  • About Asian Group for Civil Engineering Informatics (AGCEI)

    AGCEI was developmentally organized from the previous series of Asian Construction Information Technology Roundtable Meeting sponsored by the Japan Society of Civil Engineers (JSCE) and Japan Construction Information Center (JACIC). AGCEI is a sister organization of International Society for Computing in Civil and Building Engineering (ISCCBE), and ICCBEI, which is organized by AGCEI, is a sister international conference of International Conference on Computing in Civil and Building Engineering (ICCCBE) officially. ICCBEI is to be held in the odd number years in Asia, while International Conference on Computing in Civil and Building Engineering (ICCCBE), which is organized by ISCCBE, is to be held in the even number years. Although ICCBEI is held in Asia, it is a truly international conference, and we welcome participants from all over the world.
