The developments within the field have been truly transformational this year. From the flights of drones to the perceptible walks through 3D maps; from the incorporation of AI and IoT to the 3D production of construction materials- the field has seen a huge technological shift. Introduction to the innovative materials like self-healing concrete and light generating cement has elevated the approach towards hybridization to a whole new level. The changes are palpable and very exciting.
One of the hardest things to eliminate in order to bolster development in this field has always been the strict adherence to the traditional practices. Now today, with the amicable adoption of green technologies, modular and prefabricated construction, the people in and around the industry have broken the shackles of traditionalism and braced themselves for the changed atmosphere.
Minding the continuing growth and evolution of the construction industry, everyone must stay abreast with the latest trends, innovations and technologies to remain competitive. Here are some civil engineering conferences you should look forward to being a part of in 2019 :

Nanotechnology, AI and IoT
Abstract: "Nanotechnology is still in its introductory phase
thereforethere is less awareness among Nanotechnology product manufactures that hinder the Nano market growth. Furthermore, it is not easy to use this technology for various components as in some components scaling could be different. Everyone with a predilection to share their knowledge, research and relevant information in the area of Nanotechnology, Artificial Intelligence, IOT would benefit from this conference."

- June 20-21, 2019
Building materials and construction technologies
Abstract: "The Building materials used also has played a major role in the naming of the few monuments of the past. There was a time when a structure was built by a single Building material only due to its durability. With the change in time, technology has developed so much that different materials are used in different hooks and corners of the same structure. The field is developing and shall develop to a great extent so that there is a negligible chance of collapsion of that structure."
