National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA) is happy to announce a new virtual event called vIITSEC, taking place November 30 - December 4, 2020. The conference theme, “The Future is Now,” could not be more appropriate.

NTSA is developing an online platform that will enable the training and simulation community to gather in support of developing new training and education systems that will support warfighters, first responders, and our National Security.

“It is clear to me that warfighters are not getting a year off, so neither could the I/ITSEC mission,” said RADM James Robb, NTSA’s president. I/ITSEC 2020 was canceled for safety concerns amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’re especially excited that an online format will provide a rich environment for the I/ITSEC community to network, present research, provide professional education and development opportunities, discuss requirements, and demonstrate cutting-edge concepts and technologies,” Robb said. “It is also a unique opportunity for new participants here in the US and from around the world.” 

The new event will include a full conference suite of technical papers, tutorials, and special events. We are also constructing a virtual exhibit hall where industry can demonstrate and communicate with the training, simulation, and education enterprise.

vIITSEC is in development and information on the new format, registration, and exhibit and sponsorship opportunities will be available in upcoming weeks. Check vIITSEC.org for continued updates. Media advisories will follow, and registration is required for all vIITSEC participants.
