2017 CCH Cryptologic History Symposium

Location: JHU/APL Kossiakoff Center in Laurel, MD
Description: 2017 CCH Symposium on Cryptologic History - Co-sponsored by NSA's Center for Cryptologic History and the NCMF Thursday, October 19, 2017 - Saturday, October 21, 2017

The 2017 Symposium on Cryptologic History will take place October 19 - 20, 2017 at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory's Kossiakoff Center in Laurel, Maryland. Following the Symposium, on Saturday, October 21, participants will be given an opportunity to tour the National Cryptologic Museum, participate in a workshop on sources for research in cryptologic history, and enjoy a presentation about William and Elizebeth Friedman.

The theme for the 2017 Symposium is "Milestones, Memories, and Momentum." There are many milestones to mark in 2017: the 160th anniversary of the first attempt to span the Atlantic with a telegraph cable, 100 years since both the entry of the United States into World War I and the Russian October Revolution, and 75 years after the World War II battles of Coral Sea and Midway. The Symposium will take place just a few months before the 50th anniversary of the Tet Offensive in Vietnam, and during the 25th year after the fall of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War.
