CI & CRC Joint Conference 2024
The theme of the CI & CRC Joint Conference is: "Constructing Connections across Research and Industry." The joint conference's technical program will provide insights on the latest research and industry practices that will lead to next generation techniques, technologies, and strategies to meet 21st century challenges.
CRC leads academic, cutting-edge construction research, and Iowa State University will host the annual Construction Research Congress. The Construction Institute Summit, with its heavy industry component, will facilitate interaction between construction research professionals, contractors, owners, and practitioners. Together, we will share new developments and innovative practices. Network with peers, earn PDHs, and get access to leading research and industry practices.
Construction Institute of ASCE
The Construction Institute (CI) is the first national organization designed to meet the needs of all individuals working within the construction industry. CI is fully inclusive, with active membership available to construction industry practitioners from all occupations and educational backgrounds. CI offers individuals and organizations the opportunity to network with other professionals, sharpen skills and shape the future of the industry by participating in technical activities, conferences and the development of internationally recognized standards.
Iowa State University
Iowa State University is a public, land-grant university, where students get a great academic start in learning communities and stay active in 800-plus student organizations, undergrad research, internships and study abroad. They learn from world-class scholars who are tackling some of the world's biggest challenges -- feeding the hungry, finding alternative fuels and advancing manufacturing. Engineering was one of the first programs offered at Iowa Agricultural College (now Iowa State University) when the university was established in 1858. The first students who arrived in 1869 studied agriculture and mechanics. Soon after, several branches of engineering developed out of the mechanics course. When the first Iowa State class graduated in 1872, six of the 26 students graduated with engineering degrees – four in civil and two in mechanical. Conducting innovative research and industrial outreach are core missions of the College of Engineering.
ASCE-CI Journal of Legal Affairs and Dispute Resolution in Engineering and Construction
The mission of the Journal is to serve as the technical reference and resource for construction lawyers engaged in public and private practice, as well as for design engineers, construction engineers, and executives responsible for successful project administration. The Journal provides thought-provoking discussions and insight into the legal relationships arising out of the changing nature of project delivery systems, dispute avoidance and resolution, sustainability concerns, and effective project execution. The Journal will focus on legal issues, aim to increase the attention given to legal systems during engineering and construction practice, and seek excellence in the application of legal resources for the success of engineering and construction projects.
