National Defense University WMD2020 (Virtual Event)
June 17 - June 18
This year’s Annual Symposium, “WMD 2020: Great Power Competition and Technology Challenges,” takes stock of the new imperatives driving defense planning. The emergence of great power competition comes at a time of rapid and globally-distributed technological innovation that increasingly shapes the strategic and operational threat environment. For those in the security community focused on WMD threats, the nexus of great power competition and dynamic new technologies is generating a shifting landscape of risk. As we kick-off our series of virtual 2020 symposium events on 17-18 June, please join us in exploring how the convergence of geopolitics and emerging technology will shape WMD issues such as: Great Power Nuclear Competition, Chemical Warfare Threats in Great Power Competition, Biotechnology and Defense Innovation, and Disinformation and WMD.
