About this event

We are now accepting papers for inclusion within this conference and are welcoming submissions from both academia and industry alike.

Projections show that urbanization combined with the overall growth of the world's population could add another 2.5 billion people to urban populations by 2050; as engineers at the frontline delivering urban infrastructure, do we build our way out of trouble or do we make better use of the assets we have by adopting new technologies?

Key Note Speakers confirmed so far for this event will be:

  • Professor Jean Venables (ICE President, 2008-09)

More speakers will be confirmed shortly.

We are inviting papers that showcase the novel and innovative advancements in the practice of civil engineering that meet the growing needs of urban populations. Prospective authors wishing to describe innovative work and submit papers are invited to submit two page in-depth abstracts relating to any of the relevant themes or topics for review by a panel. These themes and topics are as follows:

  • Best practice; design, construction, buildability, sustainability, value and maintenance
  • Forensic engineering
  • Innovative techniques or solutions
  • Research innovations

The project or research must have taken place in the Midlands, or, the work, project or research team (or individuals) must be based in the Midlands.


Please note that ICE will review all submissions to confirm they meet ICE submission requirements.
