The International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction (CIB) together with the Finnish Association of Civil Engineers (RIL) and the Tampere University of Technology (TUT) are pleased to announce the World Building Congress 2016.
The theme for CIB World Building Congress 2016 is "Intelligent built environment for life”. It highlights the importance of the built environment and its development in society. This triennial congress will focus on the intelligent processes, products and services of construction industry: How can research help to improve the contribution of constructed assets to digitalizing world and service needs? How will the research community meet emerging new needs of the users?
Over the five days of the congress the best of all building and construction experts in the world, both in and outside the CIB community, are brought together through professional and academic papers, presentations of best practices or significant case studies, posters, training materials, product presentations, round tables, special sessions and workshops.
