The Finnish National Defence University (FNDU) is pleased to host the Virtual ISMS Annual Conference 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions caused by it, FNDU has created a virtual platform for the conference instead having "physical" conference .


The theme of the conference is "Military Science vs. Open Sciences". With the theme, we would like to encourage the authors and other participants of the conference to challenge their preconceptions about how, why, on what and for whom we do research on the area of military sciences.

  • 13-26 October, working groups (registered authors and attendees) have offline (asynchronous) phase in Virtual meeting rooms led by WG Chairs. Participants can view abstracts, give comments, ask questions, and contribute in each working group.
  • 27-29 October, there will be an online virtual conference (registered authors and attendees) including plenary sessions on a video teleconferencing platform (Zoom), parallel working group sessions in virtual meeting rooms, and social meeting forums. 
Additionally there are Business meetings on 29 October.
