Computational modeling in Okinawa

I have just arrived at Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology to participate in Winter School on Computational Modeling in Biology - Data and model sharing by SBML and insilicoML. I expect it will be a hugely advantageous learning experience, and that attending the program will increase my bargaining power enormously. I've never been to Okinawa before, but I must say it's really nice here. I have a room with a ocean view, but absolutely no time to go outside at all for the four days I am here.

The school will present and train participants in these technologies:
SMBL - a markup language for describing systems biology models
SBGN - visualizing biological and models
insilicoML - XML based language for describing hierarchy and modularity of physiological functions in multiple levels
insilicoIDE - model editor working in conjunction with insilicoML
CellDesigner - biochemical networks modeling

What does this all mean? I'm not quite sure, but I just might tell you when I find out.
