Folks, Please note that abstracts for this Conference are due today! For your convenience, here is the Call for Papers originally sent out on 15 November 2000: CALL FOR PAPERS TENTH CONFERENCE ON COMPUTER GENERATED FORCES AND BEHAVIORAL REPRESENTATION Sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency Defense Modeling and Simulation Office Simulation Training and Instrumentation Command Office of Naval Research Air Force Research Laboratory National Air and Space Administration In affiliation with Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization International Standards Activity Group Defence Evaluation and Research Agency Norfolk Waterside Marriott Norfolk, VA May 15-17, 2001 You are invited to participate in the 2001 Conference on Computer Generated Forces and Behavioral Representation (CGF&BR). The challenge before the computer generated forces (CGF) community is to connect knowledge and theory of human behavior with robust modeling technologies to deliver computer representations that act realistically without human intervention. The annual CGF&BR event provides a forum to address the full scope of human behavior modeling across the spectrum of simulation application areas extending from training and mission rehearsal to analysis, acquisition, planning, and experimentation for both military and non-military environments. The conference enables modeling and simulation application users and technical communities to meet, to share ideas and experiences, and to identify gaps in current capabilities as well as highlight promising technologies. ABSTRACT SUBMISSION INFORMATION The CGF&BR invites papers and panel discussions on issues affecting how individuals, groups, teams and organizations are represented in models and simulations. Abstracts are reviewed and selected for consideration by the Conference Committee. Papers may be selected for presentation or for publication only. Individuals who wish to submit abstracts should review the abstract submission form posted at If you have any questions about the submission process or are unable to submit to the web site, please contact Pat Burgess, [log in to unmask], phone: (407) 658-5031, fax: (407) 658-5059.
