This will be the ninth annual conference to be hosted by the U.S. Naval War College’s (NWC) China Maritime Studies Institute (CMSI) and will focus on the CNO-directed topic: China's surface capabilities and strategic implications. The topic is a logical progression from the past two annual conferences (China's Strategy for the Near Seas / China's Far Seas Operations) and supports the core research efforts of CMSI and affiliated DoD organizations (OPNAV, ONI, etc.).
**As of April 22, the conference has officially been approved by DoN.**
