    Context and Protocol for the SimSummit Forum
    on the
    Future of the Modeling and Simulation
    Profession, Industry and Marketplace

    W. Waite, F Cellier, R. Severinghaus, and F. Lewis
    SimSummit Executive Committee

  • Concept - SimSummit is an occasional forum – kept relatively informal by mutual agreement - of organizations with broad interest in M&S technology, professional development, industry and market.
  • Participation - Organizational membership includes Government, Commercial, Academic and Professional organizations. Members are expected to conform to established membership criteria. Membership is initiated by an official expression of interest by the applicant organization, indicating its role in the M&S community-of-practice and its interest in participating in the SimSummit forum. Acceptance of the organization as a member of the forum is by consensus of existing member organizations as determined by the Executive Committee.
  • Leadership – Leadership coordination is provided by an Executive Committee, populated by the senior executives of the three original sponsoring organizations, plus one ad hoc member. Current members of the SimSummit Executive Committee are:
    • RADM Fred Lewis (USN Ret.) – Director, National Training Systems
      Association (NTSA) flewis@ndia.org
    • Warren katz – Chairman, Executive Committee of the Simulation
      interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) katz@mak.com
    • Dr. Francoise Cellier, President, the Society for Modeling and Simulation
      International [SCS] cellier@ece.arizona.edu, and
    • Bill Waite, President The AEgis Technologies Group, Inc.
      Bwaite@AEgisTG.com
  • Management – Management decisions and direction are performed by the organizational membership at large operating as the Committee-of-the-whole, assuming a protocol of one-organization-one vote, and striving whenever possible for unanimous consensus.
  • Functional Operations – General and administrative operations are performed by the Executive Committee. Direct operations are routinely performed by the SimSummit member organizations structured as a “committee-of-the-whole”. Occasional services are provided to the SimSummit collective by one or more of the participating member organizations on an “as-needed” basis.
  • Product Generation – Product generation results from the efforts of the executive Committee in executing one or another general and administrative function; by the Committee-of-the-whole in participating in events; or by one or another member organization in executing particular activities. Products and other useful information assets are posted to the web site as appropriate.
