The 2021 Florida Simulation Summit, Cybersecurity: Enhancing Reality Through Digital Twin, is October 19 at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC). In its 7th year, the Summit is a collaborative partnership between Orange County Government, the National Center for Simulation (NCS), and the Orlando Economic Partnership, and will be a hybrid event this year, offering both in-person and virtual registration options.

This annual event highlights the strong progress, synergy and development of Central Florida’s multibillion-dollar modeling, simulation and training (MS&T) industry as a showcase to the state, nation and beyond. The industry’s deep roots in the defense sector have diversified into other clusters such as life sciences, healthcare, sports, gaming and engineering.

“The Summit is always an exciting platform to showcase how modeling, simulation, and training is so integrated and used in many other fields outside of the defense industry,” said George Cheros, NCS CEO and president. “This year’s focus is cybersecurity and particularly how the use of a digital twin can simulate scenarios, offering real-time, responsive environments for training, learning and decision-making.”

The day’s events begin at 8 a.m. with registration and networking.  The program kicks off at 9 a.m. with this year’s opening keynote, Jason Ingalls, CEO of Ingalls Information Security. He is followed by two panels, technology and application. The luncheon keynote is Poonacha Machaiah, CEO of The Chopra Foundation. The Summit wraps up with product demonstrations for attendees from 1:45 to 3:45 p.m. The in-person conference is at the Orange County Convention Center, North Concourse, Meeting Room N320, 9400 Universal Blvd., Orlando, Fla., 32819.
