Parallel computing now delivers simulations in a time scale that could change the paradigm of how scientists, engineers, and other practitioners address discovery and design questions. Tools have been developed to precisely define a specific, complex simulation and then execute them in seconds on computers. However, for discovery and design questions where the next variant of the problem requires change to the problem definition, the time to redefine the problem takes much longer. This delay interrupts intuition and learning about how the change in problem definition relates to a change in solution. To realize this innovative paradigm shift, referred to here as immersive simulation, requires the development of new approaches to problem definition editing that allow practitioners to interact with the simulations in a manner where they can dynamically experience the influence of parameter variations
