This year’s CIOR Seminar on IS brought together a diverse audience and speakers from a wide range of subjects and professions, allowing for energetic discussions in which opinions were constructively challenged and scrutinised.
This traditional CIOR Seminar atmosphere and the introduction of small-group workshops was designed to offer an environment which merged diverse perspectives of NATO member conferees to address an issue of great contemporary importance.
The current Seminar-survey shows that these goals were met: 100 percent of the survey’s participants rated this year’s topic as highly relevant, and three quarters considered this year’s seminar to be excellent. The evolved schedules – allowing for more frequent breaks in which to further discuss and digest the presentations – and the introduction of smaller workshops were widely seen as welcome additions to the seminar.
This positive evaluation was shared by the speakers – 90 percent of whom would like to stay in touch with the seminar.
