The event you've been waiting for is finally here, the 54th Annual AOC International Symposium & Convention has begun! Sessions begin tomorrow morning, but the Marriott Marquis in Washington D.C. is already buzzing with our 'Crowsino Royale' welcome reception. Attendees are trying to hit it big while enjoying delicious food and drink, surrounded by old friends and new.

The AOC staff, volunteers, speakers, and exhibitors have been working non-stop transforming the Marriott Marquis and Walter E. Washington Convention for tomorrow's symposium & convention. Things will officially launch tomorrow morning at 8:30 with our opening session featuring presentations from General Stephen W. Wilson, Vice Chief of Staff for the U.S. Air Force, and Mr. Randall Walden, SES, Director of Rapid Capabilities Office. Check out the rest of this year's stacked agenda, to see all of the sessions and speakers you won't want to miss out on. Don't forget to check out all the exhibitors at this year's event, a schedule of all the events for you to attend, and the STEM outreach program. While you're in town, be sure to register for one of our three professional development courses!

If you're kicking yourself for not registering for this event, don't be too hard on yourself - because you can still be a part of it! Get an Uber, hop a plane, run if you have to, you'll make it by morning! This is the biggest event in Electromagnetic Warfare, and you won't want to miss a second. You can still register on site and registration is free for uniformed, active-duty military, and government civilians with proper government ID.
