Australia's ICT leaders to gather in Melbourne end of November

Australia’s largest ICT infrastructure event, the BICSI South Pacific Conference, will commence at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on 27 November.

The two-day conference will bring together ICT professionals involved in all aspects of ICT infrastructure, including the specification, design, installation or management of ICT networks.

Local and international speakers will deliver presentations on hot topics such as the IoT, the latest ICT infrastructure design methodologies, and meeting the unique communications and power needs of data centres.

The conference will commence with an introductory presentation from BICSI South Pacific CEO Paul Stathis.

This will be followed by presentations covering topics including implementing digital building strategies and applications in the hospitality sector, delivering city services digitally, and achieving accountability in the IoT era.

The mid-afternoon session will be divided into two streams, one covering wireless technologies and the other audio visual technologies. An afternoon plenary will cover conflict resolution in the construction sector.

The morning of the second day will be include a stream covering legal accountabilities — with topics including the implications of Australia’s new corporate whistleblowing laws on the ICT infrastructure sector.

A concurrent technology trends stream will cover areas including the industry disruption that will result from Australia’s expected smart home revolution.

The standards and training stream of the mid-afternoon session will include a panel discussion on transforming training and asset management across the engineering, construction and infrastructure sectors.

Meanwhile the data centres stream will include presentations on implementing a ‘digital twin’ for data centres, and on new technology advancements in multimode fibre networks.

The afternoon plenary covers smart cities, with topics including the ICT infrastructure requirements for highly connected and autonomous transport systems.

The conference will be preceded by workshop on 26 November covering laser safety labelling and optical fibre cleaning.

BICSI South Pacific, the not-for-profit association supporting designers and installers of information technology systems, is now taking registrations for the conference on its website.
