Human Geography 2013
Advancing Human Intelligence Integration for GEOINT and the IC

6 May, 2013 - 8 May, 2013, Arlington, VA, United States

With an annual operating budget of $18 billion, DoD Military Intelligence programs have been instrumental in the war on terror.  Human Geography has been at the forefront of these intelligence programs, often embodied in the Human Terrain Systems program which, with successful implementation, have recently increased from 22-31 operating teams in Afghanistan.  In order for the US Military to operate in theatres where conventional warfare is not effective, Human Geography must be readily understood and utilized.

In advancing Human Geography, we must look to increased socio-cultural and language training to provide accurate and reliable data generated by on-the-ground research on the specific social groups in the supported unit’s operating environment. Human Geography 2013 will provide an insightful opportunity to gain a glimpse into these elements in the newest and most exciting advancement in warfare.

Human Geography 2013, will directly highlight these topics through expert presentations from the CENTCOM, USMC Center for Irregular Warfare and the Air Force Culture and Language Center and as well as many other key players in the field.  This year’s summit takes places at an interesting and innovative time in the implementation of human geography into the Intelligence Community and Special Operations Warfare.  In order to further explore these new and exciting advancements in the future of warfare you must attend this year’s premier Human Geography event.
