MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, Ala. (AFNS) -- Registration is now open for Air University’s 4th annual Language, Regional Expertise and Culture Symposium.

The Air Force Culture and Language Center at Air University hosts the symposium each year providing a platform for academic exchange on topics specific to language, region and culture education in the military. The symposium is March 27-29 and the theme is “Intercultural operability.”

“Military personnel regularly face hurdles of a cultural nature when coordinating efforts at tactical, operational and strategic levels. Therefore, this year’s symposium asks participants to focus on how culture, regional expertise and language are at the heart of interoperability,” said Dr. Patricia Fogarty, AFCLC and symposium co-founder.

Scheduled speakers include Marine Corps Brig. Gen. Robert Sofge Jr., deputy commander, U.S. Marine Corps Forces, Pacific; and Matthew Bogdanos, assistant district attorney for New York County and chief of U.S. Antiquities Trafficking Unit.

“The symposium brings together scholars and practitioners from across the DoD and the LREC enterprise to explore issues and initiatives that are designed to equip and prepare our Airmen for success in diverse and uncertain situations,” said Gregory Day, AFCLC director of staff.

To register and for more symposium information, visit the AFCLC website at www.airuniversity.af.edu/AFCLC/AU-LREC.

Registration deadline for attendees without a U.S. Department of Defense identification is March 1, 2019. Registration deadline for DoD-affiliated attendees is March 12, 2019.
