DISCUSS CRITICAL ISSUES IN THE PACIFIC: Don't Miss the Pacific Theater Air, Sea, Land Battle Concept: IO/EW/Cyber Operations Conference, October 16-18 in Honolulu
The Information Operations Institute and the Association of Old Crows are proud to present this conference on the hottest topic facing the world today and in the future: the Pacific Rim. Sessions include topics on the South China Sea and surrounding waterways of global significance. This international conference brings experts from the U.S., Japan, Korea, and other countries to discuss the issues affecting this area, new concepts of operations (air, sea, land battle concept), with a concentration on programming and budget areas.

The South China Sea is an area of primary concern for many nations. The U.S. DoD is building its air, sea battle concept encompassing not only traditional air and maritime operations but also incorporating the IO/Cyber/EW operations and programming. It is critical that all nations come together to build viable joint concepts and ensure the programming funding is in place to bring the concepts to fruition. Foreseen as an annual event and concentrating on strategic international partnerships, this conference promises to be one that is on the leading edge of future operations in the Pacific Theater.
