کنگره تحقیقات ساخت و ساز در جورجیا 2014
2014 Construction Research Congress
Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, USA
May 19-21, 2014
The theme for this conference is "Construction in a Global Network.” It highlights the importance and relevance of construction engineering and management research; where schedules and networks are among the most distinguishable subjects and the impact of globalization continues to transform the industry and the education of students, professionals and researchers alike. The effect of professional and social networks is dramatically changing existing communication patterns and information sharing paradigms in the way we live, practice, conduct research, and educate students in the domain of construction engineering and management and beyond. We can instantly know the whereabouts of colleagues through social media such as LinkedIn, Facebook, or Twitter, share information, and get immediate feedback. Instructors can address hundreds of thousands of students through massive open online courses (MOOCs), made possible due to technological advances in internet connectivity and on web-based instructional methods. As a reflection of current integrated practice and project delivery, these technologies are also allowing for better communication among construction owners, architects, engineers, construction managers, subcontractors, consultants, and facility managers.
In addition to the signature tracks traditionally offered by previous CRCs, this Congress will be incorporating new tracks that reflect some of the emerging integrated practices such as innovative project delivery systems, ubiquitous building information modeling, interactive geospatial information systems, integrated facility and program management, sustainability-conscious architecture and building performance.
I want to also say Welcome to Atlanta! It is an expression that seems redundant given the immense welcoming character of the city. Atlanta is a city shaped by its rich cultural heritage, vibrant entrepreneurial spirit, unparalleled southern hospitality, delicious cuisine, remarkable architecture, and comfortable weather (in May the average high is 80 degrees and the average low is 60 degrees!). Atlanta is also home to the busiest airport in the world, thereby making travel here easy and economical. While in Atlanta, you may explore the many attractions the city has to offer, including: Atlanta Botanical Garden, Atlanta Zoo, Centennial Olympic Park, CNN Center, Cyclorama, Fernbank Museum of Natural History, Georgia Aquarium, Martin Luther King Jr. Center, Stone Mountain, Woodruff Arts Center, World of Coca-Cola, Piedmont Park, and many more.
On behalf of the Construction Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the Georgia Institute of Technology, I invite you to Atlanta and to the CRC2014.
Your conference chair,
Daniel Castro-Lacouture, Ph.D., P.E., M.ASCE
