Information about ICCRTS and KSCO

ICCRTS (http://internationalc2institute.org/2017-iccrts) - In 1995, the US DoD Command and Control Research Program (CCRP) (1994-2015), within the Office of the Secretary of Defense, held the first International Command and Control Research and Technology Symposium (ICCRTS) at the National Defense University in Washington, D.C. This meeting built upon a series of meetings during the 1970s by the Office of Naval Research and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that brought together interested researchers to exchange ideas on command and control (C2), its measurement and assessment, and the impact of new technologies on C2 processes. While the initial meeting was modest in size (63 participants) and included only a handful of non-U.S. participants, ICCRTS has grown substantially, to include hundreds of participants from dozens of nations. Nowadays, the Symposium provides an unparalleled opportunity for professional researchers, academics, active duty and reserve officers, and policymakers to interact with one another, understand the state of the art of C2, and influence the state of the practice among defence coalition partners. The ICCRTS focuses on leading-edge issues involving (a) new concepts in C2 (b) new technologies and their potential impact on C2, and (c) feedback and evidence from experiments, exercises, and real-world operations. The Symposium is also an important forum for discussion of coalition and collective C2 issues and for examining the complex endeavors (stabilization, operations, disaster relief) involving a variety of entities including military, civilian, government, international organizations, Private Voluntary Organizations (PVOs) and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs). ICCRTS 2017 is the 22nd event of ICCRTS.

KSCO (http://ksco.info/ksco-2017.html) - Knowledge Systems for Coalition Operations is an international working group exploring research in Knowledge-based Systems and Information Management, with a focus on the challenges of Coalition Operations. KSCO regularly organizes a technical conference where practitioners and key decision makers in coalition operations management meet and discuss with researchers from areas of knowledge-based systems, information management, planning, and multi-agent systems, exchange experience and ideas, share inspiration, and suggest novel concepts. KSCO 2017 is the 9th event of KSCO.
