2017 INSA Innovators' Showcase

Submit your organization's abstracts for short (6 - 8 minute) presentations of promising technologies and/or innovative concepts that can help keep America safe. Those organizations whose abstracts are selected will be invited to present to senior government technologists and scientists at the 2017 INSA Innovator’s Showcase on Thursday, May 4, in McLean VA. These presentations may be classified up to TS/SCI, unclassified or proprietary.

Principal investigators (individuals or teams) from industry and academia will have the chance to present summaries of current, emerging, or potential solutions in the following disciplines: 

  • Cybersecurity and Cyber Operations
  • Energy
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML)
  • Sensing technologies
  • Other game-changing ideas

Presenters whose abstracts are selected for the Showcase will receive feedback on their ideas from leading government science and technology experts, whose mission and application needs may provide future funding opportunities for the most promising innovations. There is no cost to a presenter whose abstract has been chosen for presentation at the Showcase. All abstracts — even those not selected for the showcase — will be provided to the government scientists, technologists, engineers and management teams from ODNI and other intelligence agencies.
The Innovators’ Showcase is an excellent opportunity to showcase your organization’s IR&D portfolio. All you need is a cover letter, a one-page, unclassified non-proprietary summary of your work, and a brief bio of the technical lead (or leads).
