Exceedance Keynotes Announced: Terrorism, Cyber, Climate

The just-announced keynote speakers are among the many reasons to join us at Exceedance 2016. These leading experts will share their unique insights on terrorism, cyber security, and climate change—focusing on the human elements driving the science:

  • Bruce Hoffman, security studies professor at Georgetown University who held counterterrorism posts at RAND and the CIA and was a lead author of the final report from the independent commission on the FBI’s post-9/11 terrorism response
  • Matt Olsen, a president and co-founder of IronNet Cybersecurity whose work at the National Security Agency and Department of Justice led to his appointment as director of the federal government’s National Counterterrorism Center
  • Tim Jarvis, environmental scientist and author who is the founder and leader of 25zero, a campaign to raise awareness of the impact of human-induced climate change on the world’s rapidly melting equatorial glaciers—and leader of multiple expeditions including the Shackleton Epic Expedition

We’ve also recently released descriptions of the more than 60 sessions and other opportunities to interact with leaders, scientists, and your peers.

There are so many reasons to be a part of Exceedance this year, we’ve created a 1-minute video outlining the Top 5.

We hope to see you May 16-19 in Miami.
