Abstract: Based on 12 scientific references reviewing the literature on modeling and simulation (M&S) for critical infrastructure interdependency (CII) assessment, this meta-review identifies means to characterize CII M&S models. The reviews are analyzed with the aim of identifying and formalizing the elements of description used by the authors. CII M&S model classification, criteria of description and best approaches, are the main outcomes generally provided by these reviews. However, these three elements vary amongst the reviews. This paper presents a template in order to describe and analyze CII M&S models in a consistent and standardized manner. It suggests a list of 11 categories of criteria and 25 sub-criteria for characterizing a CII M&S model. An example illustrates that the grid is easily applicable and helps making a CII M&S model quickly understandable.
