The BRIMS (Behavioral Representation in Modeling & Simulation)
submission deadline is 13 days away! 
Please ensure your submissions are completed and uploaded to the
submission website by December 21st! 
(see for details)

You are invited to participate in the 19th Conference on Behavior
Representation in Modeling and Simulation (BRIMS). BRIMS enables
and simulation research scientists, engineers, and technical communities
across disciplines to meet, share ideas, identify capability gaps,
cutting-edge research directions, highlight promising technologies, and
showcase the state-of-the-art in applications. The BRIMS Conference will
consist of many exciting elements in 2010, including special topic
technical paper sessions, special symposia/panel discussions, and
laboratory sponsor sessions. 

BRIMS 2010 includes a dynamic and eclectic lineup of keynote speakers:
Wayne Gray, PhD
      Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, 
LCDR Joseph Cohn, Phd
Jerrold Post, MD 
      George Washington University,
Robert Axtell, PhD 
      George Mason University,

The BRIMS Executive Committee invites papers, posters, demos, symposia,
panel discussions, and tutorials on topics related to the representation
individuals, groups, teams and organizations in models and simulations.
submissions are peer-reviewed (see for
additional details on submission types). 

Key Dates:
All submissions due:          December 21, 2009
Tutorial Acceptance:          February 1, 2010
