The BRiMS 2012 Submission Deadline is fast approaching
All submissions must be in by January 6, 2012

For details on submission content, guidelines, and templates, please
navigate to:
You are invited to participate in the 21st Conference on Behavior
Representation in Modeling and Simulation (BRiMS), to be held at the
Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort in Amelia Island, Florida. BRiMS
enables modeling and simulation research scientists, engineers, and
technical communities across disciplines to meet, share ideas, identify
capability gaps, discuss cutting-edge research directions, highlight
promising technologies, and showcase the state-of-the-art in Department
of Defense related applications. The BRiMS Conference will consist of
many exciting elements in 2012, including special topic areas, technical
paper sessions,  special symposia/panel discussions, and government
laboratory sponsor sessions. 

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