New America and Arizona State University invite you to the 2018 Future of War Conference on April 9 in Washington, D.C. Leaders from government, military, journalism, academia, and the private sector will explore pressing issues in international security and defense, including:

  • What would a war with North Korea look like?
  • Do future conflicts require new Geneva Conventions?
  • How can the U.S. make sure it wins the cyber war of 2028?
  • After ISIS, what comes next in the Middle East?

This conference is one of the signature events of the Future of War project—a partnership between New America and Arizona State University—which brings together interdisciplinary experts working to develop new paradigms for understanding and addressing the changing character of war and systematic violence.
