2019 Conference Speakers
The Graphene+ Enabled Smart Cities conference takes place on 19th November, 2019 in Melbourne. It explores how graphene will play a crucial part in revolutionising the functionality of buildings and improving productivity in construction, infrastructure, energy and mobility.
Australia is positioned to be a global leader in Smart City technologies. Australian materials science researchers are acknowledged to be among the leaders in graphene research for large scale industrial applications:
International and local speakers will provide insights into the potential of
- Low cost, Large scale sensing for IoT;
- Stronger, light weight concrete produced with a significant reduction in CO2 Low cost;
- Highly efficient water purification enabling ubiquitous potable water, and;
- Energy capture and conservation.
The commercial opportunities for integrating graphene into large scale applications are starting to emerge. Those that are early adopters and integrators will reap the rewards.
