Hi Folks:

Please see below the enrollment / registration process for the upcoming Info Ops for Influence symposium. We have an excellent list of speakers from across NATO, and presentations range from simulating the information environment through measures of effectiveness and predictors of social unrest.

I recommend you register soonest, as it may be a two-step process if you DO NOT currently have a NATO RTO login.

Please note that there will be two ways to participate in the symposium.

1. You can physically attend the symposium in Amersfoort, Netherlands


2. You can log on via the Internet and participate through a webinar platform (Note: For Cdn mil on DWAN, I recommend you access via commercial / open Internet, as the Firewall may block access).

Link is here. You will probably have to cut and paste due to my Gov firewall blocking access:

Agenda / Program will be released directly from NATO RTO. However, you need to enroll or contact Mrs Rina Tahar (see below).

Feel free to forward, as appropriate.
