Registration deadline extended for DARPA Forward conference

The deadline to register to attend the DARPA Forward conference at the WSU Pullman campus in person has been extended to 5 p.m. EST on Sept. 2.

The conference will be Sept. 13–14 and is intended to connect DARPA leaders with new communities of talent and partnerships to energize regional and national innovation, fuel breakthroughs in national security, and help deliver the U.S. technological advantage.

Held as a hybrid in‑person and virtual event, the conference will feature keynote speakers, poster sessions, panels, plenary sessions, networking roundtables, lightning talks, and program demonstrations. The registration deadline for virtual attendance is Sept. 6.

DARPA was established to facilitate research in technology with potential military applications. Unlike other Department of Defense organizations, DARPA does not have its own laboratories or research facilities. Instead of hiring a large, permanent staff, DARPA awards short contracts to leading scientists that will direct research as project managers. These project managers, in turn, are given significant freedom to fund research that they believe will benefit the military.

Registration information and a full schedule of events is available on the conference website.
