Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


An account is given on the initial steps in the formulation of a strategic vision for simulation research. In particular, problems are addressed involving: the size and complexity of models; verification, validation and accreditation; the modeling methodological and model execution implications of parallel and distributed simulation; the centrality of modeling to the discipline of computer science; and random number generation and execution efficiency improvements through quasi-Monte Carlo, and variance reduction.
