The NATO Modelling & Simulation Coordination Office (MSCO) has issued a Call for Papers for the 2020 conference of the NATO Modelling & Simulation Group (NMSG). The Symposium will be held in Bath, UK from 22 to 23 October 2020, supported by the NATO Modelling and Simulation Group of the Science and Technology Organization (STO).

This year’s symposium theme will be “Towards On-Demand Personalized Training and Decision Support”.

The MSG-177 Programme Committee invites papers on how military M&S systems should modernize to meet the demands of a digital savvy war fighter. In particular, how can modern simulation solutions (e.g. mixed reality, M&S as a Service, AI-based simulation) provide cost-effective personalised training at the point of need, or provide timely decision support or planning tools, for rapidly changing and complex operations in hybrid warfare or in the grey-zone. Papers may cover the full range of applications: including air, land, maritime, cyber, space, autonomous systems, influence and information operations, C4ISR and military-civil decision making support.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 30 April 2020.

All sessions will be unclassified and conducted at Public Release level. The event is open to NATO, Partnership for Peace, Global Partners and Invited Contact Countries.
