The WebSim Partnership announced that online registration for its “Second Workshop on Web Enabled Modeling and Simulation” is now available at . The event is scheduled for October 12-15, 2004 at the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington, Virginia. The Object Management Group (OMG), Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO), and Web3D Consortium agreed last year to collaborate on open, non-proprietary standards for Modeling and Simulation (M&S) and related technologies, forming the WebSim Partnership.
Technologies such as the World Wide Web, and Global Grid Computing, and Utility Computing are transforming the way that Modeling and Simulation services are provided to the vast collection of user communities. The workshop will illuminate the current state of the technology and help establish a plan for going forward.
