- The McLeod Institute of Simulation Sciences ( MISS) is an initiative of the Society for Modeling and Simulation International ( SCS).
The Institute is named after Mr. John McLeod, the founder of the Society and the first editor of its journal, “Simulation.”
The MISS consists of co-operating Centers active in professionalism, research, education, and knowledge dissemination in the modeling and simulation (M&S) domain. Currently there are over 20 Centers established in over 10 countries.
All current Centers are located either within Universities or Research Centers. This reflects one of the underlying objectives of the Institute; namely, to enhance undergraduate and graduate teaching, research and training in the modelling and simulation discipline. More broadly, a fundamental goal is to stimulate the development, use and evaluation of instructional techniques and materials that exploit the power of simulation. The needs of modelling and simulation professionals are likewise being addressed at some Centers with the creation of appropriate study materials.
