Calgary Branch Luncheon: Today's State-of-the-Art in Unmanned Vehicles Systems (Robots)

11:15 am - 1:00 pm

Dr. Alex Ramirez-Serrano, P.Eng. will discuss the development of high-speed robotic systems for operation in highly confined spaces, such as humanitarian aid, oil and gas, mining, construction, urban search and rescue, and many others.

Register by March 24, 2019

This presentation will look at the development of high-speed robotic systems for operation in highly confined spaces, such as humanitarian aid, oil and gas, mining, construction, urban search and rescue, and many others.

Alex Ramirez Serrano RobotsWe will describe the problems that need to be addressed to enable robotic systems to be deployed in confined spaces, to improve human-robot interactions, and to be trustworthy and adopted by society. Also we'll provide a technical description of new research and development work for unmanned aerial vehicles and humanoid systems that was developed to solve the challenges found in attempting to fly in confined spaces.

Two game-changing systems will be highlighted: First, highly maneuverable high-speed vertical take-off and landing of unmanned aerial vehicles and humanoid robots for operations in confined spaces such as collapsed buildings, capable of performing maneuvers that no other robots are currently able to perform. Second, artificial intelligence and new paradigms in robotic control to solve problems that have no existing solutions.

Using the methodologies developed for highly maneuverable unmanned aerial vehicles and driven by the goal of developing enhanced humanoid robots, the presentation will discuss how to extend the capabilities of current humanoids to be deployed in industrial settings. The ultimate goal is to enhance the robot's abilities to navigate in unstructured terrains while being able to change its locomotion, to walk, climb, jump, or crawl with the aid of the robot's full body capabilities (arms, shoulders, hands, knees) to increase operational capabilities, despite navigational uncertainties.

About the Presenter

Alex Ramirez Serrano PEngDr. Alex Ramirez-Serrano, P.Eng., is a full-time professor at the University of Calgary, where he has served on diverse roles, including founder and director of the Autonomous Reconfigurable Robotic Systems Research Laboratory. Dr. Ramirez-Serrano is founder and CEO of 4Front Robotics, a Calgary-based robotic company that develops drones and unmanned vehicles.

He also has a doctorate in mechanical & industrial engineering (University of Toronto, Canada).

His industrial experience includes mechatronic engineer at ABB Corporate Research Centre (Sweden) and research engineer at Argonne National Laboratory - West (USA). His work also includes the development of humanoid robotics with applications in pediatric care, where he employed robots to significantly reduce children’s stress, to improve the hospital experience, and to reduce staff time to apply procedures, in some cases by more than 50%.

In 2014, Dr. Ramirez-Serrano and his collaborative team with the Faculty of Medicine and the Alberta Children’s Hospital won the Prize of Excellence in World Innovation awards for his pediatric care research. He is also the recipient of the 2014 ASTech award (Alberta's highest science and technology honour) in the category of Outstanding Achievement in Applied Technology & Innovation for work in game changing UAV technology.

Leading Major Capital Projects

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Large engineering and construction projects are complex and of longer duration, presenting greater challenges to busy managers and executives. The long history of staggering cost overruns and delays in project completion offers little assurance that the cost estimates and schedules presented to project executives can be relied upon. The level of uncertainty and volatility associated with major capital projects make a predictable outcome almost impossible to achieve.

Large engineering and construction projects are complex and of longer duration, presenting greater challenges to busy managers and executives. The long history of staggering cost overruns and delays in project completion offers little assurance that the cost estimates and schedules presented to project executives can be relied upon. The level of uncertainty and volatility associated with major capital projects make a predictable outcome almost impossible to achieve.

To help busy leaders, this course proposes the application of a Benevolent Dictatorship on the next wave of major capital projects. Benevolent Dictatorship is a practice in which a demanding leader exercises absolute leadership over an organization and its major capital projects, but does so for the benefit of all members of the organization and the projects in full compliance with legal, moral, and ethical requirements and values.

Project leaders must act ethically and legally, understand risks, and address the concerns of their stakeholders while overseeing and participating in the delivery of their major capital project. 

This course will cover the following subjects:

  • Embrace Uncertainty: classify risks, allocate reserve amounts and assign responsibility for risks.
  • Engage Stakeholders: each consultation and negotiation with a stakeholder can affect how well you deliver your project.
  • Transform Governance: establish a governance structure and advocate ethical behaviour.
  • Fulfill Your Obligations: appreciate your contractual and tort obligations, recognize your claims and disputes obligations, and pursue HSE obligations.
  • Build Relationships: earn trust, gain respect and adopt a collaborative relationship model.
  • Improve Productivity: prepare productivity plan, address productivity issues, incorporate productivity lessons learned, set project-based productivity targets, measure productivity, provide feedback. 

When you participate in this session, you will learn how to:

  • Improve major capital project performance
  • Conduct oversight of major capital projects
  • Understand and fulfill senior executives’ obligations

Calgary Branch PD Evening: Leadership, Creating Culture, and Getting Results

5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Randy Maus from Front of the Room Leadership to learn how to affect change in your organization, grow as a leader and receive insights and feedback on your own leadership challenges.

Register by March 31, 2019

Who has the most influence in any organization? The leader. At every level of an organization, the leader demonstrates the values that manifest and models the behaviours that  influence and determine the culture of the entire organization. How can a leader become aware of their influence and consciously make choices that create and support a powerful and productive culture? What practices can create clarity, accountability, and a strong sense of team? Leading others is not an easy skill set, nor is it one that comes naturally to most people.

