Brécourt Academic and Mercyhurst University's Ridge College of Intelligence Studies and Applied Sciences, in association with Global War Studies, are pleased to announce an international conference on "Intelligence and the Second World War." Held in conjunction with the Intelligence Community Forum (ICF), the conference will bring together scholars and students and will endeavor to promote an interdisciplinary and international study of intelligence and intelligence-related issues in the 1919–1945 period (and beyond) by means of drawing upon the latest scholarship from a variety of disciplines. The conference will also serve as a forum for historians to discuss and debate the ever-expanding field of intelligence and global conflict studies.

Papers dealing with one or more of the following topics are welcome and while intelligence is the focus, papers and panels covering other related topics or taking thematic approaches are equally encouraged: Counterintelligence; Espionage; Signals Intelligence; Science & Technology; Special Operations; Prisoners of War; Cryptology; Resistance Movements; Alliance Politics; Intelligence and Air Power; Industry; Naval Intelligence; Human Intelligence; Asymmetric Warfare; Deception Operations.

Paper proposals must be submitted by 15 March 2020 and must include a brief (200 words or less) one-paragraph abstract and a one-page curriculum vitae. Panel proposals are welcome and should include a brief description of the panel's theme.
