Special Issue from The Eastman Symposium
In honour of Charles “Chuck” Eastman, the late Professor Emeritus in the School of Architecture at Georgia Tech and founder of the Digital Building Lab, both ITcon and Construction Management and Economics will be compiling a federated special edition based on the conversations and commemorations at the forthcoming Eastman Symposium in May 2021. Eastman was well-known in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry as one of the originators of design computing including applications for computer-aided design (CAD) and building information modelling (BIM). As the headline of the Eastman Symposium summed up, his thought leadership has inspired generations of digitally-minded architects equipped new capabilities and ways of designing and producing the built environment. While it is important to commemorate the legacy of Eastman, ongoing transformations such as the fourth industrial revolution (or Construction 4.0) also call for new technical and organisational transformation that builds on and even challenges the foundational knowledge created by Eastman and his proteges. It is in this spirit that this federated special issue in ITcon and Construction Management and Economics is intended.
We welcome a diversity of contributions in addition to traditional empirical research papers, including e.g. critical reviews, position papers, policy reviews, essays and book reviews. Prospective authors should pay attention to the submission guidelines of ITcon (for papers that have a stronger technical orientation) and Construction Management and Economics (for papers that have a stronger orientation towards organisation, management and economic aspects).
