JUNE 6 - 7, 2018 | THE COSMOPOLITAN OF LAS VEGAS
Pre-Con Events: June 5 | Innovation Tech Tours: June 8

The smart connected high performance Intelligent Buildings conference

Higher Education - Smart Campus Summit

June 5 | 1:30 pm - 6:00 pm | The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

Returning for the third year, the Higher Education Smart Campus Summit is a must attend pre-conference event for colleges and universities. In many cases, college campuses operate like small cities, with both new and aging real estate, and diverse services required.

The opportunity to automate many aspects of the campus lends itself to a comprehensive strategy. Because these organizations control their assets, they are in some cases able to move more efficiently through a smart campus project.

Higher education institutions are now familiar with smart connected campus concepts such as building automation, secure enterprise communications, and sustainable energy as well as other major technology trends impacting college campuses today. Given the large number of buildings and the growing communication needs of students and faculty, these options have become necessities.

Thought leaders for the 'campus of the future' will address topics such as building analytics, next generation fault detection, wide area building networks, building operating system selection, IoT engagement and deployment, comprehensive cybersecurity guidelines, IP-enablement of traditional analog devices, partnering with IT departments, and developing a strategy. They will also discuss the impacts of emerging topics such as AI, Machine Learning, Autonomous Vehicles, Augmented/Immersive Reality, Blockchain and more.

If you are interested in what the next generation university smart campus might look like, you will not want to miss this very exciting and timely event.

This by-invitation event is only open to university professionals in Real Estate, Facilities, Energy and Sustainability.

IT and OT – Achieving the Required ORGANIZATIONAL ALIGNMENT
Date: 6/5/2018    Time: 1:45 pm - 2:15 pm    Location: Yaletown 4
While information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) are both ‘technology’, their design, architecture, functionality, standards, protocols and purposes have historically been quite different. IT focused on business automation while OT was geared toward building systems. The analysis, design, implementation and maintenance of these two worlds required very different skill sets. Now that OT is moving into the realm of IT, it requires these two worlds to converge. Some organizations ‘partner’ with IT, some create their own IT group inside facilities, and some are simply at odds with each other. No smart building or campus project will achieve success without the alignment of these two organizations. Case studies focusing on both successes and challenges will be featured.

EDUCATING STAKEHOLDERS – A Critical Part of Developing a Smart Campus Strategy
Date: 6/5/2018    Time: 3:15 pm - 3:45 pm    Location: Yaletown 4
Building systems like lighting, HVAC, conveyances, access control, surveillance, parking and others are all needed to keep occupants happy and safe. When you extend that complex ecosystem to multiple buildings, or a campus environment, the moving parts grow exponentially. All of these systems and their related processes also involve a great number of people. These stakeholders all have different jobs, goals and agendas, and view building operations from their own perspective. In order to create a comprehensive, integrated network of systems, that inevitably merges functions from different groups, it is necessary to educate all the stakeholders on the value proposition of a smart campus. This valuable segment will focus on successful strategies for stakeholder education.

Implementing a Smart BUILDING / CAMPUS NETWORK – A Strategy for University Connectivity
Date: 6/5/2018    Time: 2:25 pm - 2:55 pm    Location: Yaletown 4
Not long ago, just about every building automation system was isolated with little need to connect to any other systems. One system, one building, and one vendor was the fundamental way in which automation was viewed and executed. Fast forward to today and IP networks for buildings are becoming the cornerstone for smart campus projects. Acting as a standardized platform and a unifying architecture, a building and campus IP network provides an open, integrated and interoperable environment in which to connect all systems. This wide scale, standardized approach results in better data, more streamlined processes, lower costs and more efficient operations. This segment will explore the various building / campus network strategies that have been considered and deployed by some of the most progressive universities in the world.

CYBERSECURITY for the Built Environment – Dealing with a University’s Unique Challenges
Date: 6/5/2018    Time: 3:55 pm - 4:25 pm    Location: Yaletown 4
Barely a day goes by that we don’t hear about a significant cyber breach. Corporations, governments and universities continually face the threat of massive cyber attacks. In addition to traditional network and ransomware threats, the cyber landscape is starting to transition into building systems. While anyone overseeing the operations of a building is subject to these threats, universities have more complexity to deal with. With people coming and going at an accelerated rate and devices coming on and off the network at equal speed, the protection of the network and all the connected systems is much more difficult. This vital segment will focus on the unique cybersecurity requirements of a university as it relates to the built environment and all of its associated equipment.

Defining a CAMPUS DATA MANAGEMENT Strategy – Spreadsheets, Databases, Lakes and More
Date: 6/5/2018    Time: 4:45 pm - 5:15 pm    Location: Yaletown 4
For years we have been talking about gathering data from building systems and how best to interpret and utilize it. We started out putting it in spreadsheets, moved to applications and databases, now it's going into ‘data lakes’ and eventually we'll be applying machine learning and AI. Each advancement in the technology brings more questions: How do I capture actionable data? Who owns the data? Where do I store it? What technology best serves our requirements? Perhaps the most important question: What am I looking for? The ultimate goal from a building data initiative is insight to allow organizations to make better decisions, saving money, improving operations and the occupant experience. This segment will focus on case studies, discussion and debate involving the various data management strategies for campus and building projects.

2030 and Beyond: Who Will Inhabit the CAMPUS OF THE FUTURE and What User Experience Expectations Will They Bring?
Date: 6/5/2018    Time: 5:15 pm - 5:55 pm    Location: Yaletown 4
Planning for the future has already begun and the user experience of a brave new world is already upon us. This session will focus on how people currently navigate their social spaces and what those social spaces could and should look like in the future. Classrooms, offices, hallways, common areas, and living spaces on contemporary campuses are poised to undergo a transformation when AI, AR, VR and wearables become more common and are woven into the day-to-day experience of higher education. As designers and planners envision the next generation of smart, connected, and intelligent buildings they must consider the human behavior, both individual and social, that will interface within their design. This exciting session is a step towards addressing that development and innovation.
