Research Library Collection
The university library maintains an extensive collection of IST-published research reports related
to modeling and simulation science. This unique compendium— you can find it here—contains the majority of IST-published and catalogued modeling and simulation documents.
This university library collection is supported in part by generous annual donations from G.
Vincent and Beth Amico. Mr. Amico is a former Director of Engineering and Director of Research for what is now known as NAVAIR TSD,
the NAVAIR Training Systems Division, Orlando,
Florida. He is credited with over half a century's
involvement in the world of simulation and training
and was the first to use a commercial digital
computer in a simulator. Vince is an active Coordinator
of Industrial Affiliates, School of Electrical
Engineering and Computer Science, University
of Central Florida, and a member of the boards
of directors of the National
Center for Simulation and the Institute for
Simulation and Training. Vince Amico in 2004
received an honorary PhD in Modeling and Simulation
IST honored Vince for his contributions, which
made possible construction of a new reading
room to house the research collection. Go here to
read the story. The reading room underwent
yet another refurbishment to make it more
convenient for study, small class sessions,
presentations and other small group gatherings
when IST's larger classrooms are occupied.
In 2006 IST moved the Amico collection to temporary
storage in the Partnership II building, where
the collection awaits further cataloging and
We frequently receive requests for the IST document "IST-CR-03-01," a 2003 document whose full title is "Enumeration and Bit Encoded Values for Use with Protocols for Distributed Interactive Simulation Applications." The document is listed as accompanying IEEE Std 1278.1-1995 and IEEE Std 1278.1A-1998.
Both may be found at the IEEEXplore® Digital Library (subscription required).
IST was not assigned responsibility for updates to IST-CR-03-01 beyond 2003. For information regarding any updates, You may search the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) digital library or contact SISO directly.

The UCF library scanned and
cataloged most of IST's research publication
