International Conference on Sustainable Infrastructure 2016
 

17-19 October 2016 | Beijing, China

 

Civil Engineers — Creating Infrastructure for a Sustainable World

Infrastructure is an essential component of national competitiveness and social well-being. Designing and delivering infrastructure systems that truly contribute to sustainability throughout their service life are the theme of this conference.

The International Conference on Sustainable Infrastructure (ICSI) 2016 will focus on sustainability in the built environment, presenting relevant engineering research, demonstrations and applications that contribute to competitiveness and well-being. Presentations and panel discussions will cover sustainable infrastructure planning, financing, design, construction and operation: how practitioners are improving sustainable performance to meet the critical challenges of a changing operating environment.

Keeping in perspective the global implications of China’s infrastructure development, ICSI 2016 will be held in Beijing, China. Chinese Research Academy of Environmental Sciences (CRAES) will serve as the lead organizer of the conference with the help of American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Tsinghua University and Research Center of Eco-Environmental Sciences (RCEES) will be co-organizers of the conference. The Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE) will be the lead sponsor of the conference, and is piloting efforts in developing guidelines and promoting Eco-city demonstration projects. CAE believes that ICSI 2016 is integral to developing the blueprint for more sustainable cities in China and around the world.
