Strategic Multilayer Assessment call for poster proposals


Strategic Multilayer Assessment call for poster proposals

January 5, 2017

Graduate students are invited to submit proposals for posters to be presented during the 10th Annual Strategic Multilayer Assessment (SMA) Conference, to be held April 25-26, 2017 at the Jacob E. Smart Building on Joint Base Andrews in Camp Springs, Maryland.

The annual SMA conference is organized by the Strategic Multilayer Assessment Office within the Department of Defense and brings together policymakers, practitioners, researchers, and academics to explore critical topics related to national security. This year’s conference is co-sponsored with the Department of Homeland Security, the National Counter Terrorism Center, and National Intelligence Council. The 2017 conference theme is, "From Control to Influence? A View of - and Vision for - the Future."  The SMA conference will incorporate a graduate student poster session in order to introduce up-and-coming scholars to the SMA community and vice-versa, an addition that received very positive feedback following last year’s introduction of the poster session.

The deadline to apply is March 5. Click here for more information on the conference and click here to access the poster submission form.
