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 located on International Drive in Orlando, Florida. The principal objective of the NCS Hall of Fame is to honor, recognize, and protect the legacy of 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, space, and other areas) will also be considered.
Anyone may submit an individual for consideration. Please ensure you have the nominee’s (or responsible individual’s) authorization before you submit them for consideration.
