All delegates must have a NEED-TO-KNOW for the information that will be discussed at the conference. Attendance is, therefore, by-invitation only and not widely advertised or otherwise solicited.

Only registrants with a U.S. SECRET, NATO SECRET, or other U.S. government-recognized foreign equivalent clearance and a validated need-to-know will be allowed to attend all three days of the conference, including open and controlled unclassified sessions.


During all conference days, delegates will not be allowed to bring any electronic equipment that has the capability of capturing sound and/or images and/or with Wi-fi capability regardless of its on/off state into the room. A prohibited item check desk will be available for storing the aforementioned items.

Luggage and other baggage items also will not be allowed. Handbags and personal possessions will be inspected upon entry into the conference area or as required.
