For the Authors

Note to Authors...
Many of us work closely on a daily basis with our customers as members of integrated teams. Even so, we sometimes overlook the significant contributions of our government customers to our successes, including those that we proudly describe in our SIW papers. As you make plans to submit your abstracts and papers to SIW, please ask yourself whether you might have overlooked your customer's contributions and whether they would appreciate participating in writing and presenting the paper.

Training Courses
SISO University (SISO U) is a training program aimed at M&S practitioners, which offers various levels of M&S courses to SISO members. This program spans multiple SIWs (not every tutorial will be offered at every workshop) to help SISO members develop a persistent body of knowledge. The courses are split into three levels: 100 - Overview, 200 - Deep Dive, and 300 - Hands On Training. Courses are divided into 1.5 hour blocks, and may be offered throughout the week.

Those interested in obtaining Continuing Education credit for their participation may order a certificate when registering for a workshop. One certificate for 2.0 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be granted per SIW.

NOTE:  $75.00 Registration fee - (Note:  1 fee allows you to attend multiple tutorials)
