5th IMA International Conference on Influence and Conflict

Sunday, April 22, 2012 - 6:00pm to Wednesday, April 25, 2012 - 5:59pm

The conference topic brings to the fore the art of strategic communication (defined by Tatham as: 'A systematic series of sustained and coherent activities, conducted across strategic, operational and tactical levels, that enables understanding of target audiences, identifies effective conduits, and develops and promotes ideas and opinions through those conduits to promote and sustain particular types of behaviour'). It also demands the melding of ideas from a wide range of disciplines – naturally majoring upon mathematics but also including decision sciences, diplomacy and international relations, peace and war studies, anthropology and psychology, military and political science, linguistics and communication studies - whose practitioners and scholars presently engage with the influence and conflict.
