February 10 – 14, 2020
The Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) invites you to participate in the 2020 Simulation Innovation Workshop (SIW) at the Florida Hotel and Conference Center in Orlando, Florida, February 10 - 14, 2020.
They cordially invite you to submit an abstract centered on Modeling & Simulation (M&S), M&S standards, or a supporting concept or capability that impacts or enhances the development and use of M&S. An abstract can be either for a presentation with an accompanying paper, or for only a presentation. Presentations that have an accompanying paper will be given preference.
SISO encourages the presenters and SIW attendees to discuss and debate in the interactive presentation sessions to encourage innovation, collaboration and simulation standards development. A closing session for the entire SIW will highlight key takeaways.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
Abstracts are encouraged that address the full range of M&S topic areas including the following:
Cloud Based Simulation / Simulation as a Service
Innovative M&S Applications (Non-DoD, C2, Humanitarian Support, IoT, etc.)
Innovative Training Simulation Applications (LVC, VR/AR, etc.)
Integrating Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning into M&S Environments
Addressing the Challenges of Unmanned/Autonomous Systems through M&S
M&S Environments for Agile Development / Rapid Prototyping
Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) / Digital Engineering Applications
Modeling Humans (Medical, Behavioral, etc.)
Cyber Representations and Cyber Physical System Simulation
Reuse of M&S Assets (Repositories, Metadata, Composability, Transformation, etc.)
Transforming Legacy Systems/Software
Verification, Validation and Accreditation
Please submit your abstract via the 2020 SIW website. Your submitted abstract will be evaluated to ensure proper fit for the workshop. When submitting your abstract, please identify if a paper submission is also anticipated.
Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to develop and submit a presentation, and, if they choose, a paper.

The SISO community has been fostering innovation and interoperability since the early 1990s. Today, the technology landscape in front of us provides an even greater opportunity for the application of simulations and enabling standards. Our workshops provide an opportunity to share and build toward the future. If you are a developer, engineer, program manager, user, or visionary, then SIW is the place to be!
SISO’s vision is to be on the leading edge of innovation, and our mission is to stay dedicated to the promotion of interoperability and reuse of models, simulations, and associated data. Our SIW event offers a great venue for you to connect with other professionals and collaborate on ideas that will forge the future. Come join us and consider sharing information about your innovations and interoperability experiences.
Please visit the SISO website for more information on SISO.
We hope very much to see you at the 2020 SIW. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about the SIW or SISO.
