Don't be left out in the cold...early registration ends Monday 26 February for DTIC's 2007 Conference. "Defense Information for All" is the theme for this year's conference, which will be March 26-28 (Monday-Wednesday) at the Hilton Alexandria Old Town, Alexandria, Va. The first day of the conference opens with an address by Ms. Debra M. Filippi, the Information Sharing Executive for the DoD Chief Information Officer. Ms. Filippi is the DoD point person responsible for implementing an executive order protecting Americans by strengthening how terrorism information is shared. Monday's schedule also includes plenary sessions examining the DoD Research and Engineering (R&E) Portal, the Defense Science and Technology Advisory Group (DSTAG) and information security. Open source will be a hot topic this year with a keynote address, on day two, by Mr. Eliot A. Jardines, Assistant Deputy Director of National Intelligence for Open Source. Other sessions that day will examine the management and handling of proprietary information within DoD, evolving legal developments in the areas of information assurance and information sharing, and the policy and process for the clearance of DoD information intended for public release. The final day of DTIC 2007 will feature Ms. Lin Ezell, Director, National Museum of the Marine Corps, as the luncheon speaker. Also on day three, everything you need to know (but perhaps didn't know who to ask) about DTIC's operations, services and benefits will be showcased, including a DTIC update, searching DTIC's Scientific and Technical Information Network (STINET), topics in information collection and unveiling the newly revised STINET Handbook. DTIC 2007 will also feature a number of government and commercial exhibitors demonstrating and discussing the latest information services and technology.
