The goal of this meeting is to showcase research and applications in the general HSCB modeling area and to engage OSD HSCB Modeling Program personnel as well as leading scientific and technical experts working in HSCB related fields in a technical exchange. A specific focus of this conference will be to promote communication between the development and user communities and to facilitate the transition of HSCB capabilities into operational use. In addition to personnel from the OSD HSCB Modeling Program, representatives from both DoD and other Government agencies are expected to attend and showcase their programs in this area. Researchers and developers from industry, academia, and government labs, including current HSCB program awardees, are invited to present their work and ideas related to HSCB technologies. Additionally, representatives from end-user communities within DOD and elsewhere in the US government are strongly encouraged to present requirements, use cases, and challenge problems to the community.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The OSD HSCB Modeling Program is the primary computational modeling initiative which is executed by the Defense Department, through the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the Army Geospatial Center (AGC). The program has some of the country’s best minds doing great research and pushing the state of the art to research, develop, and transition technologies, tools, and systems that will help intelligence analysts, operations analysts, operations planners, and wargamers represent, understand, and forecast socio-cultural behavior at the strategic, operational and tactical level.
HSCB Program technical goals span three progressive levels: applied research, advanced technology development, and demonstration and transition.
