The Future Infrastructure Summit is an industry focused event where digital best practice and process meet. Building on the success of the 2018 Summit in Brisbane, and the 2019 Summit in Melbourne and Brisbane, we’re calling for submissions of interest for 2020 to be held in August. The location of the Summit in either Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane, is set to be announced by mid February 2020.

The Future Infrastructure Summit is an industry focused, 1-day conference, short on sales and big on industry case studies and real-world application of Lean, BIM and GIS in Australia and around the world.

We are looking for experts in the application of the above areas within the Australian infrastructure and construction sectors to present 18 min TED style presentations in main sessions, sit on industry panels, or possibly present workshops in the breakout areas. Please indicate below whether you wish to be contacted about being a speaker/panellist/trainer.

The deadline for abstract submission is at 5pm, Friday 28th February Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT).

Abstracts will be reviewed by the Future Infrastructure Summit committee and presenters will be notified by Friday 13th March 2020
