This workshop emphasized INCF Node interactions, achievements, and future developments. In addition, there were presentations of INCF advances, such as the INCF products Multisimulation Coordinator (MUSIC), that allows for interoperability between different simulators, and Waxholm Space (WHS), a spatial reference system allowing transformation between different types of digital atlases.
