SCCAR Workshop: FrontierSI
08 November 2018, 2-4pm, networking reception 4-5pm
RMIT University, Garden Building, 10.06.89 (enter from Bowen Street)
Launched on July 1st 2018, FrontierSI is the successor entity of the CRC for Spatial Information (CRCSI). The CRCSI will be familiar to many spatial researchers, having funded, conducted, and led an unparalleled research program in spatial in Australia over the past 14 years. RMIT was an Essential Partner in the CRCSI, and is again a core partner in FrontierSI. This workshop will give you a chance to hear first-hand from the new FrontierSI team about their strategy and research program and from key FrontierSI industry and government stakeholders about their priorities and goals. The Workshop will be of interest to any RMIT researchers who are interested to find out how you can collaborate through FrontierSI on applied research problems important to industry and government.
Registration is essential as space is limited. RMIT researchers can register using the link below. FrontierSI and Industry partners, please contact for further information Rebecca Rigbye (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The FrontierSI research program is an evolution of the established CRCSI research program, but targeted on the next decade’s spatial needs as articulated by industry and government.
- Positioning: “Enabling real-time, robust positioning in any environment with known quality“
- Applied Geodesy: “Developing practical and dependable solutions to the underpinning spatial problems of geodesy“
- Spatial Infrastructures: “Anyone, anywhere should be able to use location information is easily and reliably as switching on a light“
- Rapid Spatial Analytics: “Discovering ways to connect and integrate data sets, making it easier to generate meaningful information, collaborate and inform decision-making“
- Key application focus areas: Agriculture, Health, and Built Environment & Smart Cities
