Melbourne has secured the 9th International Symposium on Life-cycle Civil Engineering (IALCCE2025), a series of symposia under the auspices of the International Association of Life-cycle Civil Engineering (IALCCE).
The business event for civil engineers will take place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from July 15-19, 2025, and focus on advancing cutting-edge research and practice in the field of life-cycle civil engineering.
IALCCE2025 aims to foster sustainable development of civil engineering works, generating economic, social, and environmental benefits for humanity. One of the themes will revolve around the whole life design of carbon-neutral infrastructure, emphasising methodologies and technologies that effectively reduce and control carbon emissions at every stage of the infrastructure life-cycle, thus contributing significantly to mitigating global warming.
Beyond the technical themes and programmes, IALCCE2025’s social events, including the Reception and Gala dinner, will showcase a quintessential “Australian flavour,” featuring an OZ BBQ and Australian Rules football matches.
The winning bid was led by the Melbourne Convention Bureau, in partnership with RMIT University and with support from the Victorian Government.
