Promoting Alabama as the
recognized leader in the
development and application
of modeling and simulation

AMSC Committees
Call for Participants

The mission of the Alabama Modeling and Simulation Council (AMSC) is to promote the modeling and simulation (M&S) industry in the State of Alabama. The goal is to create a forum of knowledge and experience that provides direct value to the whole M&S community. Alabama’s M&S industry is competent, diverse and growing. As an advocate, AMSC is one voice representing many simulationists.

In order to continue accomplishing this goal, AMSC is now recruiting simulationists, professionals and leaders who have a passion for the success of this unique industry. The committees are Technology, Industry, Marketplace and Professional Development. Where does your expertise fit in? Knowledge gained in one committee has direct application to the other committees. This participation results in a continuous forum that provides immediate value back to the industry.

We are all busy, but volunteering for these committees and investing a little time will strengthen the current and future M&S industry. Help us chart the course of direction. For more details about a specific committee, please click the links below. You can join multiple committees.

  • Technology Committee - What are we doing in Alabama and what are the latest trends? Who are the players in the M&S industry?
  • Industry Committee - Why should an industry choose Alabama to work in? What does Alabama offer? What are the standards practitioners use? Liaison with M&S organizations to learn what they do.
  • Professional Development Committee - Encourage students to consider a career in M&S. Showcase a plan for practitioners that covers recommended education and professional certification for their specific field. What are our Code of Ethics?
  • Marketplace (Business Development) - Explore the M&S market size in Alabama in terms of how many organizations utilize M&S; how many employees and the revenue from M&S. Showcase the impact to the Alabama economy by the M&S market. Track any trends affecting the M&S market (budgets, BRAC). Provide the M&S market a venue to showcase their products.

If you wish to volunteer or have comments or questions, please contact info@almsc.org. There is no closure date for requests to join a committee. The invitation will remain open.
