The event is described as follows:

With so much emphasis being placed on returning to the moon, development of cislunar space — the orbital area near and around the moon — presents exciting and untapped potential. Possible applications like lunar outposts, extraterrestrial mining operations, and interplanetary waystations are just the start. Investment in cislunar development can boost U.S. space commerce and expand the human footprint in the solar system.

This webinar, featuring Dr. James Vedda, will discuss plans for the next moon missions and questions that need to be answered to capitalize on those missions, including how humans might develop, work, and live in cislunar space.

This is an interactive webinar, so attendees are encouraged to pose questions and comments to Dr. Vedda. To take full advantage of this discussion, please review Cislunar Development: What to Build — and Why by Dr. Vedda.
