What is MilCIS?

MilCIS is a unique opportunity for those investing in government and military communications and information systems.

In November each year, the Defence Chief Information Officer Group (CIOG) partners with the University of New South Wales, Canberra and the Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engineers (IEEE) to present MilCIS. The conference facilitates a continuing dialogue between Department of Defence employees, contractors, industry and researchers to discuss current and developing technological capabilities, project initiatives, and operational requirements.

In addition to keynote presentations, technical presentations, panel discussions and tutorials, MilCIS features an exposition that provides an opportunity for exhibitors to demonstrate new technologies and promote their products and services to attendees.

MilCIS is the only Australian conference that focuses strategically on the crucial technologies, products, systems and services associated with military communications and information systems.

MilCIS has two major components: The MilCIS Expo and the MilCIS Conference:

  • MilCIS Expo attendees must register to attend but have complimentary access to the MilCIS Exhibition Hall and to the MilCIS Expo presentations that run throughout the conference in the Royal Theatre. MilCIS Expo attendees DO NOT have access to the presentations in the conference parallel sessions, daily catering, nor the conference dinner.
  • MilCIS Conference delegates pay the relevant conference registration fee and have full access to all conference presentations (five parallel streams including the Expo presentations in the Royal Theatre), daily breakfast and lunch product sessions, the exhibition hall, daily conference morning/afternoon teas and lunches, and the conference dinner.
