ajor biological breakthroughs toward the end of the twentieth century basically guaranteed that not just medicine and health, but also the fundamentals of birth, death, and all phases of life will be drastically altered by continuing discoveries throughout the twenty-first century. But the “Biological Revolution” will be accompanied by equally dramatic change in many other areas. In geopolitics, the complete integration of Europe and the rapid emergence of China, India, and Brazil will create new economic and military alliances. The world will eventually agree to reduce the anthropogenic contribution to global warming, but the exact form of that agreement will evolve over time and ultimately have a significant impact on our daily lives. New Earths will be discovered, planets around other stars, where water is liquid and life is possible. At the personal level, the availability of ever more appealing and sophisticated “virtual worlds” will cause a large fraction of the world population to spend less and less time and energy in the “real world”. What will happen in the 21st century that will alter our daily lives as much as the cell phone and email? How can individuals, groups, and corporations keep track of the dizzying pace of change in so many dimensions and determine which innovations and discoveries will impact them the most? In “A Vision of the 21st Century”, Gentry Lee will address the coming changes and suggest a blueprint for being successful in the decades ahead.

C

urrently Gentry Lee is Chief Engineer for the Solar System Exploration Directorate at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California. In that position Mr. Lee is responsible for the engineering integrity of all the robotic planetary missions managed by JPL. His major recent work included the engineering oversight of the Phoenix mission that landed successfully in the Martian arctic in May 2008. Previously, Mr. Lee provided

oversight for all engineering aspects of the twin rover missions to Mars that landed in January 2004, as well as NASA’s successful Deep Impact and Stardust missions. Mr. Lee was Chief Engineer for the Galileo project from 1977-1988 and, after working in a variety of positions on the Viking project from 1968-76, was Director of Science Analysis and Mission Planning during the Viking operations. The historic Viking mission was mankind’s first successful landing on another planet. The Galileo mission explored Jupiter with both an atmospheric probe and an orbiter that mapped the major Jovian satellites during a decade of operations. In addition to his engineering work, Gentry Lee has been an active novelist, television producer, computer game designer, media columnist, and lecturer. Between 1989 and 1994 Mr. Lee co-authored four novels, CRADLE, RAMA II, THE GARDEN OF RAMA, and RAMA REVEALED, with revered science fiction grandmaster Arthur C. Clarke. All four books were New York Times bestsellers and were translated into over twenty languages. Since his collaboration with Mr. Clarke, Gentry Lee has written three more successful solo novels, BRIGHT MESSENGERS, DOUBLE FULL MOON NIGHT, and THE TRANQUILITY WARS. From 1976 until 1981 Mr. Lee was the late Carl Sagan’s partner in the creation, design, development, and implementation of COSMOS, a science documentary series for television that won several Emmys and the prestigious Peabody Award. COSMOS was the most successful nonfiction documentary of its time, eventually being shown in over sixty different countries. Mr. Lee received the NASA Medal for Exceptional Scientific Achievement in 1976 and the Distinguished Service Medal (NASA’s highest award) in 2005. In October 2006 he received the prestigious Harold Masursky Award from the American Astronomical Society’s Division of Planetary Sciences for his career contributions to planetary exploration. Gentry Lee received a B. A., Summa Cum Laude, from the University of Texas at Austin in 1963 and an M. S. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1964. He then attended the University of Glasgow in Scotland on a Marshall Fellowship for one year. Mr. Lee has seven sons.

Stereoscopic 3D - The Next Wave of Visualization

Breaking through the Glass Wall from Design & Construction to Facility Management

Alex Shows, Stereoscopic 3D Technologist, Office of the CTO, Dell

Deke Smith, Executive Director, buildingSmart Alliance

Stereoscopic 3D technology is rapidly moving to the mainstream, from Hollywood movies to computer gaming to online virtual reality to more traditional CAD, engineering and scientific applications. This presentation will include experts and demonstrations of the latest in 3D technology and outlook for the near future.

For hundreds of year’s facility managers have had to rely on their own capabilities to operate new facilities, because often marked up construction drawings were slow to arrive and were not truly representative of the final facility. Yet now a new day may have arrived that the design and construction world may be able to deliver true as-builts, but the FM community is slow to warm to the idea. How does the industry change this culture to the new thinking? This session will look in depth at one such situation at the University of Southern California and discuss other ways such as the use of construction operations building information exchange (COBIE).

