The ITACET Foundation is pleased to announce that it is organising a one-day training session entitled "Tunnelling 4.0: New technologies & automation" in collaboration with the Argentinian Association of Tunnels and Underground Space (AATES). This event will be held in Buenos Aires on 24th September 2019 within the scope of the 9th "Tunnelling and Underground Space Days".
The aim of the session is to highlight some of the most advanced aspects of digital technology applications in the design and construction of underground facilities. The programme will be split into two main parts: the first will take a look at Building Information Modelling (BIM) for underground applications, whilst the second will focus on automation perspectives in the design and construction of underground works.
Speakers will notably include Dr. Jurij Karlovsek, animateur of the International Tunnelling Association's WG22 on Information Modelling in Tunnelling.
