Air University at Maxwell Air Force Base

After a four-year hiatus, the Air University at Maxwell Air Force Base is once again hosting a massive technological conference.

The three-day Air Force IT and Cyberpower Conference kicks off today. IT leaders, top military brass and representatives from leading technology companies will gather in downtown Montgomery to discuss the latest in cyber security and information technology.

A quick glance around a classroom at Maxwell Air Force Base looks more like a United Nations meeting. Flags for Nigeria, Japan, Macedonia and many more countries adorn the students green flight suits along with squadron patches and aviation accomplishments. That’s because this class is called “Understanding and Working With the U.S. Military.” Dr. Brian Selmeski is the instructor.

“We have one civilian, nine military ranging from Captain to Lieutenant Colonel they are from ten different countries and between them they must speak oh at least 25 languages”
