The Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) has announced that former NASA astronaut, Dr. Story Musgrave, will be a keynote speaker at its annual Simulation Innovation Workshop (SIW) to be held at The Florida Hotel in Orlando, FL, USA on 10-15 September 2017.
Dr. Musgrave was an astronaut for over 30 years, and flew on six spaceflights. As an astronaut, he is probably best remembered as the lead spacewalker for the Hubble Space Telescope repair mission in 1993. He has seven graduate degrees in math, computers, chemistry, medicine, physiology, literature and psychology, and has been a part-time trauma surgeon.

Dr. Musgrave’s keynote will occur during the plenary session on Tuesday, 12 September, from 10:30 am until noon. Following that, there will be a luncheon with Dr. Musgrave (for a separate fee) that will provide a photo opportunity and the ability to purchase an autographed copy of one of Dr. Musgrave’s books.
Registration for the SIW and lodging at The Florida Hotel is now open at: https://www.sisostds.org/2017SIW.aspx. A ticket to the optional luncheon may be purchased on the site as part of the workshop registration process.
