64th IMTA Conference: Sydney, Australia

Ethical Considerations for Future Warfare – Challenges across the Military Life Cycle.

Where and when

The 64th annual IMTA Conference will be held in Sydney, Australia, between 14-17 October 2024 – with Friday the 18th reserved for optional excursions, at the at the Pullman Hyde Park Hotel, located at 36 College St, Darlinghurst, NSW. ( https://www.pullmansydneyhydepark.com.au/ ). Registration via the Whova platform is now open (see URLs below) and the IMTA Sydney organising committee is delighted to invite you to join us for this exciting event.


The theme for this year’s conference is “Ethical Considerations for Future Warfare – Challenges across the Military Life Cycle.” This is an intentionally broad them to include every aspect of military psychology, from recruitment and selection, through training and performance, to determining the ethics of artificial intelligence, to considering the effect of modern workplaces on social relationships and mental health. The military is a complex, integrated system, increasingly reliant on technology. Nevertheless, at its heart it is still about people and how they adapt to systems, processes and change. We believe the focus of the 64th IMTA conference could not be more relevant to where the world finds itself right now, and we hope you will join us for what will be an important discussion for the profession.
