As most readers doubtless know, the Naval Institute has numerous outlets for content in addition to Proceedings , whether it be our sister publication Naval History , the USNI News site, our robust blog, or the venerable Naval Institute Press. But the one that we share a unique relationship with is our conferences branch. Many a Proceedings article over the years has provided the inspiration for a panel session at a subsequent conference. Indeed, one can say that the pages of Proceedings “come to life” at these events. But sometimes it works the other way around, too, with comments made during a panel giving impetus to an article.
