Call for Presentations for the Historical Analysis Annual Conference (HAAC), 27-29 September 2022

Want to make a call for presentations for the Historical Analysis Annual Conference (HAAC) in Tysons Corner in September 2022.

Anyone interested in making what they feel is a useful and relevant contribution should email me at or call me at (703) 289-0007.

We do not require any formal paper or publication to support such a presentation. The presentations should be planned to be completed within 45 minutes, giving us time for 15 minutes of discussion.

We are looking for presentations from academia, think tanks, defense companies, the armed services or private individuals that are related to historical analysis of military affairs. I do have a bias towards quantitative historical analysis but reman open-minded towards anything of value.

I will probably be accepting requests for presentations up through the end of August, when for practical purposes I will need to finalize the schedule. We prefer the presentations to be in person, but we have arranged for at least one virtual presentation.

We do give a $60 discount to the fee for the conference to presenters. While it would be nice to cover people’s travel expenses and pay honorariums to the presenters, this is the first such conference and I am funding it out of my own pocket. I guess I could charge more for the conference to allow for this; but instead, I limited the charges just to cover the expenses of the conference rooms.
