Industry Call for Papers

The 2018 DoDIIS Worldwide Conference, being held from 12-15 August in Omaha, Nebraska, is NOW ACCEPTING a Call for Papers from all industry participants wishing to be considered for breakout presentations. If you would like to submit a proposal, please complete the online submission form. If you have any difficulty submitting the form, please contact Ann Marie Nixon at or 443-561-2404. The Call for Papers will remain open until close of business on Friday, 27 April 2018.

The theme for this year’s conference is Data as a Weapons System: Revolutionizing Intelligence. Presentation selection decisions will be based on alignment to the conference theme and the perceived value that topical material will bring to this year’s conference. For decision-making purposes, the submitted short description is used in a blind review process.

Keep in mind when you are submitting and/or are selected to lead a breakout session: SALES PITCHES, product endorsements or any other type of self-promotion is unacceptable. Breakout sessions serve as opportunities for industry to showcase innovative and novel approaches to solve our most challenging issues. Any company who uses DoDIIS breakout sessions as a platform to sell a product or service will be barred from participating in the future.

All submitters will be notified if they have been accepted no later than the last week of May 2018.

Please note, submission of this form does not confirm you will be speaking at the conference. You will be contacted if your subject matter and expertise is a good match for the agenda. Speaking opportunities are voluntary. You will not be paid or reimbursed for any travel/lodging and will be required to pay a reduced conference fee of $199.00 if selected to speak.
