REGISTRATION NOW OPEN: 5th Annual AOC Pacific Conference,  November 8-9, Honolulu

Challenges and Opportunities for IO/EW/Cyber in A2/AD Environments

The purpose of the symposium is to bring together government, military, industry, academia, small business and other stakeholders for discussions on the operational challenges facing the practitioners of these IRCs, and to explore possible technological and tactics/procedural solutions. To stimulate wider interest and inquiry into these issues, the symposium and related activities and events will be open to registration by government, industry and academia representatives without regard to their AOC membership status (both AOC members and non-members may register) except that access of foreign and any other persons may be restricted as necessary in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

AOC is soliciting original unclassified English language papers for the 5th Pacific conference from international leaders, military personnel, subject matter experts and leading thinkers from the government, military, academia and industry. Potential Speakers are invited to note the conference sessions topics and specific areas of interest:
  • National perspectives on the IO, EMS and cyber aspects of overcoming A2/AD or countering Hybrid Warfare.
  • Historical perspectives of the application of IO to overcome anti-access strategies and to reach target audiences in denied environments
  • Analysis of current and potential threats to the U.S. and her Pacific Allies employing the integrated application of IRCs (IO) as a component of peacetime Hybrid Warfare
  • Analysis of adversary and potential adversary offensive cyber strategies for peacetime, crisis and conflict
