As the government moves closer to deciding on Australia’s Future Submarine, this conference brought together senior policy-makers, high-level military officials, leading industry representatives and academics from Australia and around the world to discuss key aspects of what will arguably be the most expensive and technologically complex defence capability project in the history of the nation.

The goal of this conference was to share different perspectives on the Future Submarine's strategic, economic and industry dimensions with a view to informing government’s decision-making process. ASPI's international conference was a tremendous success, providing great networking opportunities and exposure for attendants to the ‘who’s who’ of the submarine world.
