Call for Presenters

AFITC Training

See below for full timeline.

The AFITC 2020 will bring together information technology professionals, cyber professionals, Air War College/Air Command and Staff College students and academicians, decision makers, users, providers, program managers, requirements generators, contracting officers, acquisition managers, and finance managers for two and a half days.

The overarching focus will be advancing the effectiveness, thought, and dialog of the Nation’s and Air Force’s approach to cyber and the use of IT.  It will address how to partner with industry in solving significant issues of freedom of operation within cyberspace, while simultaneously securing vital data in a medium that was never designed with security in mind.  A major goal will be to help forge a path for future cyber strategies and initiatives to help maintain America’s leadership in this critical domain.

This year’s theme is “Multi-Domain Effects…Integrating Data & Digital”.

Impact of COVID-19

The AFITC Team is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation.  There is a possibility that this year’s event may be entirely virtual.  If it is, we will work with the presenter to set up a video presentation—either live or pre-recorded.  The AFITC Team will continue to work through the details and make a formal decision on the event format in the mid-June time frame or earlier.
