International Conference on Smart Infrastructure and Construction (ICSIC)

Churchill College, Cambridge: 8 - 10 July 2019

Studying at Cambridge


Abstract Submission


The scope for research papers is deliberately broad, and submissions are encouraged in any discipline or subject area relevant to the conference themes. 

Full papers will be made available to conference delegates and it is planned that selected authors will be invited to submit papers to the ICE Journal "Smart Infrastructure and Construction".

The Conference will attract an international audience of academics and practitioners. Presenters will be encouraged to highlight the theoretical insights and practical implications to a multi-disciplinary audience that is attracted to new, transformative ideas.

Acceptance of a paper for inclusion in the final programme is conditional on at least one author booking to attend the Conference by mid-April 2019. See the registration information here.

Abstracts should be 500 words in length and prepared using the template provided here.  Abstracts should be uploaded to the ConfTool submission system (available here) as a .pdf file.
