AUBEA2023 

Conference

The 46th Australasian Universities Building Education Association (AUBEA) 2023 Conference will be hosted in association with AUBEA from 26-28 November 2023 in Auckland, New Zealand. The theme of the conference this year is Creating Capacity and Capability: Embracing Advanced Technologies for Sustainable Future in Building Education and Practice. This theme carries on the core mission of AUBEA to promote and improve teaching and research in building/construction through communication, collaboration and scholarly events. AUBEA 2023 Conference will continue the tradition for AUBEA to become the collaboration platform for academics, industry practitioners and students in building to exchange good practices in educating the next generation of building professionals. This time, we bring the AUBEA conference back to Auckland. New Zealand has an enviable reputation for being one of the most beautiful and liveable countries in the world. It was also one of the most protected countries from the global pandemic. The construction and building industry in New Zealand have been enjoying an unprecedented growth in the last couple of years, particularly in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city and economic powerhouse. It is indeed a dynamic and exciting place to host the next AUBEA conference. Authors of selected high quality papers on relevant themes may be invited to develop their papers to be considered for possible publication in a special issue in: ​ - Journal of Information Technology in Construction (ISSN:1874-4753) - International Journal of Construction Supply Chain Management (ISSN 1179-0776) - The Journal of Built Environment Project and Asset Management (BEPAM), ISSN: 2044-124X  Note: Publications in the special issue in the above journals will be subject to the usual full double blind peer review process. The AUBEA conference has earned the reputation as a global conference. The AUBEA 2023 Conference is no exception and is expected to attract delegates and high quality papers from prominent academics, students as well as industry practitioners.
