ISSS-ISAC Submission Deadline Extended until July 31, 2013!

Deadline Extended Until July 31, 2013!

The conference theme is Bridging the Academic/Policy Divide. The location of this year’s conference – in the U.S. capital, across the street from the State Department and a few short blocks from the White House – creates a unique opportunity to cultivate a discussion among security scholars and practitioners. While we welcome contributions across the full range of topics in the field of security studies, we particularly seek submissions that highlight challenges in translating security theories into policy recommendations and bringing policy lessons into scholarly analysis and debates. We believe that practitioners can draw fruitfully from academic research that identifies emerging national and global security issues, provides concepts and frameworks for understanding and conducting policy, and recognizes the intellectual and material challenges involved in addressing potential threats. We also note that practitioners can inject nuance, perspective, and pragmatism into threat and policy analysis, while helping identify obstacles to applying broad theories to evidence. Thus, we believe that much can be gained from an interchange between academic researchers who study deterrence, arms control, military intervention, terrorism, civil conflict, counterinsurgency, peace-building, interstate war, non-traditional threats, and human security and those in the policy world who seek the intellectual tools to help protect national interests, ameliorate conflict and lower its costs and risks, and improve human conditions. While we hope the conference theme will inspire your proposals, we also enthusiastically invite submissions, then, that do not focus explicitly on the academic/policy divide.

We strongly encourage paper as well as full-panel proposals. For individual paper proposals, we will do our best to match each proposal to others with similar topics or approaches to create interesting panels. Non-paper roundtables also are encouraged. In addition, we would like to extend a special invitation to graduate students and junior faculty to submit proposals, as we hope to showcase their work. The best student paper at the conference will be considered for the annual ISSS Best Graduate Paper Award. Ph.D. students interested in submitting their dissertations for the annual ISAC dissertation award will find this conference a useful venue for presenting and getting feedback on their work. Finally, we also invite participation by post-doctoral individuals who would like to serve as panel chairs or discussants.

Panel, roundtable, and individual paper proposals can be submitted via the main page for the ISSS-ISAC conference on the ISA website by clicking “Submit a Proposal”
(http://www.isanet.org/Conferences/ISSSISACWashingtonDC2013/Call.aspx). Please note that ISA membership is not required for either proposal submission or conference attendance though you will need to create an account with isanet.org.

PLEASE NOTE THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS HAS BEEN EXTENDED. The new deadline for paper and panel submissions will be July 31, 2013. The preliminary program will be posted by August 15, 2013 at the http://www.isanet.org/Conferences/ISSSISACWashingtonDC2013.aspx.

We look forward to a great conference and to welcoming you to Washington, D.C. We are sure that it will be a memorable and rewarding experience.
