2018 NZDIA Forum
2018 NZDIA Forum
Date: October 2018 - Thursday 1 November 2018
Location: Central Energy Trust Arena, Palmerstone North ,

The 2018 NZDIA Forum is our 21st forum. We aim to bring together industry (local, regional and international) and a wider range of government interests than has been achieved previously. The NZDIA forum has, for 20 years, been the most important event on NZ soil for defence and industry to come together. This year we are creating the opportunity and space for a wider cross-section of the industry: local, Australasian and global with a broader interest in national security encompassing defence, to come together.  The speaking and workshop programme is coming together as we identify how best to deliver excellent value to our traditional constituency and new attendees.  There will be something for everyone in the programme, in the exhibition space and in the networking breaks.

Date: Tuesday 4 - Thursday 6 December 2018
Location: Melbourne
The Australian Society for Operations Research (ASOR) has more than 400 members nationwide and is expanding.

The conference will be held in Melbourne jointly with the Australian Defence Operations Research Symposium (DORS). For the 2018 ASOR/DORS Conference, we welcome papers in all areas of Operations Research, including, but not limited to, data analytics, decision analysis, mathematical programming, optimisation, scheduling, simulation, and stochastic models, applied to defense, transportation, risk analysis, project management, artificial intelligence, telecommunications and others. The conference includes two types of submissions: Extended Abstracts and Full Papers. Each extended abstract and full paper will be refereed by at least two members of the organising committee. All extended abstracts will be published on the conference CD, and full papers will be published by Springer.

The theme for this year's symposium is "Minder, Mentor, Minion, Mate: Warfighter roles in Future Complex Systems". Defence has long recognised the capability advantage that teams provide over individual effort across the Defence domains (Land, Sea, Air, Joint). The study of human teams and the degree to which knowledge about human teams generalises to the opportunities and challenges presented by teams of human and non-human agents are therefore of critical importance.

HPRnet is a broader enabler that bridges these and other human sciences communities. HPRnet is an established network of universities that draws together multidisciplinary teams from around the country who are co-invested in the delivery of significant outcomes for Defence, underpinned by world class science. In addition to specific outcomes, the network aims to establish a broader national capability that has the breadth and capacity to meet Defence's needs in the future. The annual HPRnet Symposium provides an opportunity for members of the network, and those with an interest in human performance, to hear the latest developments in human performance research for the military.

BMT’s Submarine Design and Engineering Course presents attendees with the latest thinking and innovations in submarine design and operations. The course provides students with a complete understanding of conventional submarine technology, and our experienced presenters explain how capability requirements and new technologies can impact overall submarine design and management. This course caters to students with both technical and non-technical backgrounds, providing an understanding of the military capability in conventional submarines and the considerations in the defence acquisition process. For those delegates with an engineering background, the course will also investigate how to apply practical approaches to solving technical challenges. Attendees will become part of an elite group of alumni, providing excellent networking opportunities and ongoing support from the submarine community. The course is also accredited by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects.
