The deadline to submit papers for the conference at UDT 2019 is December 1 2018.
UDT is a peer reviewed conference for the international Underwater Defence and Security technical community. Technical, policy and concept development papers from across the research and development community are welcomed, along with those from the defence and security military and other user communities.
Presentations or papers focused solely on the promotion of a product or service are considered inappropriate; papers that promote the unique technical or conceptual aspects of new products, products in development, or services are considered appropriate.
Papers are provisionally accepted on the basis of a short outline abstract. Acceptance to the conference is conditional on authors providing an extended abstract, paper and advance copies of their presentation slides.
UDT 2019 will be in Stockholm and the conference will consider the key issues faced by countries as they address their needs in the global underwater defence and security environment.
The conference will be organised around six main themes for papers. These themes are Platform Design; Sensors and Processing; Weapon and Payload Systems; Unmanned, Remotely Piloted and Autonomous Systems; Operational Drivers and Imperatives; and Exploitation of Commercial and New Technologies.
When submitting their abstract, authors will be required to identify which theme their abstract falls under and the most relevant core domain which their submission addresses and submit an abstract of 250 to 500 words that summarises the key elements of their paper.
In the abstract authors should include an introduction and background, the technical approach and methods, as well as innovations and research findings, lessons learned, benefits to the UDT audience and what they can expect to take-away and conclusions. Abstract submissions must include 50-word author biographies and authors accepted to participate in the conference will be notified by email.
Authors should submit abstracts by using the form provided on the UDT website.
