We invite high-quality professional presentations that reflect the 2023 CBRN Conference & Exhibition theme of “Biodefense and Pandemic Preparedness in an Era of Persistent Conflict”
Autonomy & Robotics: Topics or capabilities that address robots performing tasks without human intervention. These may include sensing, planning, or implementing actions in a self-governing manner and in cooperation with manned units and higher echelon command.
Advanced Protection: The future vision is for integrating CBRN individual and collective protection to enhance a Warfighter’s lethality, while not hindering individual operational abilities. Collective protection systems are fixed (shelter), or mobile (example NBCRV, air platforms) which allow the Warrior to operate without the encumbrance of a mask. Bridging science fiction (Starship Troopers living suits) with science reality (needing separate Individual and collective protective systems which are not interactive) could provide uninterrupted protection in or out of fixed sites.
Decision Support: Decision support systems serve the management, operations, and planning levels of the DoD physical security enterprise to help make decisions, which may be rapidly changing with little advanced warning. The DoD is looking for a capability/tool that focuses on command-and-control equipment and projects related to the creation and enhancement of common operating pictures, and the establishment of common architectures and interface standards.
Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning: The DoD is looking to incorporate AI into decision-making and operations to reduce risk to fielded forces and generate military advantage. Do you have tools/capabilities that can help better maintain our equipment, reduce operational costs, and improve readiness? By improving the accuracy of military assessments and enhancing mission precision, AI can reduce the risk of civilian casualties and other collateral damage.
Simulated Training Environment: Long gone are the days of classroom training and technical manuals. Looking for topics and ideas that provide stand alone, realistic training that don’t require removing the Warfighter from the fight.
Deadline to submit your poster is Friday, April 28, 2023.You will be notified in end of May to early June whether your submission has been accepted.

- Presentation posters should contain graphics, text, and reproduced images suitable for media reproduced to the partition dimensions. We recommend text sizes no smaller than font size 50 (graphs or images with text less than 50 excepted). Images should contain suitable dpi no smaller than hi-res .jpgs.
It is recommended that posters are brought on-site with the attendee.
If you choose to ship your poster, please contact Carizza Gutierrez at firstname.lastname@example.org for shipping instructions. Make sure that you are shipping to the attention of the poster author or whomever will be in charge of posting the poster once on-site. DO NOT send your poster to NDIA.
Presenters are responsible for both posting and removing their own posters. Posters left up after scheduled presentation periods will be taken down and thrown away.
The poster must be attached to the bulletin board prior to the start of the reception on Monday, July 24, 2023, and taken down no later than after the afternoon break on Wednesday, July 26, 2023. Posters will be removed after the afternoon break on Wednesday, July 26, 2023, if not already removed/claimed.
The Poster Session will be open during breaks and the networking reception.
All presenters must register and pay for the conference.
Please note: Poster acceptance for poster presentations does not include a session presentation.
