The Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) is the world’s largest modeling, simulation, and training conference.
Scheduled from Monday 26 to Friday 30 November 2018, I/ITSEC is held in Orlando, Florida, USA, and consists of peer-reviewed paper presentations, tutorials, special events, professional workshops, a commercial exhibit hall, a serious games competition, and STEM events for teachers and secondary students.
I/ITSEC is organized by the National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA), which promotes international and interdisciplinary cooperation within the fields of modeling and simulation (M&S), training, education, analysis, and related disciplines at this annual meeting. The NTSA is an affiliate subsidiary of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA). Hence, I/ITSEC also emphasizes themes related to defense and security.
Each year I/ITSEC hosts a series of special events that reflect topical areas in the world of Modeling, Simulation and Training. From looking into the future of medical simulation to seeing what Hollywood’s most cutting edge effects wizards can bring to the industry, I/ITSEC’s Special Events are always innovative and informative.
The I/ITSEC Special Events are divided into four general categories:
- Signature Events: Must-see “Flag Level” type events such as the Congressional Panel, General/Flag Officers Panel
- Focus Events: High interest panels and speakers
- Community of Interest: Smaller audience, tightly focused
- Program Briefs: Briefs from the Services for ongoing programs
