Research Interests
Modeling and Simulation (M&S)
  • Advanced methodologies (such as multi-models and multi-simulations as  well as systems theories and systems engineering in modeling and simulation)

  • Agent-directed simulation (ADS) (including agent simulation, agent-initiated simulation, agent-supported simulation, and agent-based simulation)

  • Cognitive and emotive simulations (such as simulation of human behavior by agents with dynamic personality and emotions; agents with perception, anticipation, and understanding abilities; and cognitive and emotive simulation applications for threat-management training)

  • Quality, and Failure Avoidance in Simulation

  • Ethics in Simulation

  • Multilingual as well as ontology-based dictionaries of modeling and simulation

  • Body of Knowledge of modeling and simulation

- Contributions of Dr. Ören to the advancement of modeling and
