2018 RAAF Air Power Conference
2018 RAAF Air Power Conference
Date: March 2018 - Wednesday 21 March 2018
Location: National Convention Centre, Canberra ,

The Royal Australian Air Force will be conducting its biennial Air Power Conference on the theme of Air Power in a Disruptive World over the period 20-21 March 2018 at the National Convention Centre in Canberra.

The Conference attracts more than 1000 delegates drawn from national and international Air Forces and other military Services, Government, Defence Industry, academia and think tanks. The biennial Air Power Conference has grown into a regionally and internationally respected forum which has engaged a number of important and relevant air power themes.

The 2018 Conference will provide another opportunity for the defence and security community to come together to explore how air forces are able to fully shape and exploit strategy, tactics and technology within joint military, national security and coalition operations in the emergent security environment.

Led by top international and Australian experts, we will explore how geo-political strategy, environmental change and technology-based innovation are both disrupting and driving change across every level of national security. Some military organisations are well equipped to capitalise on disruption, whilst others struggle to define what the implications may be for their organisations. In this fast paced new world of innovation, increased global instability and new technology, we are seeking to offer a fresh perspective from which military forces might consider disruptors and drivers effecting that environment. 

Themes for the 2018 Air Power Conference viewed through the lens of air power, military and national strategy include:

  • AI, Cyber, Simulation
  • Energy, Climate and Nuclear Security
  • Geo-Political Interests and security policy
  • Space and Uninhabited Aerial Systems
  • Industry Collaboration
  • People, Machines and the military in the digital age
