16th International Mine Warfare Technology Symposium (Hybrid)

EXCITING NEW CHANGES AND EXPANSIONS! The 16th International Mine Warfare Technology Symposium proudly announces its new venue at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina, situated at 1380 Harbor Island Drive, San Diego, CA 92101. This move to San Diego is aimed at harnessing the city's dynamic atmosphere to foster greater participation and innovation in the field of naval mine warfare.

This year’s symposium is designed to be a comprehensive platform for professionals from various sectors, including platform-based mine warfare operations, advanced undersea warfare systems, homeland defense, environmental research and development, operational data management, communications, and more.

In collaboration with our U.S. Navy and foreign mine warfare partners, we are setting the stage for a symposium that not only continues our tradition of unclassified, globally inclusive discussions but also elevates the discourse to new heights. To encourage a rich exchange of knowledge and experiences, active duty military personnel will be granted free access, enriching our community with their invaluable perspectives.
