Registration for the ISNGI 2017 is now open. This year the Symposium is co-sponsored by the UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC), a major UK research programme of which The University of Cambridge is a founding partner.
The event is for academics, industry, government and policy makers and the programme features a number of high profile national and international keynote speakers, talks, panel discussions and a poster session as well as the opportunity for networking.
The main objectives of the Symposium are to facilitate a co-ordinated global infrastructure research programme, focussed on long-term infrastructure and land use planning, and to ensure the best minds across industry, government and academia work together collaboratively to create not only best practice benchmarks but new knowledge and innovation to better inform strategies for long-term prosperity.
The event seeks to establish international and interdisciplinary research collaborations designed to enable exploration of the development of Next Generation Infrastructure (NGI) in the context of understanding the interactions between infrastructure, the population it serves, technology and sustainability, both now and into the future.
The ISNGI Academic Steering Committee welcome submissions for paper and poster extracts that respond to the Symposium’s overarching themes or questions.