Microsoft Point of View – Jumpstarting Smarter Computing Brian Zeve, Managing Director, Microsoft Professional Services Industry Solutions

Microsoft offers architecture, engineering and construction firms unique capabilities for creating value -- improving productivity, accelerating service delivery by connecting professionals, sharing knowledge and know-how, enabling business insight to gain visibility into project performance and lowering IT costs. Skip ahead for a vision of the future, where information is seamlessly identified, consumed and shared while reviewing major advancements in technology offering a roadmap for the future including smart devices, smart sensors, natural user interface, presence technologies, auto-classification, virtualization technology and cloud-based computing.

new investments, this approach provides a process, a maturity model and an integration opportunity assessment tool. These tools and associated assessments should aid efforts in corporate planning, education, and development of specific implementation plans. The tools and assessment processes reviewed in this presentation will help companies move forward no matter its current state.

William Tschudi, Principal Investigator, Applications, Environmental Energy Technologies Division, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Energy benchmarking in cleanrooms provides a high level understanding of energy end use and key systems’ performance. Energy performance of air or water systems for example helps to identify energy efficiency opportunities and points to best practices. When LBNL benchmarked a number of cleanroom facilities, however, additional information was captured. In “mining” this data, additional insight can be gained in how systems are designed and operated. Understanding the range of possibilities can influence future design and operation leading to better performing systems. This presentation will discuss some of the less obvious findings from the benchmarking project.

Information Integration to Improve Capital Project Performance Bruce Strupp, Technology Director, CH2MHILL

This presentation summarizes research done through a 2008-2009 CII research team. Research Team RT 258 addressed the current state of information integration practice among CII member companies and offers processes and tools to help them improve. The current state of information integration practice in the industry is generally viewed as well below the potential of current technologies – even for leading firms. To help firms make a systematic assessment of their current information integration practices and plan for

The New Millenniums, a generation that is raised on models and virtual environments, will find the arcane methodology of two-dimensional drawings redundant and unintelligible. This iPod App generation is clearly the most connected we’ve ever seen, tolerating nothing less than instant answers. Modeling and leveraged analysis tools now provide better techniques for us to design, analyze, test, refine and perfect proposed solutions. Even construction, possibly the world’s oldest profession and most difficult to change, now sees model based coordination, pricing, sequencing and even fabrication as an efficient workflow continuum. These new attitudes and perspectives may clash with the realities of the design and construction process, but the groundwork for change to empower them is happening today. Ultimately the new millenniums will be gifted with tools and techniques that will empower them to meet their challenges.

Wrap Up Jerry Gipson, Director, Engineering Solutions Technology Center, The Dow Chemical Company

Building on past success and a history of excellence in capital asset life-cycle management, 10 years ago Dow Chemical defined a vision of integrated engineering, construction and operations that would use lifecycle data management to bring a step change in safety, reliability, and engineering productivity. We then dedicated significant resources to make that vision a reality. It is a long and continuing process, we have learned what the challenges are, implemented new value-adding capabilities, and with all of you are laying the foundation for continued and even accelerated progress toward what has become our shared vision for the future. It is only through new models for collaboration, with FIATECH as an example of new thinking and innovation, that results both achieved and anticipated are possible.

Ric Jackson, Ph.D., Director, FIATECH

This special meeting is for all software developers who attend the conference, member or not. This meeting will provide an opportunity for software developers to discuss issues that are common to you all and that FIATECH, as a community can address, in a meeting environment free of your customers. In particular, now that we are moving forward to develop a self-sustaining entity for the furtherance of ISO 15926, we will be especially interested in whatever issues you might face in delivering off-the-shelf products that are compliant to that standard. We will also brief you on the project plan for the 2010 ISO 15926 Operational RDL/WIP Project.

This interactive workshop will focus on general creativity principles, processes, and mechanisms that organizations can use to manage technology innovation more effectively and efficiently. Inhibitors, obstacles, and barriers to creativity and innovation will be discussed, together with enablers, obstacle-removers, and barrier-breakers to overcome them.
