”The future arrives to some when least expected but to those with forsight, with acalades.”
 
Remember the holodecks from the television series “Star Trek:The Next Generation”?  The holodeck was an enclosed room in which objects  and people are simulated in a virtual world.  This technology is now being replicated (approximated) not just on news stations such as CNN and The Weather Channel but is also making appearances in internet applications and virtual online databases. 
 
This session will prepare you for developing best practices in the 3D library, knowledge management and analytical interfaces when they revolutionize the user experience.
 
Soon powerful artifact relational databases, interfacing with engaging 3D models, will provide an immersive “holodeck-like” experience on desktops. Federal systems will drive the development and lead in the design and opportunities to participate in the design of these systems are emerging. This discussion will take a conceptual tour of what is being considered for development and explore ideas from attendees.
