MAST Asia 2015 Conference Themes Set - Japan's First-Ever Defence Symposium and ExhibitThe overarching theme for MAST Asia 2015 will be “Security at Sea in a Dynamic World,” acknowledging that this MAST in Asia will be Japan’s first-ever international naval defence and maritime security conference and exhibition, as well as a defence-oriented event.
The recent removal of its weapons/arms export and development trade restrictions; and, increasing demand for cooperation among its neighbouring nations (and the West!), has already raised expectations for a large number of presentations and participants from Japan as well as around the globe.
Technical and strategic presentations to leading security / defence technologists and operators from Asia / RoW on highly-innovative solutions in both the conference and exhibition. This event has support from all corners of the Japanese Defence Establishment, including the prestigious Defense Technology Foundation.
Embracing Japan’s renown spirit of advancing and pioneering a myriad of technologies, this - the thirteenth edition of MAST - will add a fourth domain to its current Undersea, Surface, and Air & Space disciplines...the new Cyberspace/Cross-Cutting Technologies domain will encourage more engineers to join the ranks of MAST presenters, for instance those specialising in: Autonomy; Web-based Applications and Technologies; Nano-Technologies; and, even Wear-able Technologies.
The Official Call for Papers will be announced next month; but, enthusiastic authors can upload their abstract(s) directly to the MAST Technical Conference Committee now.
