Cryptologic Conferences & Programs

NCMF Quarterly Cryptologic Programs

NCMF Quarterly Cryptologic Program Speakers

The Foundation sponsors quarterly programs featuring speakers well versed on subjects of professional interest to its members, usually in the areas of cryptology and intelligence. Guest speakers are well-known experts in the field and have often authored books which are made available during the program.

The Spring and Summer programs typically take place in March and June and, as noted above, feature a particular topic and guest speaker.

The third quarterly program, held in October, is also the General Membership Meeting & Annual Symposium. Every other year, the October program coincides with the NSA's two-day Symposium on Cryptologic History, thus creating a THREE DAYS OF CRYPTOLOGY (next occurrence is October 2021). For a recap and photos from past NCMF October programs, please see the "Previous Programs" section of the General Membership Meeting & Annual Symposium page.

The final quarterly program (typically in December) traditionally features presentations related to intelligence or cryptologic events surrounding Pearl Harbor.

See the "Previous Programs" area below for details about previous year's topics and speakers.

HELP US PROMOTE OUR PROGRAMS:  The NCMF seeks volunteers to help publicize the cryptologic programs we sponsor throughout the year. If you live in a retirement community, belong to a senior center, and/or visit other public places where events can be posted, please consider helping us spread the word. You can download event flyers from our website (see below). We can also send flyers via post or e-mail, or make them available at the foundation office. Please e-mail ncmf@cryptologicfoundation.org if you are able to help. We encourage you to tell friends and family about these interesting and valuable programs.
