San Francisco Symposium

The annual San Francisco Symposium carries on a tradition originally launched in the 1980s by the U.S. Naval War College (USNWC) as a National Security Decision-Making Symposium. The intent has always been to illuminate the most pressing national security issues while showcasing USNWC thought leaders and experts for our West Coast trustees, members, and friends.

The 2023 symposium, China and Taiwan: Addressing the Challenges of Unification, is presented in partnership with the Silicon Valley Defense Group.
