Event description

Description

Register now to join the first ARCOM Doctoral Workshop in Australia on Large Infrastructure Projects!!

Overview: Infrastructure projects (e.g. rail, roads, bridges, dams, oil & gas platforms, underground metros, etc.) facilitate economic and social activity in an economy. These assets form the critical lifeblood of economic prosperity and development of nations. However, large infrastructure projects are notorious for the many performance challenges that beset their planning, procurement and delivery – for example, more than 50% of large infrastructure projects experience significant cost and schedule overruns.

This workshop will be structured to allow the discussion of current infrastructure delivery problems and solutions. This will create the opportunity to ask critical questions, test ideas and initial hypothesis or solutions, as well as provide a debating forum that will help sharpen our collective understanding of the complexities associated with planning, appraisal, design, finance and governance of large infrastructure projects.

Workshop Themes (not exhaustive):

  • Project Risk Quantification and Analysis

  • Integrated Strategic Asset Management

  • Infrastructure planning & Investment analysis

  • Benefits assessment in megaprojects

  • PPPs and infrastructure delivery

  • Sustainable and resilient infrastructure

  • Megaproject failure and success

  • Value Capture and Major Land Transport Infrastructure

  • Front-End Project Governance

  • Megaproject complexity, risk and uncertainty management

  • Future-Proofing Infrastructure.

  • Current and emerging infrastructure issues in Australasia

Submission of papers: To present your work at the workshop, please submit a short paper (not exceeding 6000 words which will be peer-reviewed by 2 established academics in the subject matter.
