The theme of this year's conference is "Military Deception and the Art of the Stratagem." Papers may focus on this aspect of the military history (and literature) of China or any other East Asian country, from antiquity to the present, and comparative work is also welcome. As usual, papers on other subjects related to the military history of East Asia will be considered as well.

The time and place of the 2014 CMHS conference were chosen to facilitate participants' attendance at the 2014 conference of the Society for Military History (SMH), which will be held at the Westin Crown Center in Kansas City, Missouri, from April 3 to 6 (with panels beginning on Friday, April 4). Although there is no registration fee for the CMHS meeting, attendance at the SMH conference requires separate registration and payment of applicable fees. For detailed information about the 2014 SMH conference, please visit <>.

CMHS conference attendees will be eligible for the SMH rate for hotel rooms provided they register to attend the SMH as well.

If you are interested in presenting at the CMHS conference, please send  your name and contact information, a paper abstract of no more than 250 words, and a brief C.V. to David Graff by November 1, 2013.
