Medical modelling and simulation from I/ITSEC and other NTSA events.

I/ITSEC Conference

I/ITSEC, is the largest exhibition of simulation technology ever held, that will feature cutting-edge medical simulations ranging from mass casualty scenarios to virtual surgery to epidemic prediction and management. It will take place on and from December 1, 2010 to December 4, 2010 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

Sprawling over the equivalent of four football fields of exhibition space, almost 600 exhibitors will participate in this extensive event. The Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC), will attract leading medical researchers, educators and practitioners from around the world.

While simulation technology and related fields such as haptics and robotics are increasingly important to a wide range of health and medical applications, I/ITSEC will also feature the full range of simulation training applications, from natural and man-made disaster scenarios, to weather and other natural phenomena prediction, to military and first responder training, to serious games and cultural and linguistic training. All types of modelling and simulation will be represented live, constructive and virtual, with the latter featuring virtual worlds and totally immersive environments.

Highlighting the medical component of I/ITSEC will be two conferences that will explore the promise and potential of medical modelling and simulation. The first, “Building the Foundation for Medical Modelling and Simulation”, will feature participants from industry, academia and the military. The event will explore how best to weave this powerful new tool into all aspects of medical training and how various professional communities can best work together to determine a road map for 5a8 the future of medical modelling and simulation.

The second conference, “Future Applications of Modelling and Simulation for Medical Education, Training and Care”, will navigate through the human body to show how technology is used to provide training for the military in the contemporary medical operating environment. The “journey” will feature numerous stops along the way, including presentations on physiology modeling, distributed medical training environments, tele-medicine and virtual reality for behavioural health. Finally, the conference will focus on a vision of future medical simulation.
