The goal of the conference is to further promote intelligence education and provide an opportunity for networking among scholars and practitioners from academia, the private sector, and government. We seek papers from those who support and are aligned with the Mission of the Association. We are particularly interested in panel, paper, and poster proposals that speak to the conference theme of “innovating intelligence education.”
