AIPIO is committed to delivering quality cost-effective educative, training and networking events for intelligence practitioners throughout Australia.  The annual event program includes major national events such as the Seminar, Conference and Forum, as well as many smaller regional events organised by our network of regional representatives where the emphasis is on networking at the local level. These representatives facilitate smaller events with an emphasis on networking, to engage members and promote the Institute at a local level, and to keep the AIPIO Board informed about regional perspectives.  

The events calendar is designed to provide our Members and visitors to the site with information detailing AIPIO events and also those conducted by intelligence and related organisations. If you know of an event that is not on the calendar and which may be of interest to our Members or 
other intelligence practitioners then please contact our regional representatives or the Secretariat and we will review it for addition to the events calendar.

Strengthening the Partnership between Intelligence Professionals and Technology’

Wednesday 30 May 2018
Modern intelligence professionals are challenged by the growing volume of information, and the speed with which this information is created and distributed in the course of policy development, planning and operations.  Increasingly, technology is having a significant impact on intelligence workflow, skills, and organisation, with analysts using a range of technologies to analyse and add value to information in a timely manner.  The AIPIO National Intelligence Seminar 2018 will explore the strengthening partnership between humans and technology in the field of intelligence through three activities: a review of industry good practices by KordaMentha; an interactive practitioner workshop based on a real-world case; and a review of workshop findings by expert panel.  AIPIO will draw on these findings to present a White Paper at our National Conference – Intelligence 2018.

Planning is underway for Intelligence 2018, which will be held at the QT Hotel in Canberra from 21-23 August 2018. Dorothy Seidel Hooke has kindly agreed to join me as Co-Convenor for Intelligence 2018. The theme for Intelligence 2018 is ‘Integrated Intelligence: working together better’, and within that theme we will explore the sub-themes of collaboration, technology, and capability.  

- Gill Wilson, Vice-President, AIPIO

Intelligence professionals make their living drawing actionable insights from sketchy data, but the growing velocity, volume, variety, and complexity of this data demands more than the popular view of intelligence as solo operators, siloed functions, and exclusive organisations. To be successful, modern intelligence profession
als must rely on ‘outsiders’ – business, academe, and public sector institutions – tightly integrated for alignment, complementarity, and synergy. AIPIO – as a critical change agent in the intelligence profession – stands ready to engage, support, advise, and partner to advance this goal of ‘integrated intelligence’.  We believe advancing this goal requires measured investment in collaboration, technology, and capability

Producing Intelligence Collaboratively - Tim Van Gelder, PhD – SWARM Project

The SWARM Project ( at the University of Melbourne is a large research effort aimed at improving analytical reasoning, particularly for intelligence analysis.  SWARM has major funding from IARPA, the US Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity.  We are building a cloud-based platform on which groups work collaboratively to solve difficult intelligence-type problems and produce reports displaying their reasoning.  SWARM is inviting organisations to contribute a team (or teams) of analysts to participate in a research exercise in which each team would work on four challenging intelligence-type problems on the new SWARM platform.  Team members would spend 3-4 hours per week over five weeks.  Participation is online, asynchronous, and anonymous.  Organisations can participate without public knowledge.
