This was the inaugural Submarine Science, Technology and Engineering Conference conducted by the SIA  in the series of Biennial Conference and was held in Adelaide, SA on 8-10 November 2011.

The Conference was opened by the Premier of South Australia, the Hon Jay Weatherill, MP and attracted an distinguished array of speakers from the public and private sectors around the world.

With a theme of 'The Future Submarine - Australia's Science, Technology and Engineering Challenge of the 21st Century', the conference marked the first time that the Institute had focussed on technical matters.  Copies of the Proceedings (containing all the technical papers refereed by a Technical Committee endorsed by Engineers Australia) are available as a separate item.
