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 contact us to inquire about attending as a press representative.
