Joint Information Environment Mission Partner Symposium

"Integrating and Exploiting Technology to Execute the Joint Mission"

May 12-14, 2014

Baltimore, MD

The Joint Information Environment (JIE), under development by the Department of Defense, is at a critical stage of its formation. This centerpiece of the Department’s information sharing and security strategy depends on a matrix of participating organizations to adapt technical solutions and adopt enterprise management in the name of efficiency, security, and reliability. Neither a turnkey solution nor a program of record, JIE intends to serve collective defense and security needs and those partners, government and civilian, who contribute to these missions. A community of partners, linked by commitment to JIE success, need to understand the state of current and future developments in this ‘mission imperative.’ AFCEA International is honored to host an important conversation between these mission partners at its JIE Mission Partner Symposium 2014 at the Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore, Maryland from May 12 to May 14, 2014. Industry will join leaders from the DoD CIO, Defense Information Systems Agency, Joint Chiefs of Staff, CYBERCOM, military services, intelligence community, and other government offices and agencies to address the progress and way ahead for JIE. The operational theme centers on the teamwork, relevant guidance and priorities, and associated perspectives of mission partners united in development of this collective capability.

We have entered an era in which voluminous data is available to national decision-makers, warfighters, intelligence professionals and individual citizens.

The 33rd annual AFCEA Spring Intelligence Symposium will examine the challenges and opportunities associated with transforming the IC’s capabilities for accessing big data and transforming it into knowledge, while also protecting civil liberties and being good stewards of taxpayer resources in a fiscally-constrained environment.

Cycle for STEM 2014

July 13-19, 2014

Pittsburgh, PA to Washington, D.C.

Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education is at the core of national security and economic prosperity worldwide. Student performance in STEM fields must improve for the international economy to soar in the future. Cycle for STEM enables participants—cyclists and support staff alike—to have fun while making a difference in the lives of STEM students and teachers.

Cycle for STEM is the AFCEA Educational Foundation’s signature fundraising event. It is a non-competitive biking adventure that follows the Great Allegheny Passage and C&O Canal Towpath, which are linked together to provide the longest non-motorized hiking/biking trail in the United States.

Individuals who make up the Cycle for STEM community are dedicated to helping the next generation and to each other. Passionate cyclists revel in the challenge of pedaling 335 miles from Pittsburgh, PA, to Washington, D.C. Others prefer the four- or one-day ride. Still others admire the cyclists and put their talents into making sure it’s a smooth ride by providing support all along the route. Their roles may be different, but their goal is the same: Strengthen STEM education in schools and communities.

All Cycle for STEM proceeds help the AFCEA Educational Foundation provide scholarships and grants to deserving STEM students and teachers. In addition, this activity endeavors to elevate community awareness about the importance of STEM education to the nation.
