The Eleventh Summer Workshop on Analysis of Military Operations and Strategy (SWAMOS), was held on the Cornell University campus on July 8-27, 2007. The three directing faculty included Richard Betts of Columbia University and SIWPS, Stephen Biddle of the U.S. Army War College, and Barry Posen of Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
