The Australian Tunnelling Society will host the Australasian Tunnelling Conference, supported by Engineers Australia and the New Zealand Tunnelling Society, between 29th November and 2nd December 2020. The conference will consist of three days of technical presentations, an industry trade show in parallel with the conference and other activities including workshops and site visits to current tunnelling projects in Melbourne.
To celebrate the 50th year since the first Australian Conference on Tunnelling, the organising committee
would like to hear from some of our more senior tunnelling practitioners willing to reflect upon some of the achievements of the tunnelling industry in Australia in the last 50 years. To balance the ledger there will be a technical session that provides a forum for our youngest industry members to present on
their tunnel industry experiences. The 50th birthday themes are thus:
• Tunnelling in Australia – the last 50 years;
• Young Members – the future of our industry.
