European Council on Computing in Construction Meeting

EC3 European Council of Computing in Construction Meeting

The objective of this meeting is to highlight the merits of establishing a European-wide, research-focused community of academics and practitioners with interest in improving the construction industry through computer science. The JC3 organizers will start the meeting with a presentation on a) the motivation for this initiative stemming from their research and conclusions on the current state of affairs in this area for Europe, b) a proposal of EC3, and how it should be structured to fill a unique and non-overlapping role in the European and worldwide academic community. This will be followed by a short Q&A.

The presentation material will be made publicly available online after the meeting, alongside a short questionnaire to provide feedback. All meeting participants are asked to electronically fill in and submit the questionnaire within 10 days. Your feedback will determine whether this proposal continues forward and the shape/form it will take.

This meeting is open to all LC3 participants.
