International Conference on Smart Infrastructure and Construction (ICSIC)

Churchill College, Cambridge: 8 - 10 July 2019

Studying at Cambridge


Call for papers


The Call for Papers is now CLOSED.

The scope for research papers was deliberately broad, and submissions were 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.

All authors must have registered their attendance by mid-April for their paper to be included in the final programme and conference proceedings. Note that full registration supports one paper presentation. One author must present the paper at the conference. See the registration information here.
