In his influential 1963 paper 'Some Tactical Problems in Digital Simulation', Conway identified important issues that became the pillars of research in simulation analysis methodology. Naturally these 'problems' were a product of the applications of interest at the time, as well as the state of simulation and computing, much of which has changed dramatically. In light of those changes, we attempt to identify the tactical problems that might occupy simulation researchers for the next 10 years.
