The Advanced Technical Intelligence Association TECHINT conference will
be held 9-11 Dec 2008.  This conference focuses on the technical
dimensions of intelligence, and has a theme of “integrated
performance.”  The theme refers to the need to integrate capabilities
from all the agencies engaged in national security to better perform in
meeting our national security challenges.   On 9 Dec I’ll be speaking
at a panel on the real and growing threat in cyber space.  There will
be no blogging or tweeting from the conference.  But if you are going
to be there please drop me a note and lets connect in person there.  
For info see http://masint.org 

The AFCEA Solutions conference on Cyberspace will be held 10-11 Dec
2008 at the Ronald Reagan Center in DC.  This conference will be
focusing on the challenges and solutions of cyberspace related to
national security.  Speakers include Secretary of Homeland Security the
Honorable Michael Chertoff, The Deputy Secretary of Defense the
Honorable Gordon England, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Networks
and Information Integration the Honorable John Grimes, Ms. Melissa
Hathaway, senior adviser and cyber coordination executive for the
Director of National Intelligence, LTG Keith Alexander, Director of the
National Security Agency, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for
Information and Identity Assurance Mr. Bob Lentz and Deputy Assistant
Secretary of Defense for Information Management Mr. David Wennergren. 
I’ll be speaking on a panel on Wednesday at 1530 on formulating a
common response.  

This unclas conference follows a model that AFCEA has been using for
several similar events.  They are actively seeking ways to enhance the
value of these conferences by leveraging more Web2.0 capabilities
before, during and after the formal presentations.  Blogging and
tweeting from the conference is encouraged. You can visit the site at: www.afceasolutions.org/group 
For the event schedule and program details can be found online here: www.afceasolutions.orgThe US Army Intelligence Warfighting Summit will be held 15-17 Dec
2008.  This one will also be a conference where blogging and use of
twitter is not appropriate due to the sensitivity of info discussed. 
However, I would appreciate knowing if you will be going so we can
connect there in person.  Speakers will include the most senior Army
intelligence leadership, plus Vice Admiral Bob Murrett from NGA, LTG
Alexander from NSA, and Scott McNealy from Sun Microsystems.  For more
