The emergency management and planning newsletter discusses

issues in national and international aspects of natural and

non natural emergency management (i.e. homeland security,

policies, etc). The newsletter is published on a bi-monthly

basis and is available by listserv. For additional

3. Thoughts on Emergency Management - Goals
1. PAPERS RECEIVED for Simulation for Emergency Management Conference,
April 11-14, 1994, San Diego.

Emergency Management Technical Activity

To show the quality of papers being presented to the Simulation
for Emergency Management Conference, I would like to give a synopsis
of some of the papers.

In one paper, two persons describe a system to aid in building
operation. The system allows person to simulate the air quality in a
building when an emergency condition exist. Due to this simulation,
the building can be modified to improve the air quality in emergen-

In another paper, 3 persons describe how a simulation can help
improve the effectiveness of relief efforts. With this simulation, the
authors have been able to identify the time, place, and conditions.
Thus, the simulations can be used to make recommendations.

In yet another paper, 1 person describes a method on how to make
emergency management simulations more accurate. With this technique,
the simulation can better model the actual environment.

In these descriptions, there are 6 persons involved in three differ-
ent areas of Simulation for Emergency Management. The first paper
concentrated on a resource. The second paper mentioned concentrated on
a area. Lastly, the third paper mentioned concentrated on a system.

Therefore, simulation for Emergency Management is a big field and
needs everyone who can help. If you would like to submit a paper or
attend the April 11-14, 1994 conference in San Diego please write to:

Please note -- I am relaying information that I have recived on a
professional basis. I am not affiliated with the companies mentioned.

Recently, I have received a flyer from Powersim(tm) about its
dynamic modeling and simulation package that is available for 386 with
MS-Windows. The program is designed to work in management, industry,
ecology/environment, science, and education and training. To find out
more about the program contact: Powersim AS, P.O. Box 42, N-4871

Also, I have received from Elsevier publishing, an announcement
for a new journal. The journal is entitled "Computer Science" which
