national symposium 2017 box graphicThe IJIS Institute’s National Symposium is the premier event on information sharing & safeguarding (IS&S) for justice, public safety, and homeland security. The National Symposium focuses on national priority initiatives and brings together industry, non-profit, academia, and government leaders to network and collaborate in a non-sales environment. It offers the unique opportunity to hear first-hand from state and local government officials and Federal government leaders.

The 2017 National Symposium will offer three technology tracks.  They are:

  • National Information Sharing & Safeguarding Priorities: This track will deal with significant challenges facing justice, public safety and homeland security, most especially the needs of cross-boundary information sharing, an example of which is justice to/from human services information sharing.
  • Next Generation Technology Initiatives: This track will include discussions about initiatives that help agencies keep pace with acceleration of technology and the move to digital services.
  • Smart / Safe Cities:  This track will present perspectives on the alignment of public policy, the advancement of technology, and the coordination of services to citizens.

The 2017 National Symposium will be held from March 1-3, 2017*, at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia.  *Note the date change due to the Presidential Inauguration.

Media/Press Attendance

The objective of the IJIS Institute events are to provide collaborative forums where government and industry executives may engage in a frank and candid exchange on issues of topical importance to the justice, public safety, and homeland security IT community. Reporters and attendees are asked to not attribute any statement to any individual speaker or participants in any recordings, documentation, or social media for dissemination beyond the session without the associated speaker's permission. If the participant does not consent, we ask all reporters and attendees to honor a non-attribution policy to preserve the events as open forums for meaningful exchanges between government and industry. Media outlets are granted one complimentary conference registration per publication genre. Please contact Martha Hill at 703.726.4483 or martha.hill@ijis.org to inquire about attending as a press representative.
