The International Symposia on Next Generation Infrastructure (ISNGI) will hold it’s fifth event in London on September 11-13.
This year’s ISNGI will bring together the best and sharpest minds from industry, government and academia to help commence this co-ordinated global infrastructure research program, focussed on long term infrastructure and land use planning, and to create not only best practice benchmarks but new knowledge to better inform strategies for long term prosperity.
Four of the SMART Infrastructure team will attend and present at this year’s event.
SMART director Professor Pascal Perez will be giving a keynote speech on Smart Cities, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly as well as sitting on a panel discussion around delivery of infrastructure systems and services.
The progress of the Digital Living Lab will also be the subject of a talk by the SMART chief operating officer, Tania Brown.
Dr Ricardo Peculis will present two papers at the conference. One focussed around System of Systems Integrity, addressing one of the challenges presented during the operation of complex infrastructure systems. The other will address Coping with Social Complexity of Infrastructure Projects, where he will explore the social complexity that influences the planning of infrastructure projects.
Dr Fariba Ramezani will present her paper, Impact of Next Generation Infrastructure on Australian Cities which takes an economic approach to understanding the relationship between public infrastructure investment and the liveability of our large cities.
