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 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 is currently also serving as the General Chair for Spring Simulation Multi-conference 2017, Virginia Beach,VA.

Dr. Mittal was a scientist and architect at National Renewable Energy Lab, Department of Energy at Golden, CO, where he was responsible for architecting an integrated model for energy system of systems involving High Performance Computing-based model-predictive controllers and a net-centric simulation environment. He also chaired an internal workshop on Computational Challenges in Energy Systems Integration and Grid Modernization.

Dr. Mittal was a scientist at L-3 Communications, Link Simulation & Training, at 711 Human Performance Wing at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio (2010-2014). He developed pilot behavior models and integrated modeling and simulation environments with cognitive and artificial agents in Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) environments. He also developed model-based systems engineering (MBSE) and model-based testing (MBT) approaches using formal discrete event dynamic systems using the DEVS formalism.

Dr. Mittal served as General Chair of SummerSim’15, Vice General Chair for SpringSim’16 and SummerSim’14, and Program Chair for SpringSim’15. He has co-authored over 60 articles in various international conferences and journals, including a book titled Netcentric System of Systems Engineering with DEVS Unified Process, CRC Press in 2013 that serve the areas of executable architectures, parallel distributed simulation, 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.

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 received the highest civilian Department of Defense (DoD) contractor recognition “Golden Eagle” for his contribution to Generic Networked Systems Capable of Planned Expansion (GenetScope) modernization project sponsored by US Air Force and US Navy, as a Northrop Grumman contractor (2006).
