For 20 years, the DoDIIS Worldwide Conference has served as the premier information technology conference to hear from distinguished speakers, collaborate with trusted partners, and experience ground-breaking technical solutions to support the warfighter. The conference is an immersive in-person event designed to bring together leading subject matter experts, decision makers, and stakeholders to forge relationships. Portland’s Oregon Convention Center is located in the heart of this dynamic city – on the banks of the Willamette River and a short drive from the Portland International Airport. The convention center is conveniently located within walking distance to several hotels, restaurants, shops, and cultural attractions. We look forward to seeing you this December in beautiful Portland, Oregon!

“We must accelerate and expand our partnerships across organizations and among allies around the world to capture the inspiration and innovation that is nurtured there.”
“It's about giving us world-class capability, to be able to make sure our forces are able to do what they have to do against a world-class pacing challenge, anyone who seeks to do harm to this country."
“Today NGA, along with our partners across the DoD and IC, our allies, those whom we collaborate with in industry and academia, and our decision-makers impacting our policy – and on the battlefield – we are all grateful that you are here this week to help bring us to where we need to get tomorrow."
“You gotta have a plan, and you got to be thinking two, three, four steps ahead to be successful - but it's moving those pieces and do we have the right training and expertise and the right abilities - to move those chess pieces to put the advantage always on our side. You can't do that without allies and partners. You can't do that without jointness. And you can't do that without the folks in this room to include academia, to include industry"
