From the US Naval War College:

Ladies & Gentlemen:

The United States Naval War College International Law Department and United States Cyber Command are pleased to announce the “Cyber War and International Law” conference scheduled for 25-27 June 2012. The conference will be held in the McCarty-Little Hall auditorium at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island. The following information is provided for those who wish to attend.

ELIGIBILITY: Conference attendance is open to U.S. and international military members, government officials, civilians filling teaching or research positions at academic institutions, and representatives of nongovernmental organizations active in the field of conflict studies. Interested participants who do not fall within these categories may email me to be placed on a waiting list.

WEBSITE: The conference website may be found by navigating to

REGISTRATION: On-line registration is available via the above website. **Seating is limited** Please register only if you are sure you can attend. In the event your plans change, please let me know as soon as possible so we can make your seat available to another interested party. [Conference speakers, panelists, and moderators do not need to register]

AGENDA: The website contains the draft agenda. Please be advised that speakers, topics, and times in the agenda are subject to change.

TRAVEL & LODGING: It is very important that you arrange your lodging in advance. Newport is a popular summer vacation destination. As such, lodging will fill quickly. Department of Defense ID card holders and those travelling on U.S. Government orders are eligible for on-base lodging at the Naval Gateway Inns and Suites (formally the CBQ) and the Navy Lodge. However, these rooms are difficult to obtain given the increased population of resident military students aboard Naval Station Newport. If you are eligible for on-base quarters and wish to reside aboard the installation, I recommend you call early and call often. We have blocked hotel rooms at a number of off-base hotels. These hotels will provide rooms for conference participants at or near the U.S. Government rate. The conference information sheet on the website provides lodging options and travel information.

CONFERENCE EXPENSES: There is no conference fee. However, meals, refreshments, travel, and lodging are the responsibility of individual participants. Coffee, water, and other refreshments will be made available for sale during the conference. Dining venues are in walking distance of the auditorium.

BASE ACCESS: Naval Station Newport and the Naval War College are secure military facilities. Participants should be aware that they may be to security screening as a condition of entry.

CONTINUING LEGAL EDUCATION (CLE) CREDIT: The Naval War College does not coordinate CLE credit for lawyers attending the conference.

Further administrative information will be provided to registered participants via electronic mail as we get closer to the conference dates. In the meantime, do not hesitate to contact me or Ms. Jayne Van Petten at if you have any questions.
