What is it?
The Society for Computer Simulation International,
founded in 1952, is a technical society dedicated
to the improvement of the art and science of computer
modeling and simulation, and their application to
study and alleviate problems of our society.
To this end SCSI organizes and co-sponsors conferences
and publishes a technical journal SIMULATION, and
TRANSACTIONS of archival material related to its interests.
"Simulation in the Service of Society" is a non-technical,
newsletter-type section of the journal SIMULATION
devoted to keeping readers informed as to what is
going on in simulation and related fields.
MISSION EARTH is an Activity of the Society, the
purpose of which is:
"To promote progress toward a SUSTAINABLE GLOBAL SYSTEM.
because of our concern for the future;
GLOBAL, to counter the untenable
imbalance between regions and nations;
SYSTEM, because of inescapable
interactions among all aspects of all sectors involved."
Our objective is to accomplish this by surveying
and publishing information on modeling and simulation
work, in progress and completed, with results and
comments, in an effort to reduce duplication of effort
and improve the technology.
Our belief is that solutions to global problems,
as well as others, are much easier to arrive at, and
more likely to prove beneficial, if there is a good
understanding of the system in which the problem is
embedded -- AND, that modeling and simulation are
among the best tools for imparting understanding that
modern technology has produced.
You are invited to join us in our efforts.
