The International Conference on Architectural Technology (ICAT) has the aim to provide a platform for researchers and academics, as well as practising professionals, from all over the world to present their research and professional development activities in Architectural Technology. The theme for this conference is Healthy Buildings; Innovation, Design & Technology.
The first day of the Conference, May 12th, students of the host institution can take part on the conference sharing the work they are developing through an international competition. To participate, students will have to present an A1 poster defending how their work would improve people’s well-being through Innovation, Design and Technology. The projects to present will be ones developed in the regular subjects that the students are attending at the moment. This can be achieved by means of innovative approaches on design and construction or by using innovative tools that help on improving the quality of the result by controlling the whole building process, since the design until the building is in use.
