New America and Arizona State University invite you to the fifth annual Future Security Forum (formerly the Future of War Conference) on April 29, 2019 in Washington, D.C. At this conference, leaders from government, academia, journalism, the military, and the private sector will explore pressing issues in international security and defense. Panel topics include:

  • What will the military be doing in space in 2030?
  • What is the future of proxy warfare?
  • How do we defend ourselves against the cyber warriors of the future?

This conference is one of the signature events of the Future of War project—a New America and Arizona State University partnership working to develop new paradigms for understanding and addressing the changing nature of armed conflict and systematic violence.

Please note that the schedule is subject to change.
