IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: The 2021 Global Maritime Forum has moved to an all virtual conference. During the past few weeks, local governments, government agencies, and private corporations have increasingly restricted travel due to COVID-19 and its DELTA variant. Hawai‘i has not been spared from increased impacts. The change to virtual format is a logical approach to lessen the health risk to conference participants and speakers.

Hosted by the National Maritime Intelligence-Integration Office (NMIO) and the Applied Research Laboratory (ARL) at the University of Hawaiʻi
