Abstract : Based on the research progress and feasibility demonstration in this Phase I effort we conclude: (1) Orders of magnitude speed up of discrete event simulation for the purpose of performance evaluation and optimization of complex systems are possible, especially if parallel processing capabilities are present. (2) A high-level language for discrete event simulation will usher in a new era for simulation leading to increased usability among practitioners and interoperability with other high-level languages such as KQML, etc. (3) Commercial success and market potential of the end product envisioned in this research definitely exist and shall be exploited in the proposed phase II and follow-on effort. Further details on how these conclusions lead to our proposed future research can be found in the Phase II proposal. (KAR) P. 30
