CALL FOR PAPERS FOR SUBMARINE CONFERENCE
A formal call for papers has been issued for Indo-Pacific’s leading forum on submarines, the annual Submarine Institute of Australia (SIA) conference.
This year’s conference – the 6th Submarine Science, Technology and Engineering Conference (SubSTEC6) – is scheduled to take place in Adelaide from 8-10 November 2021.
SIA Executive Director, David Nicholls said: “The Submarine Institute of Australia invites government agencies, defence industry, maritime academic research and industry organisations, as well as other individuals with appropriate credentials to submit a paper to be presented at our annual conference.
“The theme of this year’s conference – SubSTEC6, which is the SIA’s sixth technology-focused conference – is ‘Home-grown undersea technology: how can Australian academia and industry provide a capability edge?’.
“All approved papers are published by the SIA after the conference and this publication is one of the foremost of its type in the world for informing the development and sustainment of submarines, other under-water vehicles and the advancement of under-water technology more broadly.”
The deadline to submit abstracts (of no more than 250-300 words) is 28 May, while full papers for abstracts accepted must be submitted by 16 August.
“There are numerous different areas that papers may focus on, including – but not limited to – research and development, engineering and design, test/evaluation/integration, information management, Australian industry capability implementation/collaboration, training/education/recruitment/retention and workplace and workforce management,” Mr Nicholls said.
“Papers need not be limited to the conference theme. The SIA is encouraging organisations and individuals to consider submitting a paper, to be presented at the conference in Adelaide in November.”
