The Department of the Air Force will host its Air Force Modeling and Simulation Summit at The Clyde Hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico, May 9-11.

The M&S Summit supports the implementation of the DAF M&S Strategy by bringing together more than 100 Department of Defense, industry, academia and international partners.


Hosted by Richard Tempalski, Department of the Air Force chief modeling and simulation officer, and Dr. Lisa Costa, Space Force chief technology and innovation officer, the summit will cover current and future modeling and simulation activities and how they support the fusion of air and space, as well as their impact on multi-domain operations to cultivate a distinct M&S community culture.

The 2023 summit theme, “Fusing Air and Space into Multidomain Operations: The Fight is On,” exemplifies how the services are in alignment with the National Defense Strategy to advance the DAF M&S mission and goals.

The three-day summit agenda will explore the following topics:

  • Day 1: M&S Enabling Resilient Space Capabilities
  • Day 2: M&S Integrating Space Capabilities into Multi-Domain Operations
  • Day 3: Transformational M&S Enablers

The summit features six eminent keynote speakers, more than eight mission focus areas, six panel discussions and Q&A sessions. With reduced COVID-19 restrictions, this year's event is expected to bring between 500-1000 participants.
