Call for Speakers

    The Future Infrastructure Summit is an industry focused event where digital best practice and process meet. Building on the success of the 2018 Summit, the 2019 Summit is to be held in both Melbourne and Brisbane over Wednesday 23rd - Thursday 24th October, and Monday 28th - Tuesday 29th October, respectively.  

    Our goal for the Future Infrastructure Summit is an industry focused, 2-day event short on sales and big on industry case studies and real-world application of Lean, BIM and GIS in Australia and around the world.

    For day 1, 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.

    A series of training sessions are also planned for day 2 and we’re calling for expressions of interest from third party organisations and individuals to offer and deliver training sessions in the above.

    Please indicate below whether you wish to be contacted about being a speaker/panellist/trainer in any of the 2019 sessions.

    The deadline for abstract submission is at 5pm, Sunday 30th June 2019 Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST).

    Abstracts will be reviewed by the buildingSMART Australasia & LCIA Future Infrastructure Summit committee and presenters will be notified by the 23rd July 2019. The event will be held 3 months later on Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th October in Melbourne and Monday 28th and Tuesday 29th October in Brisbane 2019.
