September 27– Enabling Training Technologies for JF2020 - Moving the Training Environment into Cloud Computing
As our forces move towards their post-OEF posture, the joint training environment must be compelling and engaging. The Joint Staff J7, Joint and Coalition Warfighting will hold conversations to help identify what Cloud technologies/techniques are available to assist in delivering to multiple (currently 51) worldwide locations. Innovators in development and exploitation of Cloud technology will be invited to present research and lead discussions on commercial standards, security issues, and replicating operational environments. The workshop seeks to examine enabling technologies in the areas of (1) web-based services, (2) security, and (3) emerging technologies and frameworks, to provide an agile training and exercise environment that reflects the complexities and uncertainty of the operating environment and challenges the JF 2020 warfighter.
September 27- ODU VMASC Technology Review and Open House
The Virginia Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Center (VMASC) will open its doors to the community to build relationships and foster increased awareness of the wealth of M&S research and development taking place in Hampton Roads. VMASC will demonstrate modeling and simulation applications in medical and healthcare, defense and regional security, economic development planning and much more.
