This event is invitation only with select faculty and staff.

The purpose of the International Seapower Symposium (ISS) is to provide a forum for senior international naval leaders to discuss common maritime challenges and opportunities to enhance international maritime security cooperation. These officers spend three days discussing these issues and listening to a select group of distinguished speakers.

ISS is unique because it is the only forum in the world that brings together the heads of so many navies at the same time to enhance maritime security and collaborative operations. Discussions at ISS have resulted in many successful efforts to enhance cooperation in countering piracy, providing humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, coordinating search and rescue at sea including submarine rescue, planning and conducting coalition military operations and joint law enforcement to counter arms, drug and human trafficking as well as fisheries and pollution violations.
