21st Test Instrumentation Workshop: Supporting the Warfighter from Test to Training

The focus of the 2018 ITEA Test and Training Instrumentation Workshop is “Supporting the Warfighter from Test to Training.” As our weapon systems and missions become more advanced, the need for instrumentation begins at the developmental phase of testing and continues through training resulting in the use of more complex support systems and methodologies.

This year’s goal is to identify and address those instrumentation and data collection issues and challenges faced by the test and training communities. Please join us at the 2018 ITEA Test and Training Instrumentation Workshop to share your experiences, lessons learned and solutions to the problems we face in today's test and training environments.

Las Vegas is the ideal meeting location for representatives from government, industry and academia to present formal papers and exhibit goods and services that can assist test and training professionals. Home to US Air Force Fighter Weapon’s School and the Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR), Las Vegas is centrally located between the Edwards AFB, USN Combined Tactical Training Range, National Training Center at Ft Irwin, Yuma Proving Grounds, Utah Test and Training Range / Dugway Proving Grounds, USN NAWCWD, WSMR, the USMC Air Ground Combat Center, NASA Dryden, DOE / NNSA, and the Mojave Flight Test Center making this the perfect location for the Services and Industry to address current and future test and training issues.

GUIDELINES FOR PRESENTATIONS AT ITEA EVENTS

Presentations at ITEA events should:

  • Contribute technically sound knowledge in a particular area of test and evaluation;
  • Present new knowledge or experience that has not been published previously; and,
  • Not be commercial, marketing, or “infomercial” in nature.

The presentation’s introductory slide is the only slide that may contain the presenter's company name and/or logo. Presentations that promote specific companies, organizations, products, or services are reserved for the Exhibit Hall or Vendor Track Sessions, and strictly prohibited in PreWorkshop sessions (including tutorials, demonstrations, and other presentations), and the Workshop Plenary and Technical Track sessions.

Tutorials are typically scheduled for either a half-day or full day, should include comprehensive presentations on well-established topics, and may include hands-on exercises on using various software and/or hardware tools. Technical Track Session presentations are shorter than tutorials and usually last 20 minutes, with N additional 10 minutes for questions.

While tutorials go into considerable depth, Technical Track Session presentations give quick holistic overviews of interesting emerging topics with a concentration on fundamentals and projection about the future of these topics.

Poster Presentations, usually displayed in the Exhibit hall, are designed to present Works-inProgress, new ideas, and emerging fields and research topics in test and evaluation. Poster presenters are expected to bring their printed poster and handouts, and to be present during scheduled times for the Poster Presentation session(s). Attendees will browse the posters and directly interact with the presenters. Thus, the poster session is intended to be an informal, conversational forum for new ideas. 


CONTINUING EDUCATION UNITS (CEUs)

Each of the 4-hour Pre-Workshop Tutorials provide 4 contact hours of instruction (4 CEUs) that are directly applicable to your professional development program, including the Certified Test and Evaluation Professional Credential (CTEP).

In addition to the Pre-Workshop Tutorials, the Annual Symposium provides 4 contact hours of instruction (4 CEUs) for each half-day, 8 contact hours of instruction (8 CEUs) for each full-day, or 20 contact hours of instruction (20 CEUs) for attending the full Workshop, that are directly applicable to your professional development program, including the Certified Test and Evaluation Professional
Credential (CTEP).
