Conference: International Law and the Changing Character of War

The International Law Department of the Center for Naval Warfare Studies of the U.S. Naval War College will host a conference on "International Law and the Changing Character of War," June 22-24, 2010, in Newport, Rhode Island. The program is available here. Here's the idea:
The purpose of the conference is to examine the challenge to international law posed by the changing character of war. The objectives of the conference are to catalogue the extent to which existing international law governs these changing aspects of warfare and to assess whether these developments warrant revision of existing international law.
