Knight Conference Center at the Newseum, Washington DC

Cost: $495 until August 1; $595 thereafter.

So, in 2010, we will focus the conference entirely on this topic in a one-day executive symposium at the Newseum in Washington DC.

Defence Geospatial Intelligence (DGI) is Europe's largest and most international annual gathering dedicated to the high-level discussion of the importance and the major challenges of the use of geospatial intelligence in both defence and national security operations.

DGI brings together 700 heads of Geospatial Intelligence, Remote Sensing, GIS Mapping, Satellite Imagery and Analysis within the Military, Governmental and National Security sectors. It attracts professionals who are responsible for using, and integrating, geo based capabilities in their operations and organisations. DGI provides a unique forum for defense intelligence to discuss and debate the development of geospatial intelligence capabilities across the globe in defence and security sectors.

Addressing the use of geospatial information in scenarios such as international conflicts, defence intelligence operations, C4ISR, humanitarian disasters, crime, national security, border control, arms treaty monitoring and global climate change; a fundamental objective of DGI is to help organisations understand how to build the necessary infrastructure and architecture to take advantage of geospatial intelligence (geoint) capabilities.
