The Symposium will take place from April 30 – May 3, 2018, after a six-year absence from the West Coast. It will be held near a fleet concentration area to reduce overall cost.

The Symposium agenda with speakers and a link to register will be posted soon.  There are many opportunities for you to participate, including showcasing air traffic control tools through an exhibit, identifying educational opportunities for young Sailors and Marines, sponsoring Symposium coffee breaks, hosting an evening social, or participating in technological demonstrations.
