28th October – Cambridge Baltic Conference 2017
The organisers are pleased to announce that Cambridge Baltic Conference (CBC) is back! The 5th conference, 'Security, Cyberwarfare and Populism', will take place at the Cambridge Union Society, 28th October, 2017. Also, in Sidney Sussex College Hall we will be hosting a formal dinner for speakers, professionals and students. Tickets are on sale and selling fast.
Cambridge University students from the Baltic states launched the first Cambridge Baltic Conference in 2013 to facilitate discussion on how the Baltic perspective could be valuable to the wider world. CBC 2017 aims to generate a nexus of ideas that will combine the knowledge, creativity and experience of students, the business community, politicians, security experts and academics from the United Kingdom, the Baltic states and beyond to tackle the new kinds of threats arising from increasingly sophisticated cyberwarfare, the new wave of populism, and the changing dynamics around NATO.
CBC organising team is looking forward to seeing you at CBC 2017.
