Levent Yilmaz, faculty member in Auburn University’s Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering, has been named vice president of publications by the Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SCS). Yilmaz will be responsible for managing journals and magazines published by the society.
Yilmaz was also recently recognized at this year’s International Summer Simulation Multiconference, held July 8-11 in Genoa, Italy. He received the SCS Distinguished Service Award, an honor that represents an individual’s contributions to the profession through editorial service and as an executive officer, as well as a best paper award for his research, “Scholarly Communication of Reproducible Modeling and Simulation Research using e-Portfolios.” His article examines a growing credibility gap due to widespread, relaxed attitudes in communication of experiments, data and computer simulations used in computational science.
The Society for Computer Simulation was established in 1952 as a volunteer-driven, nonprofit corporation called Simulation Councils Inc. It was later renamed the Society for Modeling and Simulation International. SCS organizes meetings, sponsors and co-sponsors national and international conferences and publishes SIMULATION: Transactions of the Society for Modeling and Simulation International, the Journal of Defense Modeling and Simulation, M&S magazine, and the M&S newsletter.
