IT directions - 20 years' experience and future activities for CIB W78

Abstract: This paper looks back 20 years to the first CIB W78 conference that was organised by the author. It builds upon the analysis of themes by Amor & Betts reported at the 2002 conference and includes some analysis of the papers published in the journals Automation in Construction and ITcon. Trends in topics presented at annual CIB W78 events are analysed and suggestions made for future conference themes and links with other Working Commissions and the needs of developing countries. The role suggested for this successful group is that it continues to help exchange of international experience and encourage collaboration between research and industry and with other groups in CIB.
