This conference is nearly sold out. Tickets for Bonus Technical Papers Session on Monday 14 November extended. Catering for registrations made after Thursday 10 November cannot be guaranteed.
The 8th SIA Biennial Conference will be held at the Shine Dome in Canberra over two and a half days with a wide range of issues addressed that reflect the theme of the Conference: From Collins to the Future Submarine - The challenge of Sustaining an Effective Submarine Capability. In a year where the Government has selected DCNS as its design partner for the Future Submarine, the Conference acts as a pivotal week in the submarine calendar. The program includes an Opening Reception, a Conference Dinner and two and a half days of high quality presentations from the cream of the submarine community.
To start the registration, select 'Tickets' and, if appropriate, a promotional code (see below). On the next page, you can select multiple instances of each ticket and allocate those tickets to individuals in the section that follows. Note that any discount is applied at the selection of ticket not at the checkout.
The SIA offers a number of discounts. These are only applied to Registration Fees, not to the Full Conference Package.
