Call For Papers


Call For Papers

With the continued pressures on defence budgets, the ability to develop and operate seamlessly interconnected programmes is a key strategic advantage. The Manufacturing Hub Theatre on the show floor provides a valuable opportunity to showcase the latest innovations in networked multi-domain approaches.

DSEI 2021 welcomes the submission of presentations and demos that promote the unique technical or conceptual aspects of new products, products in development, or services that fit this years theme.

To submit a speaking proposal, please complete the online form. You will need to include the topic title, a brief synopsis, and an explanation of how your topic fits into the DSEI 2021 theme. The call for papers will remain open until the 4th of June 2021, with successful submissions then being selected later that month.

2021 Theme: Multi Domain Integration

In early 2020 the UK Government launched a full strategic defence and security review, known as the Integrated Review, to define the UK’s global role and long-term strategic aims for security and foreign policies. A key focus of the Integrated Review is the coordination between all government and defence forces, from end to end of the supply chain, to maximise capabilities and information advantage. This focus – called Multi Domain Integration – will form the backbone of DSEI 2021.
