7th ECPPM 2008 in Nice, France


The ECPPM conferences have provided discussion platforms for topics of key importance for the AEC/FM industry and the ECPPM 2008 focus will be on two main themes:

  •  structuring of product and process information for enhanced collaborative teamwork and information sharing in this fragmented industry, and
  •  advanced Computing, Information and Communication Technology addressing the challenges for the AEC/FM industry in the upcoming years.

The conference will continue exploration of the leverage expected from ICT deployment in undertaking AEC/FM processes. It will provide attendees with up-to-date overviews and detailed information on the achievements and trends in research, development, standardisation and industrial implementation of product and process information technology.
It will be an open forum for leading specialists from industry and research communities on developments in different countries worldwide, bringing together expertise, knowledge, ongoing research and visions, for the evolution of the expanding world of ICT-based applications that  address information, process and project management in the dynamic construction sector.
The conference will also confirm and refine the RTD agenda for ICT in Construction, This will combine people (key players from industry, academia, research centres) with research programmes from the EC, national initiatives, the European Construction Technology and national Platforms, and current projects from FP6, FP7 ERABUILD, etc.
A special feature of ECCPM 2008 will be to further develop industrial involvement of both established players and newcomers. This is vital to the identification of impacts and benefits of ICT in the context of exploitation and penetration within the construction sector. Industry questions will be invited during the event that will be discussed in planned sessions led by relevant experts but which allow interactive debate.

6th ECPPM 2006 in Valencia, Spain

Product modelling has been increasedly recognise in industry and research. Agreeing on common reference models has got more and more support from AEC industry. The IFC product model has meanwhile extending to an all-embracing Building Information Model (BIM), covering not only design and manufacturing but the whoile life cycle information.
In AEC industry, collaboration is often carried out in mbile teamsthat may often exist only a short time and not during the whole life time like in other industries. Team building, team management and team information support require new methodsin heterogeneous information logistic and context-sensitive technologies.
This information is growing. Monitoring is in strong process, producingenormous amounts of data. Datamining and data analysis has become a new important topic in construction informatics to reduce management and analyses of those data.

Intelligent management of the right information has become the focus of research. Computing power is now available on the web and basic technologies. Making intelligence happen requires more than solely utilizing the basic technologies and computing power on the web. It means algorithms, either numerical or reasoning one and it means enchanced semantic data structures, in which the information and knowledge is integrated and can be retrieve on request. Intelligence does not mean merely power numerical algorithms for soliving and simulating complex engineering system - as understood in computational mechanics. In this context intelligence means autonomous problem specification, decision preparationfor problem solving and to some extent even problem solving it self.
The numerical and reasoning algorithms are utilised in a new, separate information process, namely the information configuration process, so we can now distinguishamong processes on diferent levels.

4th ECPPM 2002, 09.-11.09.2002, Portoroz, Slovenia

The themes of the 2002 ECPPM include all the traditional product and process modeling topics. However, as someone, setting up websites in 1993, the organizer of the 2002 ECPPM suggests to focus this event on the research, development and use of communication technologies, such as the Internet, Web and mobile communication and their impact on how we work and do business in construction.
For ECPPM 2002, over 170 extended abstracts were received and reviewed by 2-4 reviewers, either rejecting, accepting, or asking for the the full paper. Over 110 papers met the quality requirements and deadlines are published. This makes the ECPPM 2002 the largest to date. The community is extending to the east and south of Europe as well as overseas.​  Themes discussed are both new and traditional. The virtual enterprises and construction e-bussiness are a reality. Product model standards have been industrially applied and tested.

3rd ECPPM 2000, 25.-27.09.2000, Lisbon, Portugal

The construction industry has been undergoing a remarkable change during the last teo years. Large construction companies are re-engineered in order to cope with the modern information society, the globalisation demands and the new ways of working, including virtual team work, teleworking and e-business to business. E-commerce platform are very promising to become beneficialto all participant, those who invest in build up the platform, and those who use it. The whole construction industry, being a traditional industry branch, undergoes paradigm shift to an information society industry, and integration reaches beyond the traditional borders.
The conference is envisioned to bring together world-wide researchers and developers who are actively involved in the development ofpractical and theoretical approaches to product and process modelling which will be the basis of our future CAD, CAAD and CAE/CIMsystems. The aim of the conference is to explore research issues and requirements related to methodologies for design, planning,construction and monitoring in all life-cycle phases of buildings.

1st ECPPM 1994, 05.-07.10.1994, Dresden, Germany

In the building industry there is a strong need of interdisciplinary team work on a large scale, which is a challenge not only to researchers and developers, but also to software vendors, distributors, end-users. The main vehicle of this development are the advances in product and process modelling.On the basis of a product and process modelling kernel other areas, such as multi-media, be attached and existing applications can be extended and integrated. With the integration of all product development processes and the management of the information flow between them, we are building information systems that not only distribute information but also carry knowledge. The system becomes an intelligent system.
The conference proceeding contain over 80 articles on Product modelling (Representation of engineering products and knowledge), Design process modelling (Explicit representation of design process knowledge and design strategies), Construction process modelling, Facility management, Integrated environments and EC building projects(Engineering projects, Architecture and construction, Other related projects).
