SESAM to Host SimGHOSTS 2017 Track for June Paris Meeting -- Abstracts due March 1st!


Exciting news for those who operate simulation technology in Europe! SESAM has partnered with SimGHOSTS to offer a special "simulation technology" track at their 2017 annual meeting, taking place in Paris June 14-16th! The agreement allows for several international SimGHOSTS leaders to attend the event to support the growing population of simulation champions who are operating simulation technologies in the EU, UK and beyond! 

Centre Universitaire des Saints-Pères
June 14 - 16, 2017

Abstract Submission Due: March 1st
Early-Bird Registration (Discount for SimGHOSTS Track Only) Ends: April 31st

While normal registration will allow for all SESAM attendees to join the SimGHOSTS track, there will also be a discounted SimGHOSTS-Track only registration as a way to support those interested ONLY in the technical and keynote address content of the show. SimGHOSTS-track only registrations will not provide access to other SESAM sessions which focus on non-technical simulation content.

Who Should Attend the SimGHOSTS Track at SESAM?

Anyone responsible for the technical operation of a medical simulation lab including full-time or part-time Sim Techs, or clinical educators tasked with operating the day-to-day of simulation spaces. As well, anyone evaluating medical-simulation based technology should strongly consider attending as most major industry vendors will be attending.

The full SESAM registration will be better suited for clinical educators or researchers specifically looking to learn how to teach with medical simulation. 

Administrators of simulation programs should also consider sending their institution's AV and IT related staff members who are responsible for supporting the simulation program. In our most recent events, staff from AV and IT departments outside of the healthcare simulation program found immense benefit from participating in SimGHOSTS to better understand the needs of their institution's simulation program!

SimGHOSTS events provide hands-on training workshops, special pre-symposium courses and podium presentations in:

  • Manikin Programming & Hardware Repair
  • A/V System Design, Integration and Consolidation
  • IT Networking & Debugging
  • Trauma & Suturing Moulage Makeup
  • Video Production & Editing Techniques
  • Team Communication & Leadership
  • Medical Pharmacology for Scenarios
  • Career Development & Staff Management
  • Much much more!

We apologize for the delay in this announcement but the development of this unique experience was accomplished just last week at IMSH 2017! There is still plenty of time to submit an abstract to the special SimGHOSTS tracks at SESAM 2017 Paris!

Our friends at ASPIH UK will also be attending the event and will be supporting the SimGHOSTS content track, as a way to help expand the conversation between the UK and EU simulation technology operating communities.

How to Submit an Abstract

Submit an abstract to the SimGHOSTS-track at SESAM through the SESAM web portal here.
