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.
The continued growth in unmanned, sensor, and networked devices is expected to drive the need for larger, more capable and more diverse communications systems. Among other enhancements, these systems must improve jam-resistance and low probability of detection to keep pace with adversaries’ growing electronic sophistication and must adapt to fast-changing operational environments. By contrast, today’s military communications architectures are static and inflexible.
Information, or ‘content’, on the World Wide Web is replicated and distributed across the world to ensure high availability to the end-user. User expectations for rapid access to content have led to the creation of content distribution systems that enhance the user experience. Consequently, users may quickly access content used for everyday living, from restaurant menus and maps, to local and world news.
