Why You Should Attend This Symposium:

This year's SOF & Worldwide Operations Symposium will provide a 'Town Hall' style forum to explore initiatives to reorient the SOF enterprise, prioritize information operations, modernize critical information and data capabilities, develop and field critical technologies for the future fight, strengthen cooperation with allies and partners, and highlight capability requirements and acquisition priorities. Attendees at the 11th Annal SOF and Worldwide Operations Symposium will have the unique opportunity to examine the current and future technologies, strategies, and policies designed toward resilient and advanced capabilities for the Operator to effectively control the information space and maintain a competitive advantage.

Rapid shifts to the global security environment are presenting substantial new challenges to the U.S. military as adversaries have found ways to compete in the gray zone and actively employ irregular warfare campaigns. Attendees at the 11th Annual SOF and Worldwide Operations Symposium will have the unique opportunity to examine the current and future technologies, strategies, and policies designed toward resilient and advanced capabilities for the Operator to effectively control the information space and maintain a competitive advantage. This year's Symposium will feature a panel to discuss the challenges of controlling the information space, the implementation of emerging tech and advanced capabilities, and how to advance SOF priorities and facilitate continued mission success through information operations. Another panel will feature SOF AT&L efforts to acquire and deliver critical advanced technologies to ensure continued operational and mission success for the future SOF operator. Join us at this year's Symposium to learn and discuss the opportunities and challenges facing the special operation forces community as the DoD, government, IC, industry, and academia work together to enable the SOF Operator with maximum strategic and competitive advantage.
