CBC International Symposium

6-7 June 2019 | Paris, France


Digital Trust in the Built Environment

The CBC is pleased to announce its first International Symposium titled Digital Trust in the Built Environment. Held in collaboration with the Scientific and Technical Centre for Building (CSTB) in Paris, the symposium will bring together leaders in the field of BIM, Distributed Ledgers, Semantic Web and the Internet of Things (IOT) to ask:

How can we make blockchain work to transform the production and operation of Smart Environments?”

The symposium will be themed following the CBC’s workstreams: Legal and Financing; Design, Construction and Safety Processes; Operations and Building Services; and Culture, Compliance and Policy. The CBC will be presenting its progress on its white papers in each of these areas and invite discussion with experts from across industry and academia.
