About China Maritime Studies Institute Conferences
Typically lasting two days, our CMSI conferences happen on a periodic basis and bring together academic experts, policy makers, and practitioners for panel discussions and presentations that focus on selected aspects of Chinese maritime development and the international security environment.
These conferences serve to stimulate focused research and foster dialogue among Chinese and American specialists resulting in enhanced understanding and continued productive research and analysis on focus areas. Although short in duration, the annual CMSI conferences provide a lasting impact on research that informs leaders and policy makers.
Past conferences have addressed topics ranging from China’s shipbuilding program and its evolving surface fleet to the nation’s Far East operations, their ongoing strategy in the region, and the maritime implications of a strong Chinese navy.
