ISAC-ISSS Joint Conference Notre Dame 2016

“May You Live in Interesting Times”

We are pleased to announce this year’s ISAC-ISSS conference hosted by the University of Notre Dame and to be held at Notre Dame (South Bend, IN) November 4-6, 2016.

We are soliciting paper, panel, and roundtable proposals now through August 14, 2016.

This year’s conference theme is “May You Live in Interesting Times.” Toward the end of the Cold War, a scholar at Brookings remarked: ‘there has yet to be a good book written about the helicopter.’ Today, for better and worse, the domain of security studies is vast. A quick spin of the globe reveals widespread radical Islamic terrorism, fears of nuclear proliferation, new weapons emerging at an ever pace, renewed great power rivalry, resource competition, conflicting claims and rising tension in Asian waters, and conflicts across the Sahel through the Middle East and further East. Indeed, do we even have well established names for the conflicts in Syria or Iraq?

In line with the diverse set of topics facing scholars, we look forward to accepting papers that address security studies, broadly defined. The deadline for paper, panel, and roundtable proposals is August 14, 2016.

On Friday night, our lead keynote will be Monica Toft from Oxford University speaking on demographics and conflict. She will then guest host a WIIS (Women in International Security) reception. We will also have a simultaneous general reception. There will be WIIS breakout sessions and mentoring opportunities throughout the conference. On Saturday night, our keynote speakers will debate: "Should the United States adopt a grand strategy of restraint?" On the pro side will be Eugene Gholz of University of Texas/Austin and the counter will be Stephen Brooks from Dartmouth. The above are new wrinkles for our joint conference! And, don't forget, all meals are included in your registration fee, from Friday dinner through Sunday lunch.

Please contact Program Chair Dan Lindley with questions about potential submissions and participation. Also, please indicate if you are willing to serve as a panel chair or discussant in your ISA proposal submission. Be sure to include your area of expertise.

This year’s conference will be held on the beautiful campus of the University of Notre Dame, from Friday November 4, late afternoon through Sunday November 6 at noon. Notre Dame/South Bend (SBN) is well served by airlines, is right off interstate 80/90, and is connected to downtown Chicago by commuter rail (NICTD). The main conference hotel is across the street from the conference facility.
