The founding North American chapter of the International Society for Military Ethics (ISME) will host its annual meeting in Washington, D.C. on January 25th through 27th. The topic of this year’s conference is Ethics & Military Professionalism: Cyber Warfare and Other Conflicts. Randall Dipert, University of Buffalo Emeritus, will give a keynote address on Deterrence, Retaliation, Escalation and International Agreements in cyberwarfare. Philosophers, military professionals, academics, and others will gather to discuss this topic and other key issues in the field.
Case Western Reserve University recently became ISME’s home institution and we are proud to support this important organization. Several CWRU faculty members have participated in previous ISME conferences and CWRU students and faculty presented at the European ISME conference in May.
