In recent years, the BCMH has taken a number of specific measures to encourage scholars in the early stages of their careers. It hosts an annual one day New Research in Military History Conference – the Conference at the Royal Air Force Museum London in September 2015 was the sixth such event. These have proven to be very popular amongst those wishing to explore with others topics that are the subject of their current studies. At an international level the BCMH supports applications from postgraduate students wishing to speak at the International Congress of Military History held annually.
The New Researchers Conference 2016 will be held at the Institute of Historical Research (IHR) in London on Saturday 26 November. The Call for Papers is to be found on the Events page New Researchers 2016.
