Dear Friend:

We are pleased to share with you that Theresa Hitchens will address "China's ASAT Programme and Global Security/US Space Security Milieu" at the ICAS Winter Symposium 2007 on February 13, 2007 in Washington DC.

Editor of Defense News from 1998 to 2000, Theresa has had a long career in journalism, with a focus on military, defense industry and NATO affairs. Her time at Defense News included five years as the newspaper's first Brussels bureau chief, from 1989 to 1993. From 1983 to 1988, she worked at Inside Washington Publishers on the group's environmental and defense-related newsletters, covering issues from nuclear waste to electronic warfare to military space.

Theresa has had a long interest in security policy and politics, having served internships with Sen. John Glenn, D-Ohio, and with the NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Brussels. Most recently, she was director of research at the British American Security Information Council, a think tank based in Washington and London.

Besides her duties as CDI director, Theresa leads CDI's Space Security Project. The author of "Future Security In Space: Charting a Cooperative Course," she also continues to write on space and nuclear arms control issues for a number of outside publications. Theresa serves on the editorial board of The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, and is a member of Women in International Security and the International Institute for Strategic Studies.

Other confirmed speakers include Kim R Holmes (Vice President for Foreign Policy and Defense, and Director of the Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Institute for International Studies, The Heritage Foundation) and confirmed discussants are Dennis P Halpin (ICAS Fellow; Professional Staff, US House International Relations Committee), Michael Marshall (Editor-in-Chief, United Press International Washington Bureau Chief) and Larry Niksch (ICAS Fellow; Specialist in Asian Affairs, Congressional Research Service, Library of Congress).

Thank you.
