5th Graduate Student Colloquium in Construction

Following the tradition of past CSCE Construction Specialty Conferences, the 5th Graduate Student Colloquium in Construction will be held on May 30th and 31st, 2017, immediately prior to the start of the CSCE conference.

The colloquium aims to provide a venue for construction graduate students to showcase their research work, and network and engage with other graduate students, academic researchers and industry practitioners in the field.

To be eligible to participate, students must be enrolled in a construction graduate program at the time of the colloquium and must present a poster on their research work during the event.

Note: In order to participate in the poster competition, participants will have to attend both days and participate in all activities. Participants who do not attend all activities can still present their work, but will not be considered for the competition.

Colloquium co-chairs: Mohamed Isssa and Sara Rankohi.
