The conference provides a unique forum for leading Army officers, Defence researchers, industry professionals and academics to discuss the latest developments, and future directions, in defence, science, technology and innovation.

This year's conference will address the question of how technology convergence, innovation and science can modernise land forces to become more agile and potent in the challenging environments of land operations, and survive and counter emerging physical, electronic and cyber threats.

The event is targeted at those interested in transforming the military land force through science, technology and innovation. A main attraction at this year's ICSILP panel discussion will be 'The Future Soldier', which will be facilitated by Brigadier David Wainwright, Director-General Future Land Warfare.

The panel discussion will include visual representations of soldier combat ensembles for these time horizons and presentations on how industry can engage with the Department of Defence on innovative land force advancements.
