"The theme for the 2002 Command and Control Research and Technology Symposium is 'C2 Transformation Through Experimentation.' The topics that stimulated innovative thinking represented by this year's papers include C4ISR [Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance] and Space, C2 Experimentation, Network-Centric Applications, Modeling & Simulation, C2 Decision Making & Cognitive Analysis, C2 Assessment Tools & Metrics, Coalition Interoperability, Information Operations, and IT [Information Technology] Supporting DoD Business Processes. Conference attendees and participants are invited to explore these and other C2 related topics within the context of our theme. We believe that the professional and technical papers presented here address these issues head-on and make a substantial contribution to both the state of the art and the state of the practice of command and control. To enable the broadest range of expert opinions and views, senior members of the government, military, commercial and academic C2 research communities are here to share their vision, insights, and concerns. By synthesizing the expertise of these communities, the CCRP [Command and Control Research Program] hopes to gain significant insights into the operational, developmental, and technical aspects of command and control systems."
