NASA Holds Information Technology Summit In August

WASHINGTON — NASA’s second Information Technology Summit will bring together government and industry leaders to provide the latest perspectives on the IT field. The summit will take place August 15-17 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in San Francisco.

Approximately 2,000 participants from NASA mission directorates and support organizations, private industry, academic institutions, other federal agencies and IT groups are expected to attend. The event will feature more than 100 speakers and panel discussions on topics including best practices, enterprise architecture, innovative social networking, open government, and IT security and privacy.

NASA has partnered with the non-profit National Institute of Aerospace for the event. The institute acts as a liaison among NASA, industry, public partners and academia to secure resources to better promote the agency’s vision while enabling an open dialogue among a broad IT community.

NASA Associate Administrator and Chief Information Officer Linda Cureton will host the event. “The Information Technology Summit continues NASA’s goal of inspiring a more innovative, collaborative, and informed IT workforce and bringing together America’s IT talent to one location through technical workshops and information exchange,” Cureton said.

The summit’s theme is “Making IT Stellar at NASA!” For more information, contact Karen Harper at 202-358-1807 or To register, visit:
