This special issue of the journal is based on the best papers from the 2013 annual meeting of the Behavioral Representation in Modeling and Simulation (BRiMS) Society. Over the winder holiday, after 20 papers were accepted for presentation as talks and several more for presentation as posters, disaster struck. The original meeting had to be cancelled because of the loss of a third or more of the accepted papers as a result of the just implemented Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) restrictions on conference attendance. These restrictions curtailed conference funding by regular BRiMS conference sponsors and basically eliminated attendance by regular participants from military laboratories and DoD contractors. With gracious support from our colleagues, the meeting was resurrected as a meeting co-located with the International Conference on Cognitive Modeling being held at Carlton University in Ottawa, Canada in the summer of 2013. The reconstituted meeting included over a dozen scheduled...
