Virtual Meetings

Presented by Tom Starai, Chair of IEEE Computer Society Wash/NoVa chapter

Many organizations, companies and government agencies are utilizing virtual technology for meetings in 3D, immersive training and simulations.  The speaker will present the virtual venue, being pursued by the IEEE Computer Society in Second Life,  that can and will bring these benefits to a global audience with greater convenience for next generation technical presentations.  The environment, plans, advantage and potential of this technology will be discussed and, if possible, demonstrated.  If time allows, we can discuss other players, apparent opportunity, roadmaps and ongoing projects.

Tom Starai is an IEEE senior member with an M.S. in engineering and over 35 years of professional experience.  He is currently chair of the IEEE Computer Society Wash/NoVa chapter, Region 2 coordinator for the Computer Society and Region 2 chair for electronic communications.   He is also a member of the communications society, standards association, learning technology standards committee and is the chief engineer for the Navy Information Operations Command.
