One of the things that we want to do here at Sp403 is provide scholars in our field with resources. Conferences are an important part of our trade, but sometimes the security policy scholars might feel marginalized at the big POLS conferences (APSA, Midwest, southern, etc.)

SO here are some places to consider – hopefully more geared to our research.

Carnegie is a good place to start. Their events page here provides some excellent opportunities.


ISA has information about conferences here with their convention here. (ISA-con? international scholars cosplay?)
Centre for Military and Strategic Studies - Calgary, AB
The Centre for Military and Strategic Studies is presenting the 16th annual graduate studies conference: “security, strategy, and Defence”
“The graduate students at the Centre for Military and Strategic Studies welcome researchers from around the world to share their research on global security issues of the past, present, and future.

Subject matter and research methods that push the boundaries of current knowledge are encouraged. The conference is open to both undergraduate and graduate students from all areas of study. Assistance with travel and accommodation costs may be available. 
Last year’s conference saw contributors coming from as far away as Ireland, Germany, and Australia. We look forward to having stimulating discussions and debates from a wide range of disciplines and perspectives.
Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, the following: Arctic security, cyber security, East Asia and Middle East conflicts, human security, intelligence, joint operations, maritime security, military history, nuclear proliferation, peacemaking, psychology and war, resource and energy security, strategic culture, and unconventional warfare.
Proposals including contact information, a short biography, and a 250-word abstract should be sent to
Please confine presentations to a 15-minute format.
Deadline for Proposals: 2 December 2013.
We look forward to your submissions and the results of the selection process will be announced by January 2014.”
