Some of the topics that will be discussed will cover the fields of virtual technologies, biomedical technologies, electromagnetic spectrum, multi-domain operations, artificial intelligence and materials and manufacturing. Some of the leaders that will be attending are DARPA Director and 2022 Wash100 winner Stefanie Tompkins, U.S. Marine Corps Commandant Gen.

The agency will partner with Colorado State University, Washington State University, The Ohio State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Texas A&M University and the University of California San Diego for the conference.
