The Future of Just War: Theoretical and Practical Challenges is an international academic conference to be held in October 2015 in Monterey, California.

The conference is hosted by the Defense Analysis Department at the Naval Postgraduate School with generous support from the Consortium for Robotics and Unmanned Systems Education and Research, and in collaboration with the Stockholm Centre for the Ethics of War and Peace and the National Science Foundation.

The conference will explore issues in the ethics of war, just war theory, the moral implications of the future and changing nature of warfare, and related issues.  The ethical implications of new, emerging, and future military technology — specifically cyberwarfare and unmanned and robotic weapons systems — will be the focus of several sessions.
