We are delighted to announce that the Call for Teaching Papers is now open!

Members of the Institute, professionals and academics working the public works engineering space are invited to submit expressions of interest to present a teaching paper at the 2018 Public Works Training Week, which will be held from Monday 12  – Friday 16 November 2018 “The Rise” in Maylands. Save the date!

All papers and presentations must contain a teaching element with handouts/notes for distribution to the delegates. The Public Works Training Week is aimed at providing practical, hands-on training that can be implemented straight into the workplace. It is aimed at training our younger members - as well as those working in supervisory, technical, and operational roles - in the public works space in the most up-to-date practices and procedures.


Abstracts addressing the Training Week topics should include a focus on providing information on new processes, technologies or lessons learned. The inclusion of case studies is welcomed. Potential presenters are requested to provide a personal bio and an abstract of no more than 300 words outlining the content of their paper by Friday 13 July.


Presentations will be divided into the following presentation timeslots: 45 minutes (minimum), 90 minutes, half day, full day.

When submitting your abstract, please advise of the timeframe required for your presentation.

Teaching Papers

Please feel free to pass this information onto anyone you think would be interested in presenting.

While we are working on the program and presentations, we’d also like for you to please keep these dates free, particularly for your “younger” staff, as the Training Week has been designed specifically with them in mind.
