2006 Symposium on Justice and Public Safety Information Sharing


Join your peers at the 2006 Symposium on March 13-15 at the Grand Hyatt, Washington, D.C. You won't want to miss the optional all-day workshops on March 12. Sign up to learn the basics on performance management, protecting privacy, or justice information sharing standards and technology (seating is limited to 100 per workshop).

Features and Highlights This year we've broadened our perspective to focus on justice, public safety, emergency and disaster management, intelligence, and homeland security-to advance our common efforts for effective decisionmaking for a safer America. We've invited the U.S. Attorney General as one of the keynotes, and we'll have nearly 100 expert presenters sharing leading-edge information with attendees.

New Format We've also made some exciting changes to the breakout session format this year with four focused tracks:
  • Planning: This track is geared toward Information Sharing Leaders, Sponsors/Executive Committee Members (Executive/Legislative/Judicial) and covers topics related to broad oversight and support of information sharing initiatives.
  • Analysis: Research Analysts, Intelligence Analysts, and JIEM®/Business Process Analysts will explore proven techniques and trends geared specifically to their area of expertise.
  • Implementation: Operational Managers (Information Sharing Project Managers, Business Domain Managers/Specialists, Subject Matter Experts, and Planning Committee Members) will learn from the experiences of practitioners and peers at different stages of information sharing projects.
  • Technology: Technologists/Developers/Solution Providers will explore emerging technologies to enable enterprise-wide information sharing.

Continuing Favorite Features We will continue to offer two enduring favorites: special registration and activities geared specifically toward teams, and case study sessions offering specific explorations of operational justice and public safety systems in use across the country. Dynamic plenary sessions, breakouts, peer networking, vendor demonstrations and tradeshow will deepen your understanding of the challenges and solutions to the most pressing issues confronting our community of practice today.
