"The rapid advancement of technology is fundamentally transforming our national security, economy, and society. To navigate these changes, our goal is to unite today's leaders in innovation in order to reinforce the leadership of the United States and our allies and partners in vital, emerging technologies."

More than 6500 attendees and 250+ leading speakers will collaborate, exchange groundbreaking ideas, and forge lasting partnerships.

"We are proud to partner with SCSP in bringing together leaders across government, industry and academia to discuss these critical topics and foster strategies that advance our economic and national security."
