Annual Symposium

The NSL Annual Symposium & Industry Update is traditionally accepted by DoD as a Widely Attended Gathering, enabling Active Duty attendance. Presentations are made by Submarine Force leadership with updates on major acquisition and programmatic issues. Active Duty panels provide additional insight into the experiences and needs of today’s submariners. Industry and government agencies present technical papers, discussions, and solutions via exhibit displays. There are continuous opportunities for Navy leadership and Industry networking.

2023 Registration Information

Online registration will close on Friday 11/3, but will be available onsite.

The NSL Annual Symposium and Industry Update has traditionally qualified as a Widely Attended Gathering. This is not a DOD endorsement of the event. DOD personnel may attend business sessions at no cost if their agency determines that their presence at the Symposium is in the best interests of their agency.  DOD personnel should consult with their supervisor or ethics advisor.
If you are Active Duty or a government civilian employee (not a contractor) and you plan to attend the buffet, luncheon, and/or banquet, register and pay using the MEMBER or NON-MEMBER links below.  If you plan to attend only the business sessions, there is no charge, but you must register using one of the links below.
