The objective of the present document is to describe the criteria to be considered in selecting scenarios deemed to be appropriate for the Technical Investment Fund IMAGE. Five selection criteria were identified to be critical: completeness, complexity, relevance, feasibility, and innovation demonstrator. To be considered complete, an IMAGE scenario must include a suitable description, the presence of relevant metrics, an explicit intent, and sufficient background material. To be of adequate complexity, the nature of the interactions, the situation dynamics and the uncertainty present in the scenarios should show characteristics of a complex situation. To be relevant to the CAF, the scenarios should be related to CAF issues, be realistic with regard to CAF operations and involve cooperative users. The feasibility of the scenarios is defined by the quality and maturity of the material, and the ability to implement it in IMAGE. The innovation demonstrator is the capacity of the scenarios to demonstrate the plus-value of the proposed technical tools in IMAGE, namely the simulation, exploration and knowledge representation concepts. An evaluation grid is proposed for each of the selection criteria.
