The DHSS proceedings are indexed by Scopus.

Conference Aim
DHSS 2017 is a workshop focusing on the advances and potential of using M&S within this framework will bring experts together for the purpose of presenting and discussing all type of innovation related to the use of Modeling & Simulation in Defense and Homeland Security applications. DHSS will focus on new concepts, methods, techniques and tools for advancing in modeling & simulation sector. The International Program Committee will accept two types of camera-ready papers: extended paper (10 pages, 2 columns); regular paper (6 pages, 2 columns). Please refer to the online author’s instruction section.
