INTRODUCE

IICTG 2019 Conference
April 16 to 17, Beijing, China
In recent years, construction works for such various infrastructure facilities as roads, railways, municipal facilities, airports and dams have been increasingly integrated with modern science and technology, especially with intelligent construction technologies (ICT). The technical framework for intelligent construction has been established preliminarily to cover their entire Life-Cycle: from planning, survey, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and rehabilitation. This multidisciplinary field involves civil construction, engineering machinery, detection & control, artificial intelligence and other fields. In order to promote the development of intelligent construction technologies for infrastructure facilities (mainly for foundation layers and pavements) and cooperation in various fields and sectors, the International Intelligent Construction Technologies Group (IICTG) has been founded jointly by experts from China, the United States, and Portugal in 2016. The first IICTG conference, IICTG 2017, was successfully held in the United States in September 2017. Riding the wave of momentum from the previous conference, this conference, IICTG 2019, will take ICT to the next level.
