Creative Construction Conference 2017:
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
Creation is an inspiring endeavor. This is especially true when one creates objects of a size that only a few people can. Cathedrals or skyscrapers, bridges or aqueducts, highways or dams are not only fascinating due to their size but also because they greatly affect the lives of all people in their proximity – for decades or even centuries. Construction…this is a true creation.
The growing demands for a “better” built environment – even if the meaning of “better” is hard to define in this context – requires increasing levels of diverse knowledge. As time progresses, it is getting harder to live up to the ever growing expectations: trains begin to compete with the speed of airplanes, buildings may be expected to produce rather than consume energy, and in the not-so-distant future we will build in outer space, most likely with advanced robotics.
Creative Construction Conferences are organized to provide a forum for those ambitious researchers and practitioners from around the world who have realized that the construction industry is rapidly changing and accept that building materials, construction technologies, and project management will creatively and quickly evolve in the future.
You are cordially invited to participate in our fifth Creative Construction Conference in June, 2017. This year Primošten – a jewel of the Croatian Adria-coast – will play the gracious host of the upcoming Conference.
Accepted, peer-reviewed papers will be included in the ISBN numbered proceedings. Extended versions of selected papers will be published in an issue of Scopus-indexed Procedia Engineering. Furthermore, a few selected, extended and fully refereed papers that fit the scope and mission of Automation in Construction, International Journal of Construction Management, or Organization, Technology and Management in Construction will be published in a special section or issue of the given journal.
Over the past five years, Creative Construction Conferences have earned their reputation and have become the largest construction management conference in Europe. With your help we can go even further.
We look forward to exploring the known and unknown boundaries of construction together. We hope to see you in June 2017 in Primošten.
