2021 Virtual SIW Agenda

The SISO Conference Committee has worked diligently to create a strong agenda for the 2021 Virtual SIW, including several tracks of papers and presentations, numerous guest speakers and panel sessions, and a full slate of tutorials and working group meetings. 

The SIW schedule is compressed, in order to accommodate attendees across numerous timezones, from the West Coast of the U.S.A. to Europe, and beyond.

We plan to record all sessions, as possible, and make
the recordings available "on demand" - to paid registrants - for approximately 90 days - after the SIW.  

Please contact Patrick Rowe at prowe@sisostds.org with any questions.

Note to Authors...
Many of us work closely on a daily basis with government customers as members of integrated teams.  As you make plans to submit your abstracts and papers to SIW, please consider asking your government customers to participate in writing and presenting the paper or presentation.
