Automated machine guidance (AMG) became mainstream throughout the early 2000s. The benefits realized in terms of quality, efficiency, accuracy, and speed of construction using AMG systems have been well-documented. Equipment manufacturers continue developing AMG with a shared vision to a future utilizing fully-autonomous AI-enhanced construction equipment with machine-learning capability. A panel of industry experts will present the current state-of-practice using AMG followed by a discussion of the challenges/solutions that are motivating the construction industry to adopt fully-autonomous construction equipment.
The registration fee is USD $99 for non-ISIC members. It is free for ISIC members. Register here.
The International Society for Intelligent Construction (ISIC) is hosting a Building Information Modeling (BIM) for Pavements webinar on July 29, 2020 at 9 am CDT (3 pm Portugal; 10 pm China).
BIM has been proven successful in the vertical industry, where integrating design-construction data has resulted in benefits such as improved efficiency and cost-saving. The industry has increasingly used BIM for the horizontal industry involving infrastructure. BIM for Pavements is a new area in infrastructure applications with the potential to achieve improved benefits for pavement construction.
This webinar will focus on cross-platform technology instead of individual product/solution, lay out a practical road map, and showcase tools and methodology to implement BIM for pavements.

TRANSICOLD 2019 will take place on 20 –23 May 2019, in St. Petersburg, Russia.
The “cold regions” of the world cover large areas in the northern hemisphere, including Canada, Alaska, Finland, Norway, Sweden, vast portion of China and Russia, and all the northern tier of the United States. Cold regions cover 50% of the world’s total land area.
Transportation infrastructure in cold regions faces great technical challenges due to ground freeze-thaw or permafrost degradation. New transportation infrastructure on embankments, such as high-speed railways on slab tracks or highways, requires high geometry standards.
TRANSOILCOLD2019 aims to provide a broader look at the overall problems faced by designers, contractors, and infrastructure owners during planning and building of transport infrastructure in cold regions.
Conference programme includes Young Geotechnical Engineers Symposium on 20 May 2019. Specialists under 35 years old are invited. The best presentation author will be awarded the reimbursement of participation cost for XVII European Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ECSMGE 2019), Reykjavik, Iceland.

The Fourth Internacional Conference on Railway Technology: Research, Development and Maintenance, incorporating: The Eighth International Symposium on Speed-up and Sustainable Technology for Railway and Maglev Systems (STECH2018), took place on 3-7 September 2018, in Sitges, Barcelona, Spain.
Railways have always played a significant role in the development of the wealth creation capabilities of society. The early roman wagonways, the steam driven railways during the industrial revolution and the electric railways of the late nineteenth and twentieth century are just a few of the railway systems that have played a vital role in past infrastructure development. The search for a fast, reliable and cost effective means of transport that presents better energy efficiency and less impact on the environment has resulted in renewed interest and rapid development in railway technology. Following the success of many special sessions on railways technology, held over the last few years in the Civil-Comp Conference series, a new conference series was created in 2012. The first conference was held in: Las Palmas de Gran Canarian in 2012; the second in Ajaccio, Corsica, in 2014; and the third in Cagliari Sardinia in 2016.
The themes for this conference included (but were not limited to): Rolling Stock; Infrastructure; Energy and Environment; Signalling and Communication; Planning and Operations; Strategies and Economics.
