Coupled with the proliferation of fibre-optic cables has become an increased level of interest in their use as sensors. With the employment of appropriate hardware, cables can be used for both temperature and vibration monitoring.
The workshop will be divided into three sections
- A Masterclass on Fibre-optic sensing by Dr. Arthur Hartog. (Arthur’s research led to the first demonstration of a distributed optical fibre sensor in 1982. Since then he has continued to work on optical sensing and was responsible for the first Raman distributed temperature system. Arthur is the author of the acclaimed book “An introduction to distributed optical fibre sensors”.)
- Presentations from industry and academia detailing the application of fibre-optic sensing in fields such as oil & gas exploration and production monitoring, pipeline monitoring, security systems, and road and rail monitoring.
- Practical demonstrations conducted at Curtin University’s dedicated field laboratory.
The workshop will be conducted at the Australian Resources Research Centre in Perth, Western Australia.
Registration includes all meals and refreshments. Register online.
The New Zealand Society for Earthquake Engineering (NZSEE) and the Australian Earthquake Engineering Society take pleasure in inviting you to contribute to the 11thPacific Conference on Earthquake Engineering (PCEE) being held in Auckland, New Zealand from 4-6 April 2019. The 11PCEE will also be the NZSEE annual conference for 2019.
The PCEE is a valuable forum for professionals and researchers working to understand and reduce seismic risk. This four-yearly assembly of between four and five hundred represent a broad range of disciplines from Australasia, Pacific Rim countries, and beyond.
The 11PCEE organising team is inviting researchers and professionals to present state-of-the-art papers on the science and practice of earthquake engineering, with a particular focus on "turning hazard awareness into risk mitigation". They are particularly interested in those developing long-term visions and strategies for this and to encourage the young professionals who will be leading the engineering community to this goal in the coming decades.
If you are willing to contribute to this international forum, the organising team would like you to submit a 100-250 word abstract to introduce the topic and conclusions of your proposed paper. Please submit this via the 11PCEE website before Friday 28 September 2018. There are more details on the 11PCEE website.
Please help us promote this conference by forwarding this email on to any colleagues you consider would be interested in presenting their work at the conference.
We look forward to seeing you and your work in Auckland!
