Formerly known as the INNOVATION IN CONSTRUCTION FORUM (ICF), the Forum has long been established as an important venue for the circulation of ideas, practices, and solutions among researchers and members of the construction industry in Alberta and Canada at large.

The Forum continues as a method of disseminating and highlighting construction engineering and management research initiatives being undertaken by Canadian academics and the Alberta construction industry.

Launched in 1997 by Dr. Simaan AbouRizk, the Forum established an important venue for circulating ideas, practices, and solutions among researchers and students, our partners, and members of the construction industry. Under the leadership of the Construction Innovation Centre, the Forum will continue to provide a platform to forge vital connections to the needs of construction professionals and deliver proven tools and techniques for improving and advancing construction.

The vision of the CIC Forum remains as strong today as it was over 20 years ago due to the tremendous research efforts and ingenuity of researchers dedicated to improving construction management practices, and to the partner companies engaged in the process.
