15th Australasian Tunnelling Conference 2014 (ATS 2014)

Find out more

The 15th Australasian Tunnelling Society (ATS) Triennial Conference will be held in Australia’s largest city, Sydney. The organisers of this popular series recognise the industry’s fast evolution and advances in underground space engineering; the larger tunnel boring machines are only one example of such progression. Other areas of underground engineering have become highly sophisticated over recent years, but continue to present less of a profile.

This conference is the industry’s opportunity to share in the knowledge, share project and application experiences and provide you the opportunity to hear what others have to say. Case studies that show real-world applications and the implementation of new technologies are at the foreground of our industry and help us to continue on the path of evolution.

Down to Earth Conference 2014

The Down to Earth Conference (DTEC) 2014 will provide an invaluable opportunity for earthing engineers to catch up with industry developments in the area of design, installation and commissioning. It also provides an opportunity to network with colleagues in the same field and equipment suppliers who provide the tools needed to realise a design.

This conference consolidates DTEC as the premier Earthing Conference in the Oceanic region and provides opportunities for:

  • Earthing specialists to present their recent experiences and the latest advances
  • Electrical contractors to share installation, maintenance and testing practices
  • Engineers to publish peer-reviewed technical papers
  • Asset owners, regulators, educators, and interested engineers to increase awareness of issues significant in the field and discuss how they are being handled
  • Earthing practitioners, past earthing course attendees and people new to be field to get together and share experiences
  • Suppliers and consultants to showcase their capabilities and products

It is envisaged that the technical program will consist of two components; presentation of peer reviewed technical papers addressing recent advances in earthing related fields, and presentations using a less formal approach to cover recent experiences such as technically challenging installations/designs, applications of tools/methods, report on any incidents of wider interest, provide updates on research topics, and introduce any new tools/materials.

Keynote speakers and invited papers will provide an opportunity for participants to hear from a range of professionals including suppliers, designers, users, researchers and academics.

When:  5 - 6 November
Where: Perth, WA
