The Eighth International Conference
on the Application of Artificial Intelligence to
Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering
30 August - 2 September 2005
"At the interface of industrial and academic research..."
This is the eighth in the CIVIL-COMP series of conferences concerned with the
application of artificial intelligence to civil, structural and environmental engineering.
The first Civil-Comp Conference was held in 1983.
will provide a forum for the presentation and dissemination of recent developments
in the use of computers in civil, structural and environmental engineering. A major objective
of the conference will be to link research and innovative ideas to engineering
Short to medium length papers describing the application of artificial intelligence to
civil, structural and environmental engineering projects will be particularly welcome. In addition,
it is hoped that significant research and review papers on civil, structural and environmental
engineering computational research topics will be presented.
The range of topics considered by the Conference will include: AI programming languages and systems
tools - object-oriented programming - fuzzy logic - knowledge elicitation -
knowledge representation - interfacing techniques - pattern recognition -
intelligent databases - natural language processing - machine learning -
reasoning under uncertainty - heuristic procedures - distributed architectures -
genetic algorithms - risk analysis - neural networks - integration of KBS and
hypermedia - case based design and reasoning - agent technologies - agent-based
design - neural networks - reasoning - integrated design - conflict management -
soft computing - virtual reality - decision support systems - java programming -
barriers to the introduction of Knowledge Based Systems and Artificial
Intelligence to Practice - Information needs of designers.
Typical areas of application in civil and structural engineering include:
computer aided design - structural analysis and design - earthquake engineering - structural control: active and passive devices - civil engineering and construction management and project control - building engineering and design -
intelligent and responsive structures - design codes and standards processing -
constructability - design construction integration - integration with
mathematical programming - geotechnical engineering: analysis and design -
integrated engineering systems - multiple model representation - earthquake
engineering - optimization - diagnosis - quality control and assessment -
information systems - environmental engineering - cost estimating - quantity
surveying - construction planning - data analysis - transport and traffic
engineering - surveying - intelligent computer assisted learning - graphics -
collaborative and concurrent engineering or design - education.
The conference runs concurrently with the Tenth International
Conference on the Civil, Structural and Environmental
Engineering Computing. Participants may attend sessions from either conference.
Further information for authors can be found on the submission page.
