The U.S. Army Center of Military History is soliciting papers for the 2004 biennial Conference of Military Historians, to be held in Crystal City, Virginia 12-14 July 2004. The theme of the conference will be "Military Professionalism: the Quest for Excellence.” Collectively, historians will investigate the influence of military professionalism upon different military institutions. Possible subjects include shifting from conscription to an all-volunteer force, officer education and training, noncommissioned officer training, changes in dynamics between the military and civilian institutions, doctrine development, training development, staff procedures development, and the development of professional journals.
Each presentation should last 20 minutes - about 10 pages -, followed by 10 minutes of discussion. Participants will be limited to a total of 30 minutes including presentation and discussion. Should the Center of Military History decide to publish the conference papers presenters will have an opportunity to submit a longer formal paper for consideration.
There will be a participation fee of $45. Participants are expected to cover their travel and lodging expenses.
