Emerging technologies in public infrastructure conference

The 3rd Annual Emerging Technologies for Public Infrastructure Conference returns with the spotlight on ‘technologies-of-choice’ that are being deployed across regional councils, city hubs, and communities.

The two-day conference hosted by IPWEA will be held at the InterContinental Sydney on the 19 and 20 June, 2019.

An information-packed program will showcase best-practice case studies, as well as fresh news involving the NSW government’s policy and funding priorities.

Front-line practitioners will share grassroots projects that offer insights into emerging technologies and their impact on operations, asset management, service delivery, and planning processes.

The agenda includes more than 25 best practice case studies from regional and metro councils. These councils are taking a lead with the deployment of emerging technologies, both as early and new adopters of fully-integrated public works and engineering platforms.

Supported for the first time by a 16-point continuing professional development program, the conference will enable public works and engineering professionals to gain a deeper understanding of how technology can be leveraged to deliver on operational excellence.

The agenda draws on detailed program development research while showcasing the return on investment for emerging technologies.

These include the internet of things, big data and analytics, drones, robotics and automation, virtual and augmented reality, geographic information systems, machine-learning, as well as digital disruption.

The forum has support from senior executives across the three tiers of government, industry thought leaders, heads of projects, and subject matter experts that are driving innovation around public works and engineering.

The conference offers deeper insights into the way we design, develop and manage cities or regional areas, streamline citizen services, invest in forward planning for 21st century infrastructure, or manage government-funded assets.
