WA Indo-Pacific Defence Conference 2018
WA Indo-Pacific Defence Conference 2018
Date: October 2018 - Tuesday 30 October 2018
Location: Crown Towers, Perth ,

While the trend toward an increasingly integrated Indo-Pacific was initially viewed from the perspective of economics, trade and energy flows, it is increasingly apparent that the rise of the Indo-Pacific era also has major implications for national defence and regional security.

The 2018 Western Australian Indo-Pacific Defence Conference will convene strategic thinkers from the military, industry, academic and government in Perth Australia, home to Australia’s largest naval base, a growing defence industry, and a vibrant civic and academic community.

Defence West in the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation in partnership with the Perth USAsia Centre at The University of Western Australia will convene the 2018 Western Australian Indo-Pacific Defence Conference. This event will examine the broader geo-strategic environment of the Indo-Pacific and the important role Australia will continue to play in the region via its expertise in defence capability and resources. We also hope to showcase regional opportunities to WA-based industries, as well as national and international stakeholders.
 
This conference will promote the State’s defence capability to national and international defence stakeholders. The aim is to provide new and relevant information from high-level speakers to educate and inspire our local industry, and to assist them in becoming world class and globally competitive (export ready).

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.
