Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson is hosting the 22nd International Seapower Symposium Sept. 21-23 at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island.
Senior representatives from more than 110 countries, including many of their senior-most navy and coast guard officers, are expected to attend this biennial event.
Sessions will be webcast on Navy Live and Adm. Richardson’s Facebook page.
In addition to CNO, speakers will include Secretary of the Navy Ray E. Mabus and Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Paul Zukunft.
First held in 1969, ISS has become the largest gathering of maritime leaders in history. The symposium provides a forum for senior international leaders to create and solidify solutions to shared challenges and threats in ways that are in the interests of individual nations.
