Managing the Information Tsunami
Monday, 9:30-10:45 a.m.

With the wealth of information available through open source, managing the “tsunami” becomes an ever increasing demand. While a wealth of data is desirable, getting the right information to the right people is critical. This session explores how the Intelligence Community should be organized to better manage the flood of information; directing resources to do so; mechanisms and tools to do so; and recent innovations from public and private industry that are successful in managing the flow.

Social Sciences and the Human Terrain
Monday, 1:00-2:15 p.m.

By utilizing a panoply of social science perspectives, including sociology, psychology, anthropology, political science, it is possible to gain a nuanced and sophisticated understanding view of human relationships and dynamics.
