From the Foreword: "Each year, partners from academia and the military join to organize the Kingston Conference on International Security (KCIS). This conference is meant to inform debate and advance knowledge in the field of security and defense by identifying priorities in military affairs and convening world-class experts to engage with a series of research questions. [...] The 2015 KCIS, the 10th annual conference in this series, brought together academics and practitioners from the military, industry, nongovernmental organizations, and international institutions to discuss the challenges posed by robotics and autonomous systems to military operations. This publication is the first in a continuing series to capture the key ideas proffered at the KCIS. The papers presented in this publication provide insight into the drivers influencing strategic choices associated with robotic technology for military applications, and offer preliminary policy recommendations to advance a comprehensive technology investment strategy."