In Canada, most professionals advance to a leadership position due to their technical expertise, yet leading others effectively requires an entirely different set of skills. Much like attaining a degree or credential in a professional field, leadership skills are gained through training and purposeful practice. Used in conjunction with coaching and applied in an organization, leaders rapidly affect change, not just for a project or goal but for the entire culture of the organization.

Employing a combination of presentation, discussion, and interaction, you will have an opportunity to learn how to affect change in your organization, grow as a leader, and receive insights and feedback on your own leadership challenges.

About the Presenter

Calgary Branch Luncheon: Near Surface Geophysics in Search of Failing Dams, Dead Sea Scrolls, and the Hidden Stashes of Pablo Escobar

11:15 am - 1:00 pm

Paul Bauman, P.Eng., P.Geoph. will present a brief discussion of some of the challenges in applying near surface geophysical methods to provide humanitarian relief as well as address archaeological, geotechnical, and even criminal issues.

Register by April 14, 2019

Since 1990, Paul Bauman has carried out and directed near surface geophysical exploration programs on 6 continents. Notable archaeological investigations have included exploring for Dead Sea Scroll Caves, the mythological ancient city of Atlantis, gas chambers of the Sobibor Nazi extermination camp, a Holocaust escape tunnel in Lithuania dug by the "Burning Brigade," World War II mass burials, a first century bath house in Nazareth, and the tomb of Jesus in Jerusalem on the property of Joseph of Arimathea.

Recent locations of water resource exploration programs for humanitarian relief have included the Rohingya camps in Bangladesh, the massive Kakuma refugee camp in the Turkana desert of Kenya, and the villages of Northern Uganda destroyed by Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army. Some of the more significant geophysical targets in Western Canada have included mapping geohazards in glaciomarine clays and waste rock dumps, imaging the interior of earth filled dams, the direct detection and mapping of oil sand and shallow gas deposits, and the mapping of natural saline discharge zones along the entire reach of the Athabasca River through the oil sands deposits.

A number of these programs have been featured in television and movie documentaries, books, a Discovery Channel "reality" television series about hunting for the hidden cash, arms, emeralds, and drugs of Pablo Escobar’s Medellin Cartel, and even an off-Broadway play opening this March.

In this talk, Paul will briefly discuss the background, technical challenges, and outcomes of a few of these investigations. Besides describing the intriguing geoscience scenarios of each of the site investigations, Paul will clearly describe why the findings are important and of inherent interest to the wider audiences of PBS NOVA, the New York Times, Time magazine, National Geographic, and APEGA.

The long history of staggering cost overruns and delays in completion offers little assurance that the cost estimates and schedules presented to project executives can be relied upon. This session is tailored for project managers who are involved directly in managing projects and will build on the Fundamentals of Project Management session by analyzing current industry practices and introducing some value-improving practices to enhance the delivery of complex construction projects.

The presenter will discuss research findings about cost overruns and benchmarking. He will also discuss ways to improve project decision-making, the management of construction, and associated risks. Fresh thinking is required and some long-held ideas of best practice will be challenged to opens the door to a different way of thinking to enhance project predictability.

The course may cover the following topics:

  • Overview of project gated processes: its application, advantages, and disadvantages.
  • Discussion of the dilemma of predictability and risk/causes of cost overruns and what we can do about it.
  • How to identify early warning signs.
  • Re-defining project risks: operational risk, strategic risk, contextual risk, contingencies, and allowances.
  • Key success factors for major capital projects.
  • Cost estimating overview, classifications, contingencies, and confidence.
  • Reshaping the governance system:
    • The Project Sponsor and his/her leadership role.
    • The Project Executive Officer and his/her leadership role.
    • Project Eco-system and contract strategies.
  • Fast tracking projects: How to fast track and key success factors.

Calgary Branch PD Evening: Acoustics in the Built Environment

5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Salem Al-Hirtil, P.Eng., as he discusses the practical technology needed to achieve a more acceptable acoustic environment for human life. This presentation will provide fundamental knowledge necessary for understanding more specialized topics in room acoustics and services noise.

Register by May 12, 2019

Acoustical engineering covers a wide range of topics and applications in both physical acoustics and dynamics. Three of these disciplines have been strongly associated with the acoustic modeling, measurement, and analysis of sound and vibration and are in line with the following engineering applications:

  1. Environmental – Noise propagation outdoors, applications on the impact of noise on the natural environment, and the control of noise and vibration emissions.
  2. Architectural – Noise indoors or inside the built environment, also known as "room acoustics." This details the behaviour of sound inside enclosed spaces and accounts for building transmission loss, leakages, amplification, and the diffusion of sound and attenuation of mechanical and electrical services noise and vibration inside buildings and halls.
  3. Electronics – Covers the subjects of reproduced sound and human hearing.

This presentation will explore the practical technology needed to achieve a more acceptable acoustic environment for human life. It is aimed at mechanical, structural, and electrical engineers who work in the building industry, and at project managers. Also, it should serve as a useful foundation for architectural and environmental engineers, as well as students encountering acoustics for the first time. It provides the fundamental knowledge necessary for understanding more specialized topics in room acoustics and services noise.

About the Presenter

Salem Al Hirtil P.EngSalem Al-Hirtil, P.Eng., is an acoustical engineer with over 30 years of experience in the field of fundamental acoustics and acoustical engineering, environmental noise, engineering noise control design, vibration analysis, and assessment of human exposure to noise.
