IPWEA NSW announces Public Infrastructure Conference agenda

Planning for IPWEA NSW’s 3rd Annual Emerging Technologies in Public Infrastructure Conference is off to a great start, with industry stakeholders confirming their attendance to discuss and debate the design, development and management of 21st century infrastructure.

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

Over two information-packed days (19 – 20 June) attendees will benefit from 25+ practitioner case studies that feature both 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.

Local council perspectives

The case studies with include the City of Sydney, Wellington City Council (NZ), City of Wagga Wagga, Ku-ring-Gai Council, City of Canterbury Bankstown, Wollongong City Council and the Georges River Council.

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 and digital disruption.

Innovations in public works and engineering

The June forum has galvanised 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 forum 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 and manage government-funded assets.

The agenda also offers timely insights into the NSW government’s spending priorities on infrastructure.

The 2018-19 Budget represents the largest ever infrastructure commitment by a state government to meet the needs of the people of New South Wales now and into the future.
