Why You Should Attend This Symposium:


The 2023 Symposium will convene leaders and key policymakers across the DoD, Military services, acquisition authorities, industry, & academia for actionable discussions on how the DoD & Military services are advancing their information warfare capabilities to enable decision dominance for the Warfighter to succeed in the modern battlespace. The 5th Annual Information Warfare Symposium will offer attendees in-depth discussions on the implementation of technologies and capabilities to pursue a competitive advantage in both offensive and defensive information operations in support of the Joint Force.

Amid a dynamic global competitive environment, adversaries are highly adaptive and threat environments are increasingly complex. The ability to develop and deliver cyberspace and EW capabilities to equip the Warfighter for the future all-domain fight against resilient, advanced adversaries is critical to mission success. This year’s Summit will explore efforts to synchronize cyberspace planning & operations, develop superior EMS capabilities, effectively control the information space, & field emerging technologies and capabilities to enable an information advantage in support of DoD objectives. The event will also feature a panel of Senior level experts that will discuss the role of information warfare amid rising threats from advanced adversaries. Attendees at the 5th Annual Information Warfare Symposium will have the unique opportunity to examine the current and future technologies and strategies designed toward enabling information superiority for the Joint Force to ensure mission success on the modern battlefield.

DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Symposium’s content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in EW & Cyber from key military and civilian offices. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.

Operating Guidance for Government Attendees:

DSI’s Symposium directly supports DoD priorities by providing a conduit for officials to efficiently reach audiences outside of their respective offices that directly impact their department's mission success, at no charge to the government, and in an efficient expenditure of time.

DSI’s Symposium will provide a forum to address and improve internal and external initiatives, meet with and hear from partner organizations, disseminate vital capability requirements to industry, increase visibility within the larger community, and generally support their mission.

The Symposium is open and complimentary to all DoD, IC, and Federal employees and is considered an educational training forum, and a widely attended gathering.
