Projects with US PACOM on determining the requirements for modeling Operations Other Than War (OOTW) and concepts for modeling OOTW led to a joint PACOM / OASD - SO/LIC conference on predicting national instabilities that might lead to OOTW.


A large number of researchers in the various fields that might support predicting national instabilities gathered and presented concepts for this prediction.  These concepts included many mathematical methodologies, along with data to support their utility.
