Abstract : The objectives of the Task Group (MSG-058) include: 1) Clarify the Conceptual Model concepts, discuss the terminology, and emphasize the utility to better formalize conceptual models; 2) Investigate methodologies, simulation and software engineering processes, initiatives and technologies useful for the establishment of conceptual models; 3) Identify the relevant stakeholders of conceptual models; 4) Address the needs of M&S community, identifying the way conceptual models may contribute to M&S development, and provide guidance to implementation; 5) Provide guidelines for standards in conceptual modeling for M&S; thereby specifying a conceptual model to be (re)usable by users with similar knowledge; 6) Draft a guidance document on conceptual models that can be used by different stakeholders; and 7) Foster the establishment of the guidance document as a SISO standard. This document is intended to serve as best-practice prescriptive guidance for the life cycle management of conceptual modeling in support of modeling and simulation effort within the NATO M&S enterprise. Subsequently, the contents of this document are expected to serve as a basis of evolution of conceptual modeling throughout the international M&S community of practice by virtue of its influence upon further international standards.
