Engineering conference

A reminder that abstracts for the 19th Australasian Engineering Heritage Conference are due by midnight AEST, 21 April 2017.

The theme of the conference is Putting Water to Work: from the steam power that opened Australia’s inland waterways to navigation in the 19th century to the nation-building irrigation and water supply schemes that capitalised on Australia’s most precious resource.

Papers on this theme, on any subject will be welcome.

Papers on subjects beyond Australia, and particularly papers which relate to the theme will be welcomed.

Papers on any engineering heritage subjects outside the main theme will be accepted with particular interest in papers relating to:
