The Global Maritime Forum is an opportunity for academia, private industry, federal government agencies and international partners to highlight and discuss current and emerging technologies and efforts to enhance maritime domain awareness. Leading experts will facilitate panel sessons, which will be followed by group discussions designed to provide participants with an opportunity to explore topics of particular interest in depth.

GMF on the intersection of technology and policy as it relates to current and emerging technologies, this
year’s theme will be "The Evolution of Big Data and Opportunities for the Maritime Domain: The Importance of Public-Private-Academic Partnerships."
