Welcome From The Conference Secretariat

 

Dear Colleagues,

As emerging countries continue to industrialize and developed countries try hard to recover from economic instability, researchers forecast that the global construction market will reach US$ 8 trillion by 2030 with India, the US, and China in the lead – accounting for 57 percent of all global growth.

To provide opportunities that help in confronting persistent barriers and to develop novel, proactive solutions, The Research Catalyst is organizing the Infrastructure and Civil Engineering Conference 2023 which will be held from March 27-29, 2023 in Rome, Italy.

The conference focuses on current research and best practices in infrastructure planning, asset management, and construction. 
The main agenda of this conference is to bring together world-leading academics, practitioners, industry leaders, policy makers and business professionals from the fields of infrastructure and construction to develop practical solutions for current challenges in these fields. It aims to provide unlimited resources and opportunities all the participants to interact with prominent leaders in the field increase their global network of professionals. 

Highlighted keynote lectures, plenary talks, workshops, roundtable discussions and video and posters presentations highlight research and best practices in these fields and enable discussions and debate among professionals from these fields including engineering and construction and architects, researchers and academics on different strategies and initiatives that help in achieving transformational development in infrastructure and construction in local and global contexts.

The symposium provides an excellent opportunity to meet with experts and to share their knowledge. The scientific program of the conference will pave way for all the visionaries of today’s world to gather on a stage where their research findings will put forward many thought-provoking strategies for the next generations. We hope this conference initiates all the participants to learn more from each other for the sake of improving our communities.

We look forward to welcoming you at InfraCivilCon2023.

Regards,
Kris G
