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

Modeling & Simulation Professional Development Committee - Mission Charter

Objectives of the Modeling & Simulation (M&S) Professional Development Committee:

  • liaise with academia providing M&S education in Alabama.
  • determine the different types of Professional Certification available.
  • target high schools and colleges and provide seminars to introduce M&S as a profession.
  • identify Continuing Education Opportunities in M&S.
  • utilizing the AMSC website and social media, provide current and valuable M&S professional development news to our Council members.
  • consider M&S body of knowledge.
  • support science fairs and other types of activities where AMSC can be introduced to students.

Goals of the M&S Professional Development Committee:

  • provide a one-stop for Council members to see which M&S education opportunities are available in Alabama.
  • provide an educational path for future and current simulationists.
  • provide guidance and references for M&S professional certification.
  • provide M&S Code of Ethics references.
  • make AMSC the go-to place for M&S professional development news in Alabama.

Ground Rules:

  • Each AMSC committee will actually compliment and share information directly and indirectly with other committees. Thus, strengthening all areas.
  • Timeline is unlimited and it is considered to be a continuous activity.
  • The M&S Professional Committee will self-organize and appoint a committee chair and vice-chair.
  • Participation is voluntary.
  • Alabama is the primary focus, but the focus can extend to national and international as needed.
  • The committee will report to the AMSC Board on progress made.
  • The AMSC Board, General Administration, and Website Manager will assist the committee as needed.
  • Membership is open to any M&S professional with a passion to see the results of their work which results in a continuous product that is a valuable asset to fellow simulationists in Alabama.

We will not build Rome in a day, but we can start to identify M&S Professional Development focus areas and be in the know of what the latest professional development news is.

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.

2017 AlaSim International

Call for Participation

For the 2017 AlaSim Conference technical program, we are soliciting abstracts for briefings on in-progress, planned, and completed modeling and simulation projects. Abstracts are reviewed by the conference committee for inclusion in the final program. Authors are asked and expected to pre-register and present their work at the conference. Optionally, papers are now accepted in lieu of briefings submissions.
