The remainder of the conference will consist of a series of workshops in smaller conference rooms with a format designed to encourage lively discussion among the participants. (C) The agenda includes something for everyone involved or interested in SIGINT Development. We are offering workshops on Convergence/Cross Media Chaining, Network Analysis, Follow the Money/People/Goods, Target Templating, Social Network Analysis, Skills & Training, and Policy & Legalities, during which briefers will present the latest SIGDEV tools and techniques and will provide ample opportunity for valuable analyst exchange to help solve some of SIGINT's most challenging problems. On Thursday 12 June, there will be a special session on Fiber Optics consisting of an unclassified tutorial sponsored by the Laboratory for Telecommunications Sciences in the morning which will acquaint analysts with the technology. Thursday afternoon NSA technical leaders will conduct a classified session presenting specific case studies to help analysts understand optical networking from a SIGINT perspective and to illustrate what is important to analyze and report from that environment. Sidebar sessions on Wireless LANs, Geographic Information Systems, Internet Research, and Highlights of SIGINT Development at field sites round out the program. Throughout the week, there will be a wide range of live demonstrations of tools along with on-site tours of organizations involved in or supporting SIGDEV activities.
