The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and Georgetown University are proudly hosting the George T. Kalaris Intelligence Conference, “The Art and Science of Intelligence” on September 27, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. in Gaston Hall.

The conference will cover a range of national security issues, with a focus on the blend of skills and diverse perspectives required to confront emerging intelligence challenges and opportunities.  Intelligence collection and analysis require deep technical expertise and an understanding of cutting-edge technology trends. Presenting complex intelligence to decision makers also requires creativity. This blend of art and science, of creativity and technical expertise, ensures actionable intelligence is conveyed.

The Kalaris Intelligence Conference aims to connect government, academia, media, and the private sector through an intellectually rich and stimulating lineup of events and discussion about the diverse, and sometimes divergent, skills and perspectives needed in the national security community.  Join us to explore how art and science intersect in intelligence and the different approaches to analyzing and acting on information.

Lunch will be provided for all registered attendees.

An Industry Career Fair will be open to Georgetown students and alumni following the conference, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the Healy Family Student Center. If you are an employer in the national security sector and would like to participate in the career fair, please contact Julia Gaiser.

Registration is now open! Tickets are non-transferable. Attendance for the full day of the conference is not required; students in particular are encouraged to attend even if they will miss portions of the day due to classes.
