Global Smart City and Community Coalition linking up with Australia

In correspondence with the economic mission from the Netherlands this fall, there will also be a smart city component to this event. The smart city delegation will be led by GSC3, an international organisation which was launched in the Netherlands, where cities such as Amsterdam, The Hague and Eindhoven have been consistently high scorers in the global lists of top ten smart cities.

Based on their insights, knowledge and success, some of the leading smart cities in the Netherlands have formed this international coalition, which now also includes cities in the USA, Italy and Indonesia. Interestingly, they specifically aim at facilitation, cooperation, discussion and collaboration at the level of local councils (mayors and CEOs and general managers of local councils).

The Global Smart City and Community Coalition – GSC3 – is a not-for-profit network organisation of cities, communities and regions to share solutions pursuing sustainable living worldwide. They strongly believe that at that city level we all have a responsibility to take our share in the development of liveable cities and communities by leveraging the gap of economic development, social inclusion and environmental impact.

One of the most important challenges for smart cities and communities is working together and sharing. However, sharing smart, sustainable and scalable solutions with other cities and communities is difficult and this is where the GSC3 can lend a hand.

Much has been written on smart cities and communities, and the advantages are obvious – greater efficiency, lower costs, a healthy living environment and reliable infrastructures – all of this for a better quality of life.

With their work they want to inspire and empower cities and communities and connect them all over the world, starting with the prioritised needs of a city or community they facilitate consortia building and intercity solution replication.

To facilitate the discussions they focus on:
1. Cities’ local challenges.
2. Proven and implemented best practices.
3. Ecosystem formation.

Together with the Australian Smart Community Association the GSC3 will focus on promoting the social and economic benefits of smart cities in Australia. A range of activities will focus on smart cities throughout the country with an international conference planned in Sydney.  We expect that some Australian cities will join the international organisation.

AITPM Conference 2016

The 2016 AITPM National Traffic and Transport Conference will be held in Sydney from Tuesday 26 July to Friday 29 July 2016. As the leading traffic and transport event in Australia, the 2016 National Conference will be the thirty-fifth to be held by the AITPM.

The Conference which coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Institute will be held at the Westin Hotel in the heart of the Sydney CBD at Martin Place.

A key note speaker is Dutch professor Serge Hoogedoorn, from the Transport & Planning Department, Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences, Delft University of Technology.

The Conference will build on AITPM’s reputation for allowing delegates an affordable opportunity to learn about the latest industry developments, network with other professionals and gain an appreciation of the current capabilities, equipment and technologies in the industry.

Whether you are a first time attendee or like a large number  of our members have been to many or all previous National Conferences, we hope you take advantage of the excellent educational and networking opportunities that  will be available at the  2016 Sydney Conference.
The Keynote Speaker for the Conference is Peter McCombs, the original founding Chairman and now Life Member of the IPENZ Transportation Group.

The Conference will commence on the evening of Tuesday 26 July 2016 with a cocktail reception at the Westin Hotel, Sydney CBD.  Over the next two days  on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th July, the Conference will showcase international, national and local speakers before culminating in a further day of technical forums on Friday 29th July 2016. The Annual General Meeting will be held at the end of second day (Wednesday) at which will be presented an update on the Strategic Plan and the future priority actions for the Institute.

In alignment with the AITPM’s Strategic Plan, there will be three streams for the concurrent sessions on Day 1 – Wednesday and Day 2 – Thursday as follows:

•    Transport Planning & Freight and Logistics
•    Traffic Engineering and Management including Road Safety;
•    Traffic, Transport and Land Use Modelling.

There will also be the following three Workshops  on  Friday 29th at the Westin Hotel:

•    Active Transport including pedestrians and cycling;

•    Transport and Land Use Modelling; and
•    Multi Transport Modal Tour.

A key focus of this  conference in the 50th year of the Institute will be a brief review of the many changes in the traffic and transport industry , our history and  a multitude of other  quality presentations to delegates that will address current and emerging issues facing the industry. A  key feature of all our conferences is  to report on significant developments and advancements in the traffic engineering, transport planning and transport modelling fields.

We  are  confident that the presentations and information to be shared at this significant milestone conference in Sydney next July 2016  will exceed your expectations. We look forward to welcoming all delegates to Sydney and to witness first-hand the early stages in the transformation of George St as the light rail is rolled out.
