The 9th ECPPM is a biannual conference series dating back to 1994. ECPPM was the first BIM conference founded on the basis of European BIM research projects preceding IFC and BuildingSMART and has fostered BIM development over the last 18 years. The conference series has gained a recognized position as an important event in the international AEC/FM ICT research agenda. Although with European roots, the ECPPM attracts delegates and prominent speakers from all around the world providing delegates with valuable knowledge and discourse on latest state of the art in ICT research and development in the AEC/FM industry.
The mission of the ECPPM 2012 conference is to identify the most recent achievements and directions in dealing with these exciting, but challenging issues by focusing on Product and Process modelling technology in integrated project working, value-based life cycle management and as support for intelligent and sustainable building and construction.
