Call for Abstracts

Call for Abstracts is now closed

Full papers are optional – however if you would like to prepare a paper after being accepted, you are welcome to do so, and this would be published on the IPWEA NZ library after the Forum

As a new decade begins, we are looking ahead at the opportunities and challenges, and their implications. People may walk on Mars, and insects become part of our diet. Companies could become less profit-focused, while taking a more active role to address climate change. AI will predominate. Society is ageing. We will cycle more. And we might learn to like each other and be a bit nicer. Maybe technology has a role in that.

Our theme for the Advanced Asset Management Forum 2020 is: Challenges | Opportunities | Connections.
We are seeking abstracts which demonstrate how, through connections, strategic asset management can enable and embrace the opportunities and challenges of the new decade.
We encourage stories that illustrate, stimulate, and inspire the bold approaches which are needed to build a healthy and sustainable future. Clever approaches where challenges are overcome and opportunities are taken.
