Dr. Saurabh Mittal is Lead Systems Engineer/Scientist in the Architecture Analytics Department of the MITRE Corporation in McLean, VA. He is the founder and President of Dunip Technologies, LLC, Virginia. He is Vice President-Memberships and an elected member of the Board of Directors at the Society of Modeling and Simulation, International (SCS), USA and also Associate Editor-in-Chief for Transactions of SCS: SIMULATION. He is Chief Editor for Enterprise Architecture Body of Knowledge (EABOK) Consortium.

He has extensive experience in modeling and simulation-based systems engineering, complex adaptive systems thinking, formal systems M&S, model-based engineering using DEVS and leading associated research endeavors. He contributed to M&S efforts at National Renewable Energy Lab, Department of Energy, Colorado; Link Simulation & Training at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio; Northrop Grumman Information Technology at Defense Information Systems Agency, Ft. Huachuca, Arizona and at the University of Arizona, Tucson.

Dr. Mittal served as General Chair, Vice General Chair, Program Chair and Awards Chair for Spring and Summer Simulation Multi-conferences sponsored by SCS over the 2013-2017 period. He continues to stay involved as Steering Committee member for SCS conferences. He also continues to serve as the founding Track Chair for Symposium/Track on M&S of Intelligent, Adaptive and Autonomous Systems for SCS conferences and the Winter Simulation Conference.

Dr. Mittal received his Ph.D. (2007) in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), with dual minors in Management Information Systems, and Systems and Industrial Engineering, and has M.S. (2003) in ECE from the University of Arizona, Tucson.

Dr. Mittal has contributed over 70 peer-reviewed articles and two books titled Guide to Simulation-based Disciplines: Advancing our Computational Future, Springer (2017) and Netcentric System of Systems Engineering with DEVS Unified Process, CRC Press (2013) that serve the areas of executable architectures, parallel distributed simulation using Service-oriented Architectures, System of Systems engineering using Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF), multiplatform modeling, intelligence-based, complex, adaptive and autonomous systems, and large scale M&S integration and interoperability.

He is a recipient of Outstanding Professional Contribution Award (2017) and Outstanding Service Award (2016) by SCS. He also received the highest civilian Department of Defense (DoD) contractor recognition “Golden Eagle” Award (2006) and Herculean Effort Leadership Award from the University of Arizona (2004).
