NATO Modelling & Simulation Centre of Excellence

In Cooperation with



Specialized Media Partners

Military Training & Simulation Magazine




The NATO M&S COE is dedicated to the promotion of M&S in support of operational requirements, training and interoperability. The Centre acts as a catalyst for transformation through the involvement of NATO, governments, academia, industry, operational and training entities, by improving the networking of NATO and nationally owned M&S systems, the cooperation between nations and organisations through the sharing of M&S information and developments and serving as an international source of expertise for transformation in the related domain.


Inter-domain and multi-disciplinary exchange of knowledge within Modelling & Simulation and Robotics communities of interest.
MESAS’22 is a two-day conference organized by the NATO Modelling and Simulation COE within the FUTURE FORCES FORUM. The event gathers fully recognized experts from different domains: Military, Academia and Industry.
Don’t miss the opportunity to present your work, results and insight during MESAS’22, send us your presentation abstract and share your knowledge with leading experts.
Take the opportunity to enhance visibility of your company, take a look to Exhibition Opportunities 
and Partnership Opportunities within the FUTURE FORCES FORUM to understand how to enter the family of MESAS’22 supporters and visionaries.


NATO M&S COE requests all interested researchers and technicians of academic, industrial or military research centers to send an abstract, to be evaluated by members of MESAS’22 Technical Program Committee.
Authors of approved abstracts will be asked to prepare a full paper following the Springer template, then to present the paper during the MESAS’22 Conference.
Full papers selected by the Scientific Committee will be included in the post conference proceedings. Previous MESAS proceedings are indexed in the ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Indes – Science (CPCI-S) and EI Engineering Index (Compendex and Inspec databases).
