The Defence Human Sciences Symposium (DHSS) is the principal Australian forum for those interested in the application of human sciences research to enhance Defence capability.



The 2019 Defence Human Sciences Symposium will include a number of keynote speakers as well as presentations.

The theme for this year's symposium is "Human Sciences Impact for the Warfighter".

Defence is dependent on government departments like Defence Science and Technology, private sector organisations and universities to conduct research and development activities that ultimately affect the way that that Defence fulfils its roles and missions. Having an impact in tomorrow's complex Defence environment will be a key challenge for human sciences because of the complex nature of modern operations.
