Cream of world's engineering managers coming to Australia, thanks to CQUni
Published on 15 July, 2011
Hundreds of the world's top engineering managers are expected to converge on Sydney in 2014, with CQUniversity helping to bring two huge conferences together in Australia.
Professor Gopinath Chattopadhyay will be Chair for the combined International Congress on Condition Monitoring and Diagnostic Engineering Management (COMADEM) and Conference on Asset and Maintenance Management (CAMM).

The Gladstone-based researcher says CQUniversity will have an integral role in arranging the dual event in Sydney.
COMADEM was held in Norway this year, including five well-received papers from CQUniversity researchers. The massive event will progress to England next year and Finland in 2013.
CQUniversity's reputation for hosting events has been boosted by hosting hundreds of delegates for CAMM events in Gladstone in 2010 and 2011.
Professor Chattopadhyay said there was now a great opportunity for CQUniversity to host COMADEM and CAMM together to attract more than 250 delegates.
He said the dual event was supported by other universities (Griffith, Swinburne and QUT), industries (power generators, process, gas, mining, local government, railways) and professional bodies (Asset Management Council, Engineers Australia, Australian Society of Operations Research).
"We are expecting to attract international industries, institutions and researchers for future collaborations, funding and high quality publications," he said.
"Asset and Maintenance management is useful for industries, communities and governments. Businesses, industries and public organisations are under constant pressure to extract the maximum performance and value from their assets. The major focus is on risk, reliability, safety and sustainability using technologies, condition monitoring, maintenance and asset management."
