Defence researchers, industry professionals and academics will converge on Adelaide in September for the International Conference on Science and Innovation for Land Power.

In conjunction with Land Forces 2018, DST is hosting the International Conference on Science and Innovation for Land Power 2018 (ICSILP 2018) to be held on 5-6 September in Adelaide.

The event is targeted at those interested in transforming the military land force through science, technology and innovation.

This year, the conference will focus on: Innovation through Technology Convergence for Land Power. The conference will address the question of how technology convergence, innovation and science can modernise land forces to become more agile and potent in the challenging environments of land operations, and survive and counter emerging physical, electronic and cyber threats.

They will be followed by a host of speakers on strategy, doctrine, technologies and issues, including Chief of Army Lieutenant General Richard Burr, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army for Defense Exports and Cooperation (USA) Anna Cataldo and the Head of Land Capability for the Australian Army, Major General Kathryn Toohey.
