Event Co-Organiser

CSIRO’s Data61 is Australia’s leading data innovation group which was officially formed in 2016 from the integration of CSIRO’s Digital Productivity flagship and the National ICT Australia Ltd (NICTA). Our mission is to create Australia’s data-driven future. We believe Australia can lead the world in change and not just respond to it.

To create a better world for the future generations, we’re bringing together the innovation ecosystem and building a global applied R&D network of partners in government, industry and academia called the D61+ Network.

Through the D61+Network we will align our collective capabilities with Australia’s national interests and help Australia create new technology-based industries that can reach global scale.

QUT – Queensland University of Technology (QUT)



Event Co-Organiser

QUT is a major Australian university with a global outlook and a real-world focus. We are one of the nation’s fastest growing research universities and our courses are in high demand. As an ambitious and collaborative institution that seeks to equip our students and graduates with the skills they’ll need in an increasingly disrupted and challenged world, we invest heavily in collaborative learning and transdisciplinary research environments. This is epitomised by our Institute for Future Environments leveraging QUT’s deep domain knowledge in Robotics and Autonomous Systems to deliver real-world impact across  theoretical and applied research in aerial autonomy, terrestrial and maritime robotics, robotic vision and navigation, learning and adaptive systems, and lifelong autonomy.
