  • D60: DARPA's 60th Anniversary Symposium Play all

    D60 was a three-day symposium hosted by DARPA to commemorate its 60th anniversary. The event, held September 5-7, 2018, highlighted DARPA’s innovative approach to creating breakthrough technologies and capabilities that represent the Agency’s past, present, and future.

    DARPA’s mission requires a constant stream of novel ideas and contributions from innovators looking beyond what is possible now. D60 provided attendees the opportunity to engage with up-and-coming innovators, along with some of today’s most creative and accomplished scientists and technologists, as they continue to provide these contributions. By sharing our record of achievements over the past 60 years, DARPA sought to inspire attendees to explore future technologies, their potential application to tomorrow’s technical and societal challenges, and the dilemmas those applications may engender. D60 participants had the opportunity to enter into new relationships, partnerships, and communities of interest that the event set out to foster, and to advance dialogue on the pursuit of science in the national interest.

    D60 featured six plenary sessions focused on topics of broad importance and interest, as well as 30 themed breakout sessions that dove more deeply into particular topics relevant to national security. An exhibit hall featured engaging displays from DARPA’s six technical offices, each of which showcased a selection of programs that reflected the breadth of DARPA’s research portfolio and the range of its performer base. Visitors to the exhibit hall also had the opportunity to review an extensive showcase of historical displays and artifacts featuring highlights from DARPA’s storied past.
