Advances in Modelling and Simulation

2003 Information & Security An International Journal  
volume 3 that was focused on Modeling and Simulation (M&S) techniques and their applications to security related issues including defense, internal security and international cooperation. Since that time, the use of modeling and simulation (M&S) is becoming even more pervasive throughout the NATO defense environment. The value of simulations to defense establishments has been repeatedly proven by providing readily available, operationally valid environments to train jointly, develop doctrine

To address the advances made in the field, Information & Security has decided to publish a second issue devoted to defense modeling and simulation. We have received many papers covering the broad spectrum of topics in defense modeling and simulation. In particular, based on the accepted papers, we have decided to organize the special journal issue on advances in modeling and simulation in two numbers. Volume 12, number 1 focuses on the following groups of topics:  Review of Defense Modeling and Simulation  Computer Generated Forces, and  Agent-based Modeling and Simulation. Number 2 deals with:  Simulation Reuse and Interoperability  M&S Applications, and  M&S in Information Assurance. Review of Defense Modeling and Simulation The objective of the first group of papers is to provide a review of the achievements in defense modeling and simulation. While the first paper takes a global perspective, the second discusses the R&D work performed in a single country -Croatia.
