The International Society for Intelligent Construction (ISIC) is a source for knowledge and information on intelligent construction technologies for public agencies, contractors, consultants, academia, and other relevant industries.
ISIC was founded by Dr. George K. Chang (US), Prof. Antonio G. Correia (Portugal), Prof. Guanghui Xu (China), and Prof. Soheil Nazarian (US) in 2016. It was originally called as International Intelligent Construction Technologies Group (IICTG). IICTG was renamed as ISIC in 2019.
Mission Statement and Scope
ISIC provides a forum for the dissemination of knowledge concerning the collection, analysis, and application of information relating to intelligent construction technologies (ICT) for infrastructure. The ICT is combination of modern science and innovative construction technologies. The mission of ISIC to promote the applications of ICT to the life-cycle of infrastructure: from survey, design, construction, operation, and maintenance/rehabilitation by adapting to changes of environments and minimizing risks. The goals of its mission are to improve the quality of construction, cost-saving and safety.
The scope of ISIC (the Scope) covers all current and emerging intelligent construction technologies for the life-cycle of infrastructure. The Scope includes intelligent sensing, data analysis, decision-making and execution. The fields that the Scope covers include civil engineering, construction machinery, electronic sensor technology, survey/testing technology, information technology/computing and other related fields.
