You're welcome to submit your extended work to the Special Issues related to the event (see "Publication Opportunities").

Welcome from the Chair

I am pleased to announce The 1st International Online Conference on Infrastructures. The conference is sponsored by MDPI and the scientific journal Infrastructures, and will be held from 7 to 9 June 2022. There will be four specific sessions:

  • S1: BIM: Building Information Modeling for Infrastructure Management: Information exchange and interoperability for a collaborative lifecycle work; Industry Foundation Classes (IFC)
  • S2: Digitalization: Digital Twins for Infrastructure Digitalization: Sensing and actuation technologies for infrastructure health monitoring; diagnostics and prognostics; model definition and updating; infrastructure safety assurance
  • S3: Smart Infrastructures: Information Technologies as a Base for Intelligent Transportation Systems: IoT systems and techniques; cybersecurity
  • S4: Materials and Sustainability: infrastructure and construction materials; multifunctional materials and structures; concrete; operation and maintenance; pavement management; end-of-life; management and application of construction and demolition waste (CDW)

We hope that you will join this symposium to exchange ideas, create fruitful collaborations and make the first edition a success.
