International Conference on Innovations in Civil Engineering is conducted from 9-10, May 2013. It is organized by the Department of Civil Engineering in association with Indian Concrete Institute, Chennai at SCMS School of Engineering And Technology.


Civil Engineering is co-evolving with the integrated global marketplace. Technology is spurring innovation and accelerating productivity. Global capital is impacting infrastructure construction, and the global supply chain is affecting project delivery. Dynamic discussions will explore the changes shaping the profession today and in the future. Civil engineers with enhanced skills and knowledge are needed to interact with multi-national teams spanning cultural boundaries about global socio-technological problems. International Conference on Innovations in Civil Engineering (ICICE-2013) provides opportunity for academicians, students, and researchers to meet new colleagues to share their contributions to the Civil Engineering profession, guide the future of the profession, find out the latest industry breakthroughs.

ICICE-2013 aims to create a platform for Civil Engineers and research scholars to express and share their thoughts on innovative technological trends in Structural Engineering, Concrete Technology, Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering and Transportation Engineering.
