Conference Themes

Welcome to the 5th International/11th Construction Specialty Conference (ICSC 15). The conference provides the opportunity for researchers and practitioners of construction around the world to share the most recent innovations and developments in the construction industry. This conference will be held in partnership with the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Construction Institute (Construction Research Congress – CRC), the US Construction Industry Institute, and the UK Association of Researchers in Construction Management (ARCOM).  In addition, the Canadian Journal of Civil Engineering (CJCE) has approved a Special Issue in Construction Engineering and Management. A selection of authors from this Conference will be invited to expand their papers, so that they can be considered for the CJCE Special Issue.
