The 3rd International Seminar on Strategy of National Security and Development of Science & Technology
（The 3rd ISST）
Since 21st century，space and cyberspace have become new frontiers of strategic studies. Nowadays，international terrorism has brought severe challenges to national security，and globalization as well as its derived security issues has become increasingly complex and implicative of each other. National University of Defense Technology (NUDT) will hold the 3rd International Seminar on Strategy of National Security and Development of Science & Technology (a brief introduction to former ISSTs attached) on 17-18 June, 2013 in Changsha China, to celebrate NUDT’s 60th birthday anniversary.

Ø Space and Cyberspace Strategic Resource Exploration and Utilization
Activities of this seminar will mainly include: opening ceremony, keynote speeches, session discussions, roundtable discussions, campus visit (Tianhe super computer, Robots show, etc.) and hometown visit of former Chairman Mao Zedong. There are academic scholars and pundits from prestigious think tanks, universities and industries coming from home and abroad to the last two ISSTs. With their interests and supports, we have strong confidence to turn serial ISSTs into excellent platforms for ideas exchange on security and strategic studies in the perspective of technology development.

We will select some excellent award papers and publish a symposium in Chinese as well as in English after the seminar.
