AFA’s Global Warfare Symposium Covers Global Role of U.S. Air Force

AFA's annual Global Warfare Symposium is now only one week away. 

Come hear military leaders, senior government officials, and academicians address the many challenges that the U.S. Air Force faces in its global role! Themed “Rethinking Global Conflicts in the 21st Century," the Global Warfare Symposium will take place Thursday, November 17 to Friday, November 18, 2011, at a new location, the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. This new location allows the Symposium additional space to include more presentations and several break-out sessions.

What is the foundational role space and cyber play in the nation’s defense? How can enhanced air-naval cooperation help counter anti-access threats in peace, crisis and war? Amid a changing strategic environment and continually emerging operational requirements, what should the Air Force be focusing on in the global arena?

Expect to also hear timely presentations on cyberspace; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; expeditionary forces; global threats; and space. Confirmed speakers include General Philip Breedlove, Vice Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force; General William Shelton, Commander, Air Force Space Command; retired USAF Lt. General David Deptula, the first Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance; Mark Lewis, former Chief Scientist of the Air Force; and more.

Also, senior political scientists and researchers from RAND Corp. will be hosting several discussions, covering challenges to the American way of war, the recent uprisings in the Arab Spring, and nuclear enterprise.

This November symposium, accompanied with the Air Force Ball, is a special part of AFA’s heritage and provides an opportunity to share ideas with highly skilled aerospace and Air Force professionals.
