21st Annual Acquisition Research Symposium

Date: May 8, 2024 to May 9, 2024
Location: Embassy Suites, Monterey, CA

About the event: The Acquisition Research Symposium is the premier event connecting acquisition professionals from across disciplines and around the world. Senior acquisition officials from the Departments of Defense and the U.S. Navy serve as keynote speakers and panel chairs who present their critiques and comments on research papers and priorities. Many attendees are Naval Postgraduate School faculty and graduate students engaged in acquisition-related research.

This year’s symposium takes up the theme of “Resourcing Innovation” in coordination with the final report from the Commission on Planning, Programming, Budgeting and Execution (PPBE) Reform. Many panels and papers explore the role of funding and the budget process in driving acquisition innovation. Other panels consider topics including space acquisition, supply chains and logistics, artificial intelligence, systems engineering, software-based systems, digital engineering, cybersecurity, shipbuilding, autonomous vessels, and international acquisition.

The symposium is free to attend and offers both in person and virtual attendance.

Hosted by the Acquisition Research Program, Department of Defense Management, in conjunction with the Naval Warfare Studies Institute at the Naval Postgraduate School.
