PROGRAM OVERVIEW

New technologies are coming fast to our workplaces, changing the way we accomplish tasks and prepare to fight future wars. Are these systems fully tested when they’re being integrated into our practices? Are we leveraging the rapidly expanding toolkit to increase the level of complexity in our test and evaluation processes to keep up? Or are we letting the new technology pass us by in favor of what we already know how to execute? Are we learning from commercial partner, military, and academic channels or stove-piped in our immediate area?

Bring us your ideas, software tools, and hardware solutions to testing in contested EMS environments, modernizing the speed and depth of T&E, and making us ready for a near-peer adversary.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Sessions will be unclassified and open to the general T&E community, however, restricted sessions (up to Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI)) may be made available. Abstracts will be reviewed for a presentation during a technical session or as a poster paper. Abstracts accepted for presentation, along with the slides, will be available on the online proceedings for attendees after the Symposium concludes.

Abstracts should be non-commercial in scope, pertinent to conference topic, and no longer than 500 words. Complete the abstract submission form and email to Symposium@itea.orgAbstracts due 1 May 2023.
