Why Attend?

This multi-conference event will include innovative research and engaging discussions in the area of modular and offsite construction. Accomplished academics and industry personnel from four established conferences—the Modular and Offsite Construction (MOC) Summit, the International Symposium on Automation and Robotics in Construction (ISARC), the International Conference on Construction and Real Estate Management (ICCREM), and the Innovation in Construction Forum (ICF)—will participate under the theme of Industry 4.0 for Resilient Urbanization.

  • Network with international experts from industry and academia to exchange knowledge, expertise, and technological advancements in heavy industrial, commercial, and residential building sectors.
  • Attend thought-provoking presentations showcasing offsite construction methods, productivity studies, BIM, architectural design for modular construction, automation and robotics in construction, sustainable building and management practices, and more.

IAARC Community and Annual ISARC

IAARC is the world’s leading network of professionals and researchers in architecture, engineering, construction, and facility management (AEC/FM) who feel that the practice, education, and research of automation and robotics in construction have to transform in order to respond to the world’s existing and future challenges. What historically has been organized by leading academics around the world has turned in 1990 to the world’s leading International Organization for Automation and Robotics in Construction (IAARC).

By then a number of international symposia had already been convened and since 1984 the International Symposium on Automation and Robotics in Construction (ISARC) is IAARC’s annual flagship event where both practitioners and researchers, industry and academic leaders meet. While ISARC has steadily grown over the past years it has always been presaging most of the innovations that have prominently emerged in the construction and infrastructure industries. Topics including 3D reality capture (i.e., laser scanning, drones), augmented/mixed/virtual reality (AR/MR/VR), artificial intelligence (AI), information modeling, 3D printed, automated heavy equipment, lean construction, supply chain management, prefabrication, and modularization have all been researched under the IAARC umbrella.
