Welcome to the 15th Australasian Tunnelling Conference 2014
The 15th Australasian Tunnelling Society (ATS) Triennial Conference will be held in Australia’s largest city, Sydney. The organisers of this popular series recognise the industry’s fast evolution and advances in underground space engineering; the larger tunnel boring machines are only one example of such progression. Other areas of underground engineering have become highly sophisticated over recent years, but continue to present less of a profile.
This conference is the industry’s opportunity to share in the knowledge, share project and application experiences, and provide you the opportunity to hear what others have to say. Case studies, which show real-world applications and the implementation of new technologies, are at the foreground of our industry and help us to continue on the path of evolution.
The Australasian tunnelling community, particularly the Sydney ATS team look forward to hosting you and creating an atmosphere where underground space can be advanced together. Your standing in the profession will increase by submitting an abstract, paper and presentation. What an opportunity!
