Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering Photios G. Ioannou travelled to Sendai, Japan on November 7th to attend the 4th International Conference on Civil and Building Engineering Informatics (ICCBEI). Ioannou and his co-authors were honored with the Best Paper Award for their publication entitled “An Automated BIM-Integrated System for Change Order Cost Impact Evaluation.”
Ioannou’s co-authors include Veerasak Likhitruangsilp (Chulalongkorn University), Tantri Handayani (Universitas Gadjah Mada) and Nobuyoshi Yabuki (Osaka University). Likhitruangsilp is a CEE alumnus and former student of Ioannou. Today he works as an Associate Professor at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Thailand.
ICCBEI covered a wide range of research fields in the application of information and communication technology to civil, building, and environmental engineering. It was organized by the Asian Group for Civil Engineering Informatics in partnership with the Committee on Civil Engineering Informatics, Japan Society of Civil Engineers. Although ICCBEI is held in Asia, it is an international conference that welcomes participants from all over the world. Next year, the 5th annual conference will be held in Hong Kong.
Congratulations to Ioannou and his co-authors for their outstanding work and well-deserved recognition at the conference!
