Back to Agenda Register

Smart Infrastructure is a forum where best practices and implementation plans are shared, providing cross-sector learning and collaboration, including:

  1. Case studies of smart infrastructure successes and failures (good to know why things fail)
  2. BIM strategies from augmented reality to resiliency that show significant ROI
  3. Expert panels discussing current and future trends in IoT and connectivity
  4. Practitioners illustrating good-practice implementation strategies and methodologies
  5. Leading solution providers outlining their vision, expertise and benefits to the public
  6. Policy makers outlining public priorities, strategies and standards
  7. Round-table discussions sharing and debating ideas, challenges, and next steps

The Smart Infrastructure Forum will cover a variety of subject matter, industry groups, and breadth and depth of smart infrastructure material. Content and discussions will be grouped into four distinct silos, with general sessions that bring it all together.
