CMSS Master's student, Keith Hickerson will be attending the 2017 International Society of Military Sciences conference this November 15-17 in Oslo, Norway.

The conference will primarily focus on the role that science and education play in preparing military organizations to engage in operations. However, it will include a wide range of topics intended to appeal to individuals interested in the study of modern militaries. 

Keith, a second year course-based student, will be attending the conference and presenting his research paper on the legal and ethical implications of employing lethal autonomous weapons systems in modern conflicts. This presentation intends to make policy-makers re-evaluate the degree to which militaries should relegate complex tasks to machines.
