NCS hall of fame

Hall of Fame Nominations

Thank you for your interest in the National Center for Simulation (NCS) Modeling & Simulation Hall of Fame.  The following information will help in nominating a candidate for induction into the NCS Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame was founded in March 2014 in Orlando, Florida and is on permanent display in the South Concourse of the Orange County Convention Center.  The principal objective of the NCS Hall of Fame is to honor and recognize individuals who have significantly contributed to advancements in modeling and simulation.

A nominee’s field or area of achievement is not limited only to defense.  Significant contributions in other areas (e.g. medical/healthcare, technology, entertainment, transportation, education, homeland security, gaming, and other areas) will also be considered.

The candidate’s nomination package must be received on or before January 31 of each year.  Any nomination package received after the deadline will be considered in the following year.

A subcommittee of the NCS Board of Directors will screen the nomination packages, prioritize selection recommendations and then forward those recommendations to the full NCS Board of Directors for final approval.  From the pool of qualified nominees, the NCS Board of Directors will normally select 2 – 5 individuals for induction into the NCS Hall of Fame annually.


Helpful Hints

Induction into the NCS Hall of Fame is an extremely prestigious accomplishment.  In order to make your nominee more competitive, please ensure your nomination package is as thorough, comprehensive, and documented as possible.  This should include non-returnable detailed narrative articles and pictures of the nominee.  As a minimum the following must be included in the nomination package (please provide NCS a printed and electronic copy):

  1. A detailed one page biography of the nominee.  Use a minimum of 11pt. font (larger if possible) and allow for a one inch margin on the left side, top and bottom of paper.
  2. A detailed one page summary of the nominee's achievements to include the following (additional supporting information may be attached to the summary):
    • National and/or international awards, decorations, honor, etc.?
    • When and where did the nominee make his or her personal significant contributions?
    • How are the nominee' contributions being used today?
    • What distinguishes the nominee from others in the same field?
    • Any other facts that you feel are pertinent to your nominee's package?

Generally, the more complete, documented, and thorough the nomination package, the greater chance of the individual being selected.  Please do not submit nomination packages in 3-ring binders, notebooks, etc.  As a reminder--please ensure you have the nominee's (or responsible individual's) authorization  before you submit them for consideration.


The candidate’s nomination package must be received by NCS on or before January 31st of each year.  Any nomination package received after the deadline will be considered the following year.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact NCS at 407-384-6111. A NCS Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held at the Orange County Convention Center site during the first six months of each year.  Exact date/time will be released closer to the event.
