Simplifying complex problems, processes or situations will be the topic of a one-day engineering management summit to be held Wednesday, Sept. 13 at Old Dominion University.

The purpose of the Managing and Engineering in Complex Situations (MECS) Summit will be to begin labeling practice specific problems and issues related to complex situations. A preview of next year's three-day forum, the organizational event also provides an opportunity to clearly articulate what type of multifaceted processes exist so that potential simplifications may be sought. Once identified, these issues, topics, and solutions will be discussed at length in the 2007 MECS Forum.

Researchers, along with representatives of industry, government and academia will be attending the Summit to discuss issues in our most complex systems. Proposed topic areas for the Summit include:
· Strategic Management
· Innovation
· Prototyping - Engineering
· Control & Management in Complex Situations
· Visualization and Decision Support Systems
· Modeling and Simulation

Complete information on the Summit can be found at www.mecsforum.com.
