Academic Workshop to explore how BIM educational activities are affecting the attainment of educational outcomes

The National Institute of Building Sciences buildingSMART Alliance is calling for papers and case studies focused on BIM in education. The Alliance is sponsoring its 9th BIM Academic Symposium, to be held Tuesday, April 7, 2015, in concert with a BIM Job Task Analysis Review on Wednesday, April 8, at the Institute’s headquarters in Washington, DC.

This two-day event brings together representatives of different academic programs and industries to discuss the technology-based collaboration among the architecture, engineering, construction, owner and operator (AECOO) industry. The Academic Workshop will explore how BIM educational activities incorporated at different levels of college curriculum are affecting the attainment of educational outcomes through credentialing, accreditation or certification.

Attendees will review papers and case studies to further academic models and generate dialogue about the issues involved with the transformational disruption of changing the way academia educates to support BIM and all the offshoot opportunities BIM is creating to improve productivity.

Researchers, academicians and practitioners in the AECOO industry are invited to submit short papers (up to 8 pages) and/or presentations that describe best practices, experiences and challenges for incorporating BIM into educational programs or describe specific course or project experiences.

Abstracts are due to the BIM Academic Symposium’s organising committee no later than Monday, December 1, 2014. Submissions should not exceed 300-words in length.
