Accelerating cross-domain autonomy – 15 June 2022
Following the success of the Trusted Autonomous Systems Symposium in Townsville in 2021, TAS will be hosting the 2022 Symposium in Brisbane on Wednesday 15 June with the theme ‘Accelerating cross-domain autonomy’. Last year proved an excellent opportunity to discuss RASAI across defence, research, industry, and regulator perspectives and we expect this to continue in 2022.

Networking Function (1700)
To simplify travel arrangements, this is a single day event with a Symposium Dinner. All sessions will occur at the landmark location Customs House. Registrations are available through this link. There will be a limit of 200 attendees. The Symposium is not being conducted for profit and the low registration fee is to meet delivery outgoings. Registrants with an @defence.gov.au email may use the discount code DEFENCE (also 20%) until the available tickets are sold.
- Full day delegate registration, including networking reception and dinner – $990.00 +GST
- Day delegate registration, excluding networking reception and dinner $850.00 +GST
- NB – From 17 May the option for virtual registration has been rescinded due to strong preferences from registrants for physical attendance. Virtual delivery will be supported for presenters to ensure continuity if their travel abilities change.
Travel and accommodation
There are a range of affordable hotels near Customs House for those travelling to the Symposium. Queensland venue requirements necessitate double COVID vaccination for physical attendance. Should there be any changes to the delivery due to COVID, registrations are not refundable but will be converted to a virtual registration. Current Queensland Government advice on COVID is available here.
Pre-Symposium workshop on Thinking Swarms
For parties that submitted an abstract and EOI for the Thinking Swarms Workshops, these will be held preceding the Symposium on June 13 and 14. This will be a separate registration and there is a small additional fee to cover administrative costs equivalent to an academic workshop. The workshop is designed for nominated participants rather than observers. We look forward to interacting with you in June.
