ISIC INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

Trends on Construction in the Post-digital Era

GUIMARÃES, PORTUGAL - SEPTEMBER 6 TO 9, 2022

Overview

The International Society for Intelligent Construction 2022 Conference (ISIC 2022) will be held in Guimarães, Portugal, from September 6 to 9, 2022. The conference theme is “Trends on Construction in the Post-Digital Era“. The city of Guimarães, Portugal, is also a UNESCO World Heritage site.

From the Chair of ISIC 2022 Organizing Committee:

ISIC (www.IS-IC.org) was renamed in 2019 from the International Intelligent Construction Technologies Group (IICTG), launched in Guimarães, Portugal, during the 3rd International Conference of Transportation Geotechnics, in 2016.

ISIC 2022 is the third ISIC international conference, following the first conference in Minnesota, USA, in 2017 and the second conference in Beijing, China, in 2019.
ISIC 2022 will follow the ISIC mission:

“… promote intelligent construction technologies applications to the life-cycle of infrastructure: from the survey, design, construction, operation, and maintenance/rehabilitation by adapting to changes of environments and minimizing risks. The goals of its mission are to improve the quality of construction, cost-saving, and safety.”

We will take a holistic approach to integrate civil engineering, construction machinery, electronic sensor technology, survey/testing technologies, information technology/computing, and other related fields. While the world is in the digital era, it is our vision to take a step forward by addressing societal issues and improving the wellbeing of people in their physical environments.

On behalf of the organizing committee, I am honored to invite you to ISIC 2022 in the City of Guimarães, UNESCO World Heritage, from September 6 to 9, 2022.

Sincerely
Prof. Antonio G. Correia, University of Minho, Portugal; ; Vice-President and Executive Committee of ISIC

This session is addressed to the AEC community in general and will provide a view about the future of the construction sector in Portugal. It will present the intermediate results of the largest project for digital construction ever conducted in Portugal: REV@Construction. The project will be presented by the several work packagescoordinators. The session will also include several inspirational Keynote Speakers,coming from prestigious Universities and Companies to present the latest scientific and technical breakthroughs in the area.

The project “Digital Construction Revolution – REV@Construction” focuses on the digital transformation of the AEC sector to promote their competitiveness, sustainable growth, and strategic alignment with the sector at the European level. Its R&D activities focus on developing digital tools and solutions to create the foundation for future innovations, attract new companies to the AEC sector, and create new business models to emerge in the future.

The conference encourages the submission of proposals for special sessions, Mini-symposia, and associated events such as workshops and exhibitions.

Proposals should be sent to the organization (icisic2022@civil.uminho.pt) including a title, a brief abstract, organizers. Find here the proposal template.

This will held at the University of Minho on September 6.
