This primer and dictionary is an outcome of the Hybrid Simulation Task Force meeting held January 27-28, 2014 in West Lafayette, Indiana. The purpose of this document is to provide users who are new to hybrid simulation with a general introduction of its framework, components, capabilities, and the procedures by which a simulation is typically performed. After reading this document, we anticipate that users new to hybrid simulation will have the fundamentals to plan a simple simulation, and will understand how the physical and computational components work together during the execution of a hybrid simulation. 

This Primer may be extended in various directions based on the needs in the community. If you have request please send us a request and we will do our best to assist.
