KSCO Expo Area in Second Life

We have established a (largely empty) KSCO building space on the VCE region in Second Life... alongside the WoSCR facility, and offices used by the Cyber unit from the State of Virginia (VOICCE) and the US Army Research Labs, etc.

It can be reached via this URL (get an avatar in Second Life first): http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/VCE/193/233/23


Plenty of space  if we want to rig up an Exposition, etc.  We likely will use the more actively supported I-Rooms and amphitheatre on the VCE region for meetings and workshops.

P.S. if you want to reduce mailings from the KSCO Group on OpenVCE.net look at your own profile, and the notifications area, and you can choose the frequency of mailings from seeing each individual every one to a digest for a time period up to a week long.  Change that anytime it gets too heavy.

KSCO Community to use OpenVCE.net and related web 2.0 tools

The KSCO community at the KSCO-2010 meeting in Vancouver agreed to try to make use of web collaboration tools and social media in it's work and preparations for KSCO-2012.

In particular initially the OpenVCE.net KSCO community area at http://openvce.net/ksco will be used to ease management of the KSCO mailing list (currently using a mailing list manager with relatively manual updates) and help users self manage their subscriptions to the list and the ways in which they receive notifications. OpenVCE.net includes links to a community Wiki (based on MediaWiki as used in Wikipedia) for improved sharing of community knowledge , and the area can link to event management, status feeds such as via Twitter, media for images and videos, and even provides links for teleconferencing support via Abobe Connect and virtual world based 3D meeting spaces.

Note that most content for the KSCO area on OpenVCE.net can be read without login, but only members can post messages, add Wiki content and receive notifications of updates.

For better context awareness within the community, the Twitter tag #ksco will be used, so add that search to your own timeline.

In the next few months a couple of mailings to the KSCO mailing list will be made explaining the use of the new facilities, as we wind down use of the old mailing list. We encourage all involved with KSCO to join in the new area by registering at http://openvce.net

KSCO-2012 set for February 2012 in Pensacola Florida

Knowledge Systems for Coalition Operations 2012 will be held in Pensacola, Florida in February 2012 with preparatory working groups meeting (it is hoped usinfg OpenVCE.net facilities) to prepare some theme areas in mid 2011. Proposals for the themes will be solicited.

Niranjan Suri and Jeff Bradshaw at IHMC will be local chairs, with James Lawton of EOARD the Program Chair as for recent KSCO events.

The KSCO working group will again assist with organisation. IHMC was due to host the KSCO-2004 event, which had to be cancelled following the damage done by Hurricane Ivan to the Pensacola area and IHMC facilities. The 2012 event is being set well out of the traditional hurricane season!
