This colloquium brief summarizes the findings of the 20th Annual Strategy Conference, held April 14-16, 2009, at Carlisle Barracks. "This year's focus, 'Strategic Implications of Emerging Technologies,' was intended to look beyond the noted importance of advances in the field of cyber and information technologies to raise awareness of other technology areas which thus far have received less visibility. The conference explored biogenetics, biometrics, nanotechnologies, robotics, artificial intelligence, alternative energies, electromagnetic weaponry, nuclear power, and global warming." Panel topics included: Biotechnologies: Genetic Engineering and Molecular Biology; Nanotechnologies and National Security; Robotics and Contemporary/Future Warfare; Artificial Intelligence and Defense Strategy; Alternative Energies and America's Security; and Implications for Defense Policymakers.
