On behalf of the Australian National Committee on Large Dams (ANCOLD) Executive and the 2018 Conference Organising Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to the ANCOLD 2018 Conference in Melbourne, Victoria.
The conference will be held at the Sofitel Melbourne On Collins at the Paris end of Collins Street, in the heart of Melbourne’s premier shopping, dining and theatre district.
With the theme of “Dams: Evolving with Modern Technology” the conference will be an ideal forum to focus on advances in all aspects of dam engineering, from investigation techniques and equipment, through to emergency management with assistance of social media, and everything in between. The conference will be a showcase of the Australian state-of-the-art in terms of the investigation, design, construction, management, operation, maintenance and monitoring of dams. The theme is intended to challenge you to think laterally and demonstrate how advances in technology are improving our design, construction and management of dams.
The conference is an important meeting place for professionals working in the dams industry. It is an opportunity to engage with speakers from across Australia and abroad, meet up with colleagues, network and visit the exhibitor displays.
We welcome and value the ongoing support from past sponsors of ANCOLD conferences and encourage new sponsors to take up the opportunities and brand exposure that this conference can offer.
We look forward to seeing you all in Melbourne in October, for what promises to be a memorable event.
2018 ANCOLD CONFERENCE CONVENOR
CALL FOR PAPERS NOW OPEN
PROGRAM AT A GLANCE
INVITATION TO SUBMIT
The call for papers for our Melbourne 2018 conference starts the formal process of bringing together our technical program.
The organising committee has established an approach that we trust you will find engaging. A wide range of themes and subthemes have been prepared with the aim to inspire you to put forward papers that will inform and challenge.
The abstract process is focussed on improving the opportunity for you to highlight the key information that you will bring to the conference and promote your paper to the technical review panel.
The committee has also asked that authors ensure the abstract topic and paper is supported by their organisation, including internal review processes prior to submission to ANCOLD. Authors will be asked to provide these details during the submission process.
Finally, the ANCOLD conference is your conference. The executive, organising committee and support staff provide a platform for you to contribute to our profession and to learn from your peers and other professionals. Its success depends upon your active participation and the quality of contributions.
I look forward to meeting with you in Melbourne and participating in a successful conference.
