DARPA Bay Area SDR Hackfest
A hackfest, otherwise known as a hackathon or code sprint, is a common way for free and open source software (FOSS) projects to engage and enable communities. As science and technology continue to advance and further accelerate the speed of innovation, DARPA's interest in building common platforms, toolsets, and fundamental skills has grown. That interest has been a long-standing tenet of the Free and Open-Source Software (FOSS) community as well, and DARPA believes that building an engagement between the FOSS and DARPA communities will allow both communities to benefit from and promote the use of advanced technology. DARPA's Software Defined Radio (SDR) Hackfests are set up to engage a community that includes more than just the core developers of a project.

The Computer History Museum
At the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, on May 22, 2017, DARPA will host an Information and Teaming Workshop in support of the DARPA Software-Defined Radio (SDR) Bay Area Hackfest. The objective of the Bay Area Hackfest--which will be held November 13-17 at NASA Ames, Moffet Field, California—is to engage and enable a community of interested engineers and scientists working towards the future confluence of radio and information technology.

DARPA Conference Center
DARPA’s Information Innovation Office (I2O) will host a Proposers Day on February 6, 2017, to provide information to potential proposers on the new Computational Simulation of Online Social Behavior (SocialSim) program. SocialSim will seek to develop innovative technologies for high-fidelity computational simulation of online social behavior. The program will focus specifically on information spread and evolution.
Modern expeditionary military missions generate and exchange massive amounts of data that are used to produce situational awareness and guide decision-making. Much of the data must travel long distances along backbone communications networks composed of high-capacity links that interconnect command centers.
