The announcement of the AUKUS Agreement on 16 September 2021 agreeing to the acquisition by Australia of nuclear-powered submarines resulted in a radical shift in strategic planning for the furure Australian submarine force.

The Submarine Institute of Australia 11th Biennial Conference  will focus on the unique and unprecedented challenges for the Australian defence community associated with the decision to acquire and build nuclear-powered submarines.


The SIA invites Australian and international government agencies, maritime academic research and industry organisations to participate in the conference and to contribute presentations aligned with the conference theme of: 


Nuclear Powered Australian Submarines – Challenges and Opportunities 

The Call for Conference Presentaions closed on 31 July 2022.

The authors of all proposed conference presentations will be advised by 26 August of the acceptance or otherwise of their proposal.
