2017 Goldrick Seminar - Submarines Today and in the Future
UNSW Canberra at the
Australian Defence Force Academy campus,
Northcott Drive, Campbell, ACT 2600
The undersea environment is the most complex and challenging operating environment for Navies. This year's Goldrick Seminar will discuss these complexities and the new capabilities that will equip the Navy and other elements of the Australian Defence Force.
This seminar is being held jointly with the Submarine Institute Australia. The venue will be the Adams Auditorium at UNSW Canberra at the Australian Defence Force Academy campus.
Speakers will be drawn from senior levels of Defence, academia, industry and the media. The intention is for the proceedings to be both recorded and later published.
Registration, which includes morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea, is $50. Students can register for free.
