CIB International Conference, 2014 . CIB, Heritance Kandalama, Sri Lanka. ISBN 978-1-907842-54-2

It is no exaggeration to say that CIB is the world's foremost platform for international cooperation
and information exchange in the area of building and construction research and innovation. What
takes place at CIB events is the very essence of CIB's raison d'être and, outside the triennial CIB
Congress, an unprecedented number of CIB working commissions and task groups are represented
at this Conference and we have worked to facilitate interaction with a rich mix of specialist
streams, opportunities for informal networking and a series of challenging keynotes.
With its focus of “Construction in a Changing World”, the Conference provides a forum for
researchers worldwide to debate and exchange ideas and experiences on a broad range of issues.
Driven by technology innovation, demographic growth, environmental change, a new economic
order and a strong undercurrent of social and political desire for change, the world is changing
quickly. Construction doesn’t exist in isolation and, in a fast-changing world, the sector has the vital
role of providing the requisite built environment to meet the challenges presented by these
changes. In order to deliver value, maintain competitiveness and address the needs of society, the
construction industry will need to develop its capabilities for managing innovation and technical
change. The Conference will bring together resources and knowledge across different fields,
technologies and disciplines to deal with the major challenges that construction professionals will
be confronted with in the coming years.
