Common Input Generators

For purposes of generating common parameters for the larger CISNET simulation models, a series of smaller, focused models was created in collaboration between the CISNET consortium members and NCI. These parameter generators are "mini models" in themselves in that they involve input data, processing guided by assumptions, and produce results. While the results from these input parameter generators are not the goal of a given joint simulation, these mini-models are used to ensure all collaborators are operating from the same base set of assumptions with respect to certain input parameters.
