Air Force to Host Information Technology and Cyberpower Conference Virtually in August

The Air Force has announced that it will virtually host the Air Force Information Technology and Cyberpower conference August 24th – 27th. The conference, which is annual, encourages dialogue between the Air Force, academia, and industry with the goal to create strategies for overcoming challenges in a digital world. 

For over three decades, the Air Force has hosted the Air Force Information Technology and Cyberpower conference in Montgomery, Alabama. Although the event will be virtual, the Air Force intends to continue the tradition of bringing together cyberspace and information technology professionals from academia, industry, and government.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Multi Domain Effects: Integrating Data and Digital.” This is a timely theme in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic that is creating a dispersed workforce. It aims to examine the constantly changing ways in which “big data” and cyber technologies are reshaping our lives.

Acting deputy chief information officer, A.G. Hatcher Jr., told Maxwell Air Force Base recently, “Although we are disappointed that we cannot host an in-person conference this year, a virtual conference brings a lot of exciting opportunities.” The content which will include a combination of recorded and live events will be available online for a couple of months. 

Units attending the virtual conference will be able to customize their experience so that they are participating in the keynotes, panels, and breakout sessions that meet their specific needs. 

Exhibitors have a unique opportunity to reach potential clients and network in the virtual event and reach more people in the months following the event. For more information about the Air Force Information Technology and Cyberpower conference, please visit their website.
