- 17th Engineering Heritage Conference: Canberra 100 - Building the Capital, Building the Nation
- Engineers Australia, Barton, ACT, 2013, 189 pp
The 17th Engineering Heritage Conference was held in Canberra as part of the Centenary celebrations of the naming of the city, and the theme, "Canberra 100 - Building the Capital, Building the Nation", was selected to highlight the contribution all states and territories of the Commonwealth have played in creating and sustaining the nation and its capital. The conference program was planned to focus on the contribution of all of the states and territories of Australia towards the building of Canberra as the nation's capital and more broadly their contribution towards nation building over the past 100 years. In addition, papers were presented on the development of the nation's infrastructure and the development of heritage engineering principles as we move into the 21st Century. Keynote speakers presented papers on key national science and engineering initiatives and programs. These were complemented by a range of presentations on topics as diverse as the heritage of thermal power stations, bridges and piers, to innovative interpretive themes and techniques from the laser scanning in conservation and heritage on a small budget.
