Early Bird Registration Open for Engineers Australia Climate Smart Engineering Conf

Engineers Australia

Early bird registration and abstracts are open for the 2023 Climate Smart Engineering Conference, (CSE23), Engineers Australia’s flagship event to be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on 29 and 30 November 2023.

“Since its foundation in 2021, CSE has become a focal point for debate and knowledge sharing. CSE23 will highlight innovative engineering solutions that address climate change, but, more importantly, demonstrate that sustainable practices and environmental considerations are now central to the engineering profession whatever the discipline and wherever it’s applied,” said Engineers Australia CEO Romilly Madew AO.

CSE23 will bring the latest in world-leading views and engaging debate on solutions to address climate change, responding to extreme events, biodiversity loss, boosting the circular economy and upholding the principles of sustainable practices in engineering. It will feature a full technical program supported by plenary sessions.

“As creative problem solvers and systems thinkers, engineers are at the forefront of the fight against climate change. The profession stewards the delivery of mitigation and adaptation strategies to address the worst impacts of global warming and innovates to deploy new technologies for a clean fuel and energy future,” Ms Madew said.

The subthemes for the Climate Smart Engineering Conference (CSE23) are:

  • Circular economy – more with less – efficiencies, optimisation and beneficial reuse.
  • Resilience – design for a changing world – resilience and disaster resilience.
  • Energy transition – moving towards a fossil fuel free future.
  • Technology and innovation – accelerating sustainable outcomes – digitisation and automation.
  • Regeneration – engineering to protect and restore nature and biodiversity.
  • Adaptation and mitigation – beyond zero – net zero pathways, carbon drawdown and CCUS.
  • Social impact – community centred engineering (including enhancing social value).
  • Systems thinking approach – collaboration, shared outcomes, multi-industry/discipline/solving.
  • Business management – financial, data, regulations, reporting and other requirements of sustainability.

Abstracts may relate to any sector or industry that has a contribution to make to reduce emissions. Those include, but are not limited to energy, transport, agriculture, waste, buildings, infrastructure, water, coastal, manufacturing, defence, space and mining.

Key dates:

  • 1 February 2023 Early bird registration and abstracts open
  • 12 April Abstracts close (11:59PM AEST)
  • 2 June Early bird registration deadline (11.59PM AEST)
  • 29-30 November Conference (2 full days at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre)
