The annual conference of the China Maritime Studies Institute (CMSI) is a key function of the institute and has the aim of stimulating focused research on Chinese maritime development.
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.**
