This paper addresses the broad topic area of cross-paradigm simulation modeling with a focus on the dis-crete-event, system dynamics and agent-based paradigms. It incorporates contributions from four panel members with diverse perspectives and areas of expertise. First, each paradigm is described and defini-tions are presented. The difference between the process-oriented worldview and the event-oriented worldview within discrete-event simulation modeling, and the importance of this difference for cross-paradigm modeling, are discussed. Following the definitions, discussion of cross-paradigm modeling is given for each pair of these paradigms, highlighting current challenges and early successes in these areas. The basic time-advance mechanisms used in simulation modeling are also discussed, and the implications of these mechanisms for each paradigm is explored.
