IT²EC, the international forum for the military simulation, training and education community, is pleased to announce that the 2020 conference theme has been finalised.
In line with its transformation into the International Training Technology Exhibition & Conference (IT²EC), the 2020 event will present a unique overview of the industry’s latest innovations and future requirements. In particular, the conference will address concepts of joint military and civil operations to strengthen resistance to modern security threats, and the role that training, education and technology play in delivering advanced capabilities for joint operations.
The three-day conference will feature sessions organised into three concurrent streams around an overarching theme of ‘the Digital Twin Age’. Each track will deliver an impressive line-up of speakers and diverse content. They will explore new interoperability designs in a socio-technical system within the Real-Simulation-Real cycle.
The conference will be opened on the morning of 28 April by Rusmat Ahmed, 2020 Committee Chair and Senior Vice President Sales, EMEA, Bohemia Interactive Simulations.
“We are opening the door to radically new ways of thinking about military training and simulation. The ways we discuss, practice and deliver these capabilities to the armed forces around the world is being driven by advancements in technology that would have been deemed impossible even a few years ago, but that people are using in their everyday lives,” Ahmed commented. “We are at the beginning of revolutionary times in simulation and training, and this is reflected by the addition of ‘Technology’ in IT²EC’s updated identity.
“The quality of the papers we have received back from thought-leaders around the world in their respective fields fills me with confidence not only that our collective community is pushing forward into the Digital Twin Age, but that the IT²EC conference remains a vital part of delivering these capabilities into the hands of our military personnel.”
