I-PIRATES: Setting up New Projects

This meeting is devoted to establish a summit for experts interested in driving M&S developments; I-PIRATES goal is to bring together subjects interested in establishing new joint projects and initiatives for business and R&D in simulation. For this reason this International Workshop is organized currently on specific proposed lines such as: Simulation Security and Intelligence, Next Generation in M&S Technologies, Simulation Professional Education. Final goal is to setup some joint project proposals; for achieving this results, it was decided to organize a work meeting point in the relaxing framework of Caribbean Islands with a timing that perfectly matches with two major classical simulation events:
  • I/ITSEC, Nov 28 - Dec 1, 2005, Orlando, FL
  • Wintersim, Dec 4-7, 2005, Orlando, FL

  • So just in case you plan to be in Orlando next december, we will welcome you in Bequia (easy flight connection from Florida) for setting up new opportunities and business in M&S.
