#ISMS17 9th annual conference in Oslo

​The International Society of Military Sciences (ISMS) staged the the 9th annual ISMS Conference in Oslo, 15–17 November 2017.  The hosting institution was Norwegian Defence University College (NDUC). 

The #ISMS17 conference saught to increase the value of the ISMS to the military organisations and their educational institutions. At the faculty level, ISMS wanted to improve its visibility to teaching and research staff, and highlight their role as disseminator of knowledge. 

This year’s conference explored the value of science in military education by asking: Military Sciences – The Backbone of Military Educational Institutions? 

Almost 150 participants, from more than 25 nations across five continents attended the conference, signifying the value and importance of ISMS. The scientific programme was composed of more than 100 presentations in 23 oral panels and a poster session divided among the nine ISMS Working Groups.
