As a part of the EMC Chair workshop series on maritime security and information sharing, this humanitarian-focused conference is designed to help the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard develop robust research, professional education, training, and development agendas to improve civilian-military coordination through information sharing during humanitarian responses. The conference was developed and chaired through the college's Humanitarian Response Program. This fourth maritime-centric EMC Chair symposium is a follow-up to the 2016 Navy Design, where the Chief of Naval Operations charged us to "deepen operational relationships with other services, agencies, industry, allies and partners - who operate with the Navy to support our shared interests." Specific objectives include:
