  • The McLeod Modeling and Simulation Network (M&SNet) is a consortium of co-operating independent organizations active in professionalism, research, education, and knowledge dissemination in the modeling and simulation (M&S) domain. It was established in 2003 by the Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SCS).

  • The M&SNet aims to provide an organizational structure that will serve to integrate and enrich, within its organizations, modeling and simulation activities throughout the world. The M&SNet provides a framework within which organizations interested in M&S can interact, share expertise, and work on problems of common interest. 


    Mission of the M&SNet is to foster:

    Member organizations have access to strong and complementary expertise in professionalism, education, research, and knowledge dissemination. For example, when preparing proposals for external funding, participating researchers have access to other researchers in the M&SNet organizations. Researchers in these organizations also benefit from increased opportunities to be included in other proposals.

    To achieve this mission, M&SNet works to help its member organizations:

    Professional ethics
