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.
