Heliospheric models of coronal mass ejection (CME) propagation and evolution provide an important insight into the dynamics of CMEs and are a valuable tool for interpretating interplanetary in situ observations. Moreover, they represent a virtual laboratory for exploring conditions and regions of space that are not conveniently or currently accessible by spacecraft. We summarize our recent advances in modeling the properties and evolution of CMEs in the solar wind. We describe our current state of research with three examples: 1) interpreting the global context of in situ observations; 2) identifying new phenomena in the simulations; and 3) computing geoeffective phenomena. We conclude by discussing what topics will likely be important for models to address in the future.
