Four days after INFOWARCON 2001 concluded, the very face of our world changed. Since then, governments and commercial organizations have accelerated their efforts at defending the new Security Triad: Electronic, Physical and Personnel.

The threats to critical infrastructures and government systems have never been higher, and increased cooperation is more necessary than ever before – here and throughout the world.

INFOWARCON 2002 will bring together political, military and commercial leaders from around the world to discuss the latest in threats and defenses. We are soliciting creative analytic, interoperable real-world opinions and solutions that will function in:

  • Countering the threats of Global and National Cyberterrorism
  • National and Municipal Critical Infrastructure Protection
  • Military and Government Information Operations (Defense and Offense)

Interested parties from government, law enforcement, academia, corporations, product vendors and individuals from all nations are invited to submit papers or concepts for presentations to be given at INFOWARCON 2002 and published in the Conference Proceedings and on our web sites. The following Solutions Oriented topics are of special interest to the conference, but all papers will be considered.

  • Infrastructural protection, defensive and reactive technologies and methodologies
  • CyberTerrorism: Changes and New Realities
  • How Our Adversaries Have Changed: The human elements of infowar & terrorism
  • Changing IW/IO Doctrines since 9/11/01

  • Case studies and real world successes of defensive information warfare and infrastructure protection
  • Forensics for law enforcement and corporate investigations
  • Effective information operations and information assurance for the military
  • The law and cyber-conflict: international and US issues
  • Smart weapons
  • Intelligence options to combat infowar
  • Formulating electronic civil defense, national and intelligence mechanisms

General Submission Notes

Entertainment and education go hand in hand. InfowarCon speakers are among the best in the world, and we want all attendees to get the most value for their time. Please keep the following in mind:

Your Audience:

Multi-media presentations, real-time scenarios or gaming, audience participation and highly interactive topics are more likely to be accepted by the reviewers and appreciated by your Audience. Debate, controversy, dissimilar positions and opinions have always been encouraged and appreciated at InfowarCon.

English is the official conference language and all sessions will be unclassified. Your Audience is military, intelligence, commercial and international. Some are very technical and others are very senior, non-technical.

Your Audience is looking for Real-World Solutions to Real-World Problems, as well as being made aware of future possibilities. Your Audience wants to come away with something tangible to do, enact, change, design, buy or enforce.

The quality of presentation materials is very important. Handouts should accurately reflect the presentation.


Please submit up to a 3 page briefing with as many pictures, diagrams and descriptions of the proposed session. Submissions are to be in Word, RTF or PowerPoint (97/2K) and under 1MB. Include length of session (or full day tutorial) or time needed for panel discussion.

We also need one paragraph on who should attend this session, why it is important to them, and what they will learn and take away with them by attending. What sort of give-aways or handouts will be provided?

What is the baseline knowledge required for the session. Is it very technical? Is it for management or military leaders?

What sort of technical arrangements you will need or will provide, such as in classroom settings. This helps us determine which facilities are best suited for your session.

Full contact information including title, mailing address, phone, fax, cell phone, website, and your current underwear size.


Submission Deadline: February March 11, 2002. Acceptance Date: March 25, 2002. You will be notified by email or phone. If your paper is chosen, you will be asked to commit to provide your finished presentation by July 1, 2002.

Please submit to [email protected] or [email protected] with "InfowarCon 2002 Submission" in the subject line of the email
