The smart connected high performance Intelligent Buildings conference
JUNE 13 - 14, 2019 | NASHVILLE, TN
Golf Outing & Tech Tours: June 11 | Pre-Con Events: June 12

Higher Education Smart Campus Summit

June 12 | 1:30 pm - 6:00 pm | Nashville Music City Center

Returning for the fourth 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.

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.

** SPECIAL INVITATION **
For those attending the Summit, please join us for a free private luncheon before the event begins. This is a great opportunity to meet and get to know other university attendees. Lunch will be held in Room 204 from 11:45am to 1:00pm.

Building a SMART CAMPUS TEAM – Leveraging Internal and External Resources
Date: 6/12/2019    Time: 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm    Location: Room 207D
Once a smart campus strategy has been established, it is critical to build a team that can execute. There are many different departments that could potentially touch the various technologies in a smart campus. Facilities, engineering, IT, energy, sustainability, construction, as well as business leaders and academics, should all collaborate and have a say in the planning. Additionally, external resources which could include service providers, consultants, and system integrators are also critical components of this team. Colleges and universities have taken different approaches to establishing the framework for their smart building teams and this segment will provide an extraordinary opportunity to compare and contrast the different strategies.

Smart, Connected, High Performance Campuses – Creating a UNIFIED STRATEGY
Date: 6/12/2019    Time: 1:45 pm - 2:00 pm    Location: Room 207D
Ask ten people involved in operating a university what they think of as a ‘smart campus’ and you may get ten different answers. Universities and college campuses are effectively small cities, and technology is having a significant impact on their design and operations. Smart buildings/classrooms/dorms, campus infrastructure networks, next generation wireless, digital media, campus apps, new energy technologies, autonomous vehicles, robots and drones are just some of the concepts changing the face of these campuses. One of the most important factors determining success is the idea of a unified vision. Bringing all the various stakeholders into the conversation to develop that vision and create a comprehensive strategy will be addressed in this segment.

From Concept to Scale – Developing a Campus Wide OT NETWORK Strategy
Date: 6/12/2019    Time: 2:50 pm - 3:20 pm    Location: Room 207D
With smart buildings progressing from building automation to smart and connected to the IoT, the connectivity at a campus level becomes crucial. There is still a debate as to whether the Operational Technology (OT) Network should be converged with the campus enterprise network or whether it should be standalone and proprietary. Given that OT networks are a fairly new idea, it is not common to find them deployed at scale. Conducting some tests in a few buildings is quite different than deploying an OT network across an entire campus. Standardization, ROI analysis, equipment availability, governance, cybersecurity, ongoing maintenance and staff skills are among the topics to be discussed.

5G, CBRS and In-Building WIRELESS PRIMER – Setting the Stage for the Future
Date: 6/12/2019    Time: 3:20 pm - 3:30 pm    Location: Room 207D
Throughout history, technology has had a distinct impact on the way we work, play and live. There are small incremental changes that improve a specific technology or process, and then there are major paradigm shifts that REcalibrate the playing field. The next generation of wireless—5G, CBRS and other technologies—are poised to radically shift how the world communicates for humans, machines and buildings. Both the speed and latency of this new wireless capability will lead to an ever-increasing connected world. The 5G, CBRS and Wireless Primer will provide a high-level overview of those emerging technologies.

Moving Towards a Smart Campus – Identifying BUSINESS BENEFITS & COSTS
Date: 6/12/2019    Time: 3:30 pm - 4:00 pm    Location: Room 207D
A university campus operates like a small city, and the opportunities to transform it into a ‘smart city’ are extraordinary. Singular governance combined with the confined proximity of facilities makes it a perfect place for accelerated city-scale innovation. Whether it is a smart building infrastructure, new energy solutions, a connected media and communications platform, emerging transportation or enhanced experiences, all of these new ideas come with a cost. In order to move these innovative concepts forward, there must be a very clear understanding of the business benefits and costs, as well as the ability to communicate them to senior leadership. Financing the vision of a smart campus will be the focus of this important segment.

Warehouses, Lakes and Beyond – What is the Right Smart Campus DATA STRATEGY?
Date: 6/12/2019    Time: 4:30 pm - 5:10 pm    Location: Room 207D
Traditional building devices and systems installed in buildings have been very analog and generated very little data—if any. HVAC, lighting, access control and other systems were not capable of much data generation and were not connected to any platform to transport the data. Times have changed and now everything can be connected to the network. With devices getting smarter every day, the amount of data generated is enormous. The exponential increase in data creation requires a thoughtful and comprehensive smart building data strategy. Collection, structure, normalization, platform, cyber defense, maintenance, integration and interoperability are all issues to be addressed.

Insight from Others – Leveraging the Experience of DIFFERENT BUILDING SECTORS
Date: 6/12/2019    Time: 5:10 pm - 5:50 pm    Location: Room 207D
While a university campus has a defined set of operating realities unique to the process of educating students, in the end it is a collection of buildings with a support infrastructure. Resource conservation, operational efficiency, enhanced occupant experience and financial optimization are still the major objectives of facility professionals. With this in mind, there is a community of thought leaders from Commercial Real Estate, Corporate Real Estate and the Government that have been on this smart building, portfolio, campus journey for a long time and have a great deal of experience to share. This valuable segment will bring together smart building thought leaders from other sectors to share their insight with the Higher Education community.
