The inaugural Homeland Defense Academic Symposium will be held virtually from Dec. 1-3, 2020. It will feature briefings, panel discussions, moderated paper presentations, keynote speakers, and a tabletop exercise focused on homeland defense issues at the unclassified level.
Academic and industry representatives from the United States and Canada are invited to attend. Registration is open, and will remain open until Nov. 24. Participants will gain insight into the NORAD and USNORTHCOM unique missions, capabilities and requirements, and be able to incorporate the most up-to-date information about the commands into their curriculums as appropriate. Symposium content includes research submissions from the 2019 call for proposals or abstracts from North American academics (United States and Canada) in subject areas relevant to NORAD and USNORTHCOM missions, operations and procedures.
