The 9th World Construction Symposium

9–10 July 2021

Reshaping construction: Strategic, Structural & Cultural Transformations towards the ‘Next Normal’

The Ceylon Institute of Builders (CIOB) and Building Economics and Management Research Unit (BEMRU), Department of Building Economics, University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka are jointly organising the 9th World Construction Symposium from 8-10 July 2021. This annual symposium will provide a special forum for researchers and practitioners in the areas of built environment and construction industry related research worldwide to share their knowledge, experiences and research findings. Due to the prevailing situation, this year’s symposium will take a hybrid form with virtual paper presentations and minimal onsite participants for inauguration and sum-up events.

WCS full papers are indexed in Scopus since 2019.

Ceylon Institute of Builders (CIOB) and Built Environment Project and Asset Management (BEPAM), a journal published by Emerald Group Publishing, have arranged several awards for the author(s) of outstanding papers and the best presenter(s) of the symposium (further details available here.)
