Orlando, FL - December 09, 2005 - The Interactive Entertainment Institute announced that the G.A.M.E.S. Synergy Summit 2006, originally planned for January 17-18, 2006, is being postponed until later in the year. The rescheduling is due to the impact of hurricanes Katrina and Wilma as well as unexpected complications with the venue. An announcement regarding the new dates will be forthcoming.

Synergy Summit 2006 the premier cross-disciplinary event bringing together the leaders of the diverse government, academic, military, entertainment and simulation ("G.A.M.E.S.") disciplines and others involved in interactive multimedia applications. The interactions and cross disciplinary dialog facilitated by the Synergy Summit provide the best opportunities to explore and discuss the current issues and future potentials of interactive multimedia applications."
