CF Participation: BRIMS 2011

BRIMS 2011,  21-24 March 2011,  6 Jan 2011 submission deadline

You are invited to participate in the 20th Conference on Behavior
Representation in Modeling and Simulation (BRIMS), to be held at the
Sundance Resort in Sundance, UT. BRIMS enables modeling and simulation
research scientists, engineers, and technical communities across
disciplines to meet, share ideas, identify capability gaps, discuss
cutting-edge research directions, highlight promising technologies,
and showcase the state-of-the-art in Department of Defense related
applications. The BRIMS Conference will consist of many exciting
elements in 2011, including special topic areas, technical paper
sessions,  special symposia/panel discussions, and government
laboratory sponsor sessions.

Highlights of BRIMS 2011 include a fantastic lineup of keynote
speakers spanning cognitive modeling, sociocultural modeling, and
network science:
John Laird, University of Michigan,
Lael Schooler, Max Planck Institute,
Kathleen Carley, CMU,
Chris Barrett,  Virginia Tech,

The BRIMS Executive Committee invites papers, posters, demos,
symposia, panel discussions, and tutorials on topics related to the
