Several international working groups develop, evaluate, and harmonize guidelines and a "best practice" for Verification, Validation, and Accreditation (VV&A) with the objective to define common guidelines and standards for VV&A. These working groups include (1) The NATO Modeling and Simulation Group 019, Task Group 016, "Verification, Validation, and Accreditation of Federations"; (2) The International Test Operations Procedure (ITOP) Working Group of Experts (WGE) 7.2 "Verification and Validation"; (3) The Western European Armament Group THALES Joint Program 11.20, "A Common Verification, Validation, and Accreditation Framework for Simulations" (WEAG THALES JP11.20); and (4) The Simulation Interoperability Standardization Organization (SISO) Product Development Group (PDG) "Verification, Validation, and Accreditation of Federations". Although focusing on different aspects of VV&A, these working groups have numerous related topics and areas of interest, which were discussed during the Combined Convention of International VV&A Standardization Endeavors, October 20-23, 2004, Munich. With the above working groups presenting the current state of their work, the convention attracted audience not only from the "VV&A community", but also model developers and program managers. This paper presents the outcomes of the convention, the commonalities and differences of the individual working groups, and a common future perspective on VV&A.
