The European Council on Computing in Construction (EC3) is a recently established society of construction professionals, academics, researchers and national Professional Bodies, aspiring to become the leading European forum in the area of information technology in construction engineering and management.
Role of EC3
The European Council on Computing in Construction (EC3) advances professional knowledge and improves engineering practice in the built environment by fostering research, education and policy in current and emerging computing and information technologies. EC3 is founded on the following four pillars and corresponding Technical Committees:
- DSA: Data Sensing & Analysis
- M&S: Modelling & Standards
- HDI: Human Data Interaction
- EDU: Education
EC3 will interact strongly with other Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Facility Management (AEC/FM) societies in related areas, strengthen the collaborations between academia and industry in topics related to EC3’s mission, spearhead research on such topics, identify and promote effective ways to advance the state of knowledge and the level of education and practice in these topics, assist in the making of policy, and support existing and new related specialty conferences and publications.
