The 2013* Conference, April 13-17, 2014

This month’s column is a short one since I’m attending GEOINT 2013* in Tampa. The asterisk on 2013 is a way for USGIF to save a few bucks by not reprinting banners, displays and handouts for the 2014 date. In talking to the USGIF staff, I learned this will be the only symposium for the year, with the next GEOINT Symposium being held in the spring of 2015. The location will be announced soon.

For your information, this is the latest list of keynote speakers:

  • The Honorable James R. Clapper, Director of National Intelligence (DNI)
  • LTG Michael T. Flynn, U.S. Army, Director, Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)
  • Ms. Letitia A. Long, Director, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA)
  • ADM William H. McRaven, U.S. Navy, Commander, U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM)
  • Ms. Betty J. Sapp, Director, National Reconnaissance Office (NRO)
  • Mr. Robert Scoble & Mr. Shel Israel, Co-Authors, “Age of Context”

While attending next week, I’m going to shoot video clips and write blogs that will be posted to this publication. If you’re attending GEOINT and see me (bald head, easy to spot), please stop me and say hello.

If you won’t be able to attend and need eyes on a particular presentation or exhibitor, please contact me.  I’ll try my best to sit in on the session and take notes, or visit an exhibitor’s booth to get the information you need. I may shoot a video clip, or at least give you my impression of the session or booth.
