IUS Canada Conference 2014 Call for Papers

What’s Keeping You Awake at Night? Current Research Trends in Defence and National Security

The 2014 IUS Canada Conference will be held in Ottawa, Ontario from October 17-19. This year’s conference will focus on the valuable contributions to defence and security in national and international contexts by researchers in a variety of governmental, academic, military and other settings. Fiscal restraint has imposed limits on research globally, suggesting that the topics that continue to receive research attention are of such high importance that they continue despite financial and other restrictions on research activities. IUS Canada 2014 will provide an opportunity to bring together a diverse array of research initiatives for discussion and cross-fertilization that will enhance awareness of ongoing research, and encourage the broad dissemination of the best ideas currently on the research agenda of multiple nations.

The IUS Expands to Social Media

The IUS has expanded our online presence by setting up accounts on each of the main social networks. From Twitter and Facebook to Google+ and LinkedIn, the IUS's new social media initiative will notify you of all IUS updates. In addition to news from the IUS, we're going to be working to use each of these hubs to allow IUS Fellows to meet and sustain the kind of professional relationships that make Fellowship such a worthwhile pursuit.

Social networking allows organizations like the IUS to continue the conference experience to our membership through the entire year by providing discussion platforms for research, opportunities, and conversation. With the addition of a YouTube account, we'll also be able to make video content available.

There's no need to follow every account; information will be shared across all platforms while continuing to be posted here on the IUS website. Add the IUS on your preferred network and you'll start connecting with your peers instantaneously.
