We have a plan for a journal focusing on the scope of ISIC in 2 to 3 years. Until then, we’ll publish bulletin a couple of times a year.
We are currently planning for a journal entitled “INTELLIGENT CONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGIES FOR INFRASTRUCTURE“
with an acronym as ICTFI.
The mission of the proposed ICTFI journal this journal is to provide a forum for the dissemination of knowledge concerning the collection, analysis, and application of information relating to intelligent construction technologies (ICT) for infrastructure. ICT is a 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 the 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 the proposed ICTFI journal 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.
The subject areas of the proposed ICTFI journal include eight (8) topics under ICT as described as follows.
1 – Theory and Applications
Basic theory and applied research on intelligent construction-related fields. It includes mechanics (such as elasticity, wave, and vibration, viscoelasticity, fatigue, and fracture), engineering machinery, sensors/measurement technology, and intelligent algorithms, as well as related theories and applications.
2 – Sensing Technologies and Equipment/System
All relevant technologies for obtaining information. including sensor technology and equipment, measurement technology and equipment, data acquisition technology and equipment, Internet of Things, etc.
3 – Information and Data Applications
Intelligent construction involves information and data related technologies. Including data science, signal analysis, cloud computing, information platforms, etc.
4 – Artificial Intelligence Applications

6 – Intelligent Construction and Automation
All relevant technologies during the construction phase. Including material monitoring, paving and compaction monitoring, automated machine control (AMC), automatic mechanical guidance (AMG), autonomous engineering machinery (ACM).
7 – Intelligent Maintenance
All relevant intelligent technologies in the maintenance phase. including a variety of non-destructive testing technology and equipment, evaluation, and decision-making technology.
8 – Integrated Technology Subcommittee
Relevant technologies not covered by the above ICT subject areas. It includes a variety of boundary disciplines and technologies, innovative technologies with potential engineering applications.
The target audience of the proposed ICTFI journal includes academics, agencies, industry users, and equipment/system producers.
