DMTC 2020 Annual Conference

DMTC’s 2020 Annual Conference will be held on 11-12 March at The Realm Hotel in Canberra.

Our Annual Conference and Awards Dinner has become a key event for the DMTC community, providing the opportunity to highlight the relevance of our work in the context of developing sovereign industrial capabilities within the defence industry sector.

The 2020 conference is expected to feature keynote presentations from prominent Defence and industry guest speakers, and include outlines of the technological challenges and priorities across the defence and national security sectors.

More details will be available here as they are released.



The Fine Print

Numbers are strictly limited and will be managed on an invite-only basis, with preference given to DMTC project team members and partner representatives.  Some presentations may include DMTC-in-confidence technical details. For both of these reasons a public call for registrations will not be made, however expressions of interest in attending can be submitted and may result in you receiving an invitation to attend.

Support from our sponsors

DMTC gratefully acknowledges the support we have received from a number of organisations in making the 2020 Annual Conference a reality.

The event is held in conjunction with our partners Defence Science Institute (DSI) and the Research Training Centre for Naval Design  & Manufacturing (RTCNDM) at the Australian Maritime College.

The conference is designed to give PhD and Masters candidates the opportunity to professionally present their work to peers. It is a great opportunity to network with other PhD candidates in the Defence sector. Question and answer sessions follow each presentation and we encourage industry participants and supervisors to attend and ask questions of the students.
