DACE is organizing the 2022 ICEC World Congress in Rotterdam on June 12-15. ICEC stands for the International Cost Engineering Council (www.ICostE.org), a non-profit organization that brings together more than 300.000 Cost Engineer from more than 40 countries. Cost Engineering includes, estimating, project controls, planning/ scheduling, procurement, contract management, quantity surveying, value management etc.
The theme of the World Congress is “Predictable Projects in a Dynamic World”. We live in a dynamic World, full of Technological Innovations, Environmental Challenges, Political and Economic Developments. Despite these dynamics our Customers (Project Managers, Directors, Principals, Governments and Investors) require us to make accurate and timely estimates, forecasts and schedules from the Feasibility Phase till Decommissioning. We (the Cost, Value, Controls, QS professionals) need to rise to this challenge. The Congress aims to bring together our Customers, Suppliers, Academic Research and us in order to Share Knowledge, to Inspire and Develop Predictability in Projects.
This means we are primarily looking for contributions from Researchers, Customers, Professionals and Suppliers related to “Predictable Projects in a Dynamic World”.
We started of traditionally with a conference in “de Doelen”, but then came COVID-19. The save choice is to go for a virtual congress, but we would like to aim for a hybrid form, even though that is a “grass root” area or “unchartered territory where no one has gone before”.
How can you contribute? We are looking for:
And of course, we are also looking for people who want to be part of the organization of this World Congress. In case you are interested, please contact us at email@example.com.
