Event description

Description

This seminar series has been established to honour the contribution of Air Marshal Sir James Rowland, the first engineering officer to serve as Chief of the Air Staff (1976-79) and a major contributor to Australian thinking on the strategic use of air power. The specific aim of the seminars is a broadened understanding of the origins, evolution, application and depiction of air power in the national interest.

In addition to established scholars and practitioners, the convenors are keen to support presentations by post-graduate students, early career researchers, industry leaders, policy advisers and uniformed personnel of the ADF.
