The Royal Australian Navy’s Sea Power Centre - Australia, with the assistance of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of New South Wales at the Australian Defence Force Academy, hosted the fifth biennial King-Hall Naval History Conference on 24 July and 26-27 July 2007. This was a major international conference with distinguished speakers from Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. The keynote speaker was Professor NAM Rodger, author of the much acclaimed multi-volume A Naval History of Britain.

The conference program addressed the shifting demands facing both national and combined international sea power, together with case studies of command, control, communications and intelligence taken from the ancient world through to the 21st century. The conference offered new insights into the future face of maritime strategy, the changing nature of global connections, and the continuing nexus between communications and command at sea.
