Abstract : On September 21-28, 1985, a conference was held at Pensacola, Florida, for the purpose of determining a model of simulator-induced motion sickness. A total of 17 scientists, with expertise in areas related to the study of motion sickness and its treatment, were in attendance. The scientists were asked to address a variety of questions which had been previously prepared by the conference conveners, and were individually deposed in a quasi-legal manner in the presence of a court reporter. From theses depositions a set of guidelines and recommendations have been proposed as short-term approaches to limiting the severity of the problem until longer term solutions can be experimentally validated. Keywords: Flight simulators; Simulator sickness, Visual-vestibular asynchrony; Training; Motion sickness.
