Future of Voting Systems Symposium II

The Election Assistance Commission (EAC) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will sponsor a two-day symposium to explore emerging trends in voting with the diverse election community at large.

The symposium will provide an environment for interactive discussions among the attendees including election officials, voting system manufacturers, voting system test laboratories, standard developers, academics, and Federal, State, and local government officials. The symposium will encourage attendee participation through panel discussions and break-out sessions, with limited presentations to frame the topics to be explored. The first day of the symposium will explore trends in voting systems, including the people, the processes, and the technology. The second day of the symposium will include on-going activities in interoperable systems and a series of break-out sessions that will engage the participants in identifying forward-looking technologies across a wide variety of voting topics.
