This year BRIMS is being co-located with the Spring Simulation
Interoperability Workshop (SIW), which will provide an outstanding
opportunity for scientic and technical exchange on research and
application in human behavior representation with the larger modeling
and simulation community.  BRIMS enables modeling and simulation
research scientists, engineers, application users, and technical
communities to meet, share ideas and experiences, identify gaps in
current capabilities, discuss new research directions, highlight
promising technologies, and showcase applications. The BRIMS Executive
Committee invites papers, posters, demos, symposia, panel discussions,
and tutorials on topics related to the representation of individuals,
groups, teams and organizations in models and simulations.  All
submissions are peer-reviewed.

Paper submissions are full papers but are limited to 5 pages and
should describe original research that has not been published
elsewhere.  Accepted papers are published in the Proceedings.  Papers
not accepted as full papers will be considered for poster

Proposals for Symposia and Panel Discussions, Interactive Sessions,
Exhibitions, and Tutorials are also solicited.  Abstracts for selected
symposia/panel discussions will be published in the Proceedings.
