By phone: Call 1-800-588-4656 - (be sure to mention the SISO Simulation Innovation Workshop).  The conference rate is $152 per night (U.S. Per Diem rate) plus a discounted service fee of $13 per night.

This is where all workshop activities will be taking place. We know you have a choice in where you stay when you attend our event; however, staying at our official event hotel helps us meet our contractual obligations for this and future events. This will help us continue to negotiate the best group rates.

Please note that the conference rate and the conference room block is only guaranteed through 5:00 pm on 25 Jan 2019.  Rooms and the room rate after this date will be on a space available basis.


Tracks focus on papers, presentations, and panel discussions addressing interoperability, reuse, data visibility, processes, methodologies, tools, techniques, and issues in various simulation domains and M&S communities. Working Groups focus on developing and supporting SISO products. For a detailed list of the TracksStudy Groups, and Product Development Groups meeting at this workshop, and their specific interest areas and plans, see the corresponding links.

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)
