This may be of interest to some.  David Gibson used to be at Vermont Institutes and has been involved with this Simschool project for quite some time.  Open Source fans may especially want to apply for this..


SITE conference is a good one, I have attended before … rather academic, but very high quality presentations.

David GibsonCowboys and Aliens in Austin:

I'm happy to announce the first professors responding to simSchool's invitation for support to attend the SITE 2012 conference in Austin. These folks will receive travel support, the workshop fee will be waived AND they will be in a great position to take home an extra $1000 for creating winning open source modules.

There's still plenty of time to act and we have more resources to share, so join us if you can! Registration information is below. Come join your colleagues for a "Cowboys and Aliens" roundup!

We invite you to attend the simSchool workshop at the SITE conference in Austin, Texas. The half-day workshop will be from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm on March 9, the last day of the week-long conference. We will support the first 30 people to register in the following ways:


1. We will reimburse your workshop fee of $65.

2. We will contribute $250 toward your airline and hotel expenses.

3. We will prepare you to submit an outstanding module to the competition for a chance to earn $1000. We plan to award up to 10 module authors!
