2019 BIMForum – Call For Presentations

By BIMForum | Posted in Articles, BIMForum News

 

Call for Proposals | 2019

The BIMForum is now accepting proposals for the 2019 conference, September 16 – September 18 at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch, St Louis, MO.

BIMForum is looking to highlight case studies of how the building community is driving quantitative and qualitative outcomes through the development of model-centric workflows that address the entire design-build-operate continuum. In addition, we’re seeking to better understand the current cultural shifts and revisit the “human side of BIM” from past BIMForums. This will enable us to drive a better understanding of leadership qualities and strategies needed to produce the return on investment of BIM that comes from the refinement of traditional workflows and business practices as well as the growth of collaborative project delivery strategies. In the spirit of the conference being in the “Show Me State,” preference will be given to those presentations capable of demonstrating tangible examples of how metric-based results were achieved within the areas of interest defined above. Additional areas of interest are case studies on the following:

  • Model-centric workflows, model reliability, less reliance on drawings.
  • The scalability of a BIM to address project delivery models beyond Design-Bid-Build, such as Design-Build, Design Assist and IPD.
  • Legal challenges of BIM, what went wrong?
  • Advances in BIM contract language.
  • Implementation of BIM Execution Plans.
  • Standards for the use of BIM and data throughout the lifecycle of projects.
  • Owners leveraging LOD to define deliverables.
  • Best practices for laser scanning and reality capture in building documentation.
  • Peer-reviewed research specifically addressing results of BIM use and/or the BIMForum LOD Specification.
  • Value in leveraging IFC and open standards.

Submission Deadline: Monday, December 17, 2018 at 11:59pm EST.

For consideration, please submit your proposals here.
