CALL FOR ABSTRACT
The HKIE Transactions Committee is honoured to announce that Prof Wei PAN, Associate Vice-President (Research and GBA) and Associate Dean (Masters) of Faculty of Engineering of The University of Hong Kong (HKU) and also Executive Director of Centre for Innovation in Construction and Infrastructure Development (CICID) and Professor at Department of Civil Engineering, has accepted our invitation to be the Guest Editor for HKIE Transactions – Theme Issue on Construction by Smart and Innovative Techniques which will be published in HKIE Transactions Volume 30 Number 2, June 2023 issue. You are invited to submit manuscripts to this Theme Issue.
To address the critical challenges facing the construction industry, various smart and innovative techniques have been implemented in both building and infrastructure construction projects. Researchers have made efforts in all aspects of smart and innovative construction, including but not limited to off-site and modular integrated construction (MiC), artificial intelligence (AI), Internet-of-things (IoT), digital design and construction, robotics, 3D printing, low-carbon construction, and so on. The various smart and innovative techniques have made great achievements in construction applications such as automatic decision-making, intelligent construction planning, real-time construction monitoring, and unmanned construction.
This theme issue welcomes a broad range of submissions of smart and innovative techniques developed for the engineering and construction industry. The editors expect to gather a set of recent research outputs together, to report the progress of what is going on, and to build a forum for researchers to exchange their innovative ideas on the state-of-the-art smart and innovative technologies and their applications in construction. Original papers in all these areas will be considered.
Topics suitable for inclusion include but not limited to:
MiC, AI, BIM, GIS, IoT, Digital Twin, Robotics, automation and life cycle assessment and their applications in all areas of construction such as logistics, supply chain, transportation, construction planning, delivery, monitoring, sustainability and management
