Message from the MORS President on Human Behavior and Performance 

Our big event every year is our annual symposium and next year it will be held from 22-24 June 2010 at the Marine Corps Combat Development Command in Quantico, VA. This is where we have over 1000 scientists, operators, engineers and analysts meet to present their completed work, discuss work-in-progress, or discuss ideas for work in over 30 different working groups. This year we have taken a detailed look at our working group structure to ensure it is in line with current national security objectives. As the MORS President, I approved the splitting the “Warfighting Performance and Social Sciences” working group into two groups: the Social Sciences Methods and Applications Working Group and, new this year, the Human Behavior and Performance Focus Session.
