Call for Papers – Cost Engineering Tracks
The International Project Management Association (IPMA) has teamed up with ICEC to provide two special tracks focused on “Cost Engineering and Project Management” and “Mega Projects and Complex Cost Management” at their annual congress this year. Further details can be found at: http://www.ipma2013.hr/homepage.aspx. These 2 special cost tracks are a new addition to the Congress thanks to the collaboration between IPMA and ICEC. We would like to encourage all cost management experts in the ICEC community to consider submitting a paper and attending the conference. Abstracts are due by Friday, 15 April 2013 and can be submitted online at http://www.ipma2013.hr/speakerszone.aspx. Click here for further details.
The International Cost Engineering Council (ICEC) is an nonpolitical and nonprofit organization which was founded in 1976 with the object of promoting cooperation between national and multinational cost engineering, quantity surveying and project management organizations worldwide for their mutual wellbeing and that of their individual members.
ICEC member societies are located in more than 40 countries, and have chapters or sections in many additional countries. Through these chapters and sections, ICEC has access to more than 120,000 cost engineers and project managers in over 120 different nations. Regular ICEC meetings are attended by delegates of the member societies where subjects of common interests are exchanged and discussed. Each member society has one vote on the Council.
