At this time we are no longer accepting submissions.  All the submissions have been presented to the USCENTCOM Data Symposium planning committee.  We will be in touch with responses shortly.

Submission Deadline: Friday, December 11, 2020 by 5:00 PM EST.

Completion and submission of this form does not guarantee you a speaking slot at the symposium.  If your topic and expertise are a good match for the agenda, you will be contacted for further information. If you are ultimately chosen, you will be sent relevant speaker information.

Please note that speaking opportunities are voluntary. You will not be paid or reimbursed for any travel/lodging.

Helpful hints when preparing your submission:

  1. If your submission or presentation reads like a sales pitch or overt promotion of your company, products, or services, you will not be selected.
  2. Treat your presentation as an opportunity to give a “Ted Talk” to the audience. Take the opportunity to look ahead and think big.
  3. Be innovative. Present solutions to problems in the operating environment that the government/military have yet to encounter.
  4. Presentations should focus on advanced data topics including analytics, AI, and cloud in austere environments (cloud to the tactical edge.) We are interested in moving data in support of the warfighter in theater operations.
