The CIPRNet project  uses the following definition:
Federation is a collection of interoperating federated simulations. (source: Rathnam, 2004). The federation may include additional components like logging tools, a graphical user interface for controlling the federation, visualisa-tion tools and more.
The DIESIS project  gives the following definition:
"A collection of interoperating federated simulations." 
The federation may include additional components like logging tools, a graphical user interface for controlling the federation, visualisation tools and more.
A set of simulations, a common federation object model, and a supporting Run Time Interface (RTI), that are used together to form a larger model or simulation.
