Exhibitor registration is now open for the 2019 Pacific Information Operations Symposium. This event is set to take place once again at the Hale Koa Hotel, Honolulu, HI from September 10th - September 12th, 2019 (exhibits days will be September 10th & September 11th).
For the most up to date information please visit the official AOC website at: http://www.fbcinc.com/aocpacific The 2019 Pacific Information Operations Symposium is co-sponsored with United States Indo-Pacific Command (USINDOPACOM), which conducts additional meetings, presentations, and workshops that together with the AOC Pacific Conference comprise the Pacific IO Symposium. This annual event is USINDOPACOM's only professional development, international engagement, and operational problem-solving event focused on the Information Related Capabilities that comprise Joint IO. The theme this year will be "Countering Coercion: The Role of Information Operations."
The purpose of the symposium is to bring together government, military, industry, academia, small business and other stakeholders for discussions on the operational challenges facing the practitioners of these IRCs, and to explore possible technological and tactics/procedural solutions. To stimulate wider interest and inquiry into these issues, the symposium and related activities and events will be open to registration by government, industry and academia representatives without regard to their AOC membership status (both AOC Members and non-members may register) except that access of foreign and any other persons may be restricted as necessary in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
The symposium agenda will focus on the role of information operations in maintaining the conditions for continued peace and stability within the region and will feature presentations and panels from senior U.S. Department of Defense leaders. More than 250 attendees participated at this event last year.
