May 6 and May 7 will bring the Rīga StratCom Dialogue 2021 from the NATO Strategic Communications Center of Excellence, and while a few sessions will be available to all, if you want to see the full event you need to register before the end of May 5.

Self-described as "the leading event on strategic communications and leadership in the information domain". the Dialogues have been taking place since 2015, bringing together international organisations, governments, the military community, academia and the private sector to discuss the most pressing issues shaping today’s information environment.

"This year we invite you to engage and connect with the best and brightest minds in the field in an on-line format," publicity material says.

"The spread of the global pandemic has showcased the need to understand and anticipate human behaviour, analyse dimensions of cognitive space, and monitor trends in technological development. Technological innovations tend to alter our perceptions and interactions, making it difficult to predict and model their future impact on our societies in the long run.

"Since the establishment of the NATO StratCom COE in Riga, Latvia, the centre has become a knowledge hub and meeting place for experts and practitioners studying and shaping the role of strategic communications in the age of information. Our previous conferences have annually gathered up to 800 strategic communications experts from over 40 countries around the world."

Speeches will be heard from Latvian PResiden Egils Levits as well as European Commissioner Vera Jourova, Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas, Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis, and French Minister of State for Digital Transition and Electronic Communication, Cedric O  plus many more state officials and professionals.
