DHSS 2023 Call For Abstracts

In this section...

The Defence Human Sciences Symposium (DHSS) is the principal Australian forum for those interested in the application of human sciences research to enhance Defence capability.

DHSS 2023 will be co-hosted by Queensland University of Technology and the Department of Defence, with event management partners Deakin University Events, from 05-06 December at QUT's Gardens Point campus.

The theme for DHSS 2023 is "Research in action: From the lab to the battlefield". Defence's Science and Technology Strategy 2030 and the Defence Strategic Review 2023 highlight the importance of delivering impact and a capability edge through innovation. Great ideas will be transformed into innovative solutions, through national and international partnerships between Defence, academia, and industry. DHSS 2023 will provide a forum for delegates from academia, industry, and Defence to showcase human sciences, health and performance research and how its impact on Defence capability can be accelerated.
