Whova Conference

Click the Playlist button in the upper-left corner to select other panel videos.

Established in 2020, MEI’s Cyber Program studies the intersection of technology, security, and governance in the Middle East, with a particular focus on international security, foreign relations, privacy, and human security. The second annual MEI Cyber Conference will investigate the radical changes that cyberspace has brought to society and interstate relations in the Middle East. New avenues for self-expression, surveillance, commerce, criminality, warfare, and political mobilization are all converging on societies in significant states of transition.

This year's conference features an array of prominent voices, who will convene to discuss these important issues through fireside chats, panels, and keynote remarks. For a full list of speakers, please click here. On June 8th, MEI is hosting two pre-conference networking sessions. They will last for 30 minutes and will randomize groups of four every five minutes. The networking sessions and conference will be held on Whova, a virtual conference platform. Click the button below to download the Whova app on your tablet or mobile phone.
