Purpose of the Conference

In a changing world, undergoing a profound change in the geopolitical situation, with the introduction of new actors and the emergence of new threats that cause great uncertainty about global security, the armed forces are faced with new and demanding challenges and the need for a thorough reflection on how to plan and conduct military operations..

In this scenario, the implications of emerging technologies (artificial intelligence, Big Data, quantum computing, 3D printing, internet of things ...) will be known through the contribution of recognized experts and relevant companies in the design and development of new weapons and sensors (autonomous lethal weapons, hypersonic weapons, laser weapons, unmanned systems ...).
