
Listed here are the organizations with which the NM&SC currently has a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
Society for Modeling & Simulation International
Association for Computing Machinery – Special Interest Group on Simulation and Modeling
