Organizations responsible for conducting special operations through both “direct action” and “indirect action” face a growing list of emerging challenges. Given the dynamic threats and challenges posed around the world, it is critical that the special operations community be prepared and funded to provide the correct response for the particular mission. This symposium will address the application of global special operations forces to most appropriately meet the Nation’s needs. At DSI's SOF Symposium you can expect to hear from OSD and State Department policy makers, Functional and Geographic Combatant Command leadership, Force Providers and Component Commands, Theater Special Operations Commands, as well as intelligence and planning directorates involved in special operations. The Symposium will bring together senior level officials from the DoD and DOS, specifically the policy and operational organizations responsible for preparing and operating special operations forces across a diverse set of missions. Topics to be discussed include - Balancing the Use of Direct and Indirect Action - Deterring, Disrupting, and Defeating Transnational Terrorist Organizations - Optimizing TSOC’s for Most Effective Use - Collaboration for Effective Humanitarian and Diplomatic Operations - Improving Doctrine and Training for Indirect Action Operations - Capability Requirements and Acquisition Priorities Necessary to Respond to Current and Future Emerging Threats - COCOM Collaborative Efforts for the Most Effective Use and Placement of SOF - Effectively Blending SOF with Conventional Forces where Appropriate
