What to Expect

In keeping with the global impact of Professor Eastman’s work, the individual sessions will be chaired by experts from around the world.

The symposium will be anchored by two real-time networking sessions, where Chuck’s friends and family will gather.  The symposium will include two keynote lectures from Eastman’s closest colleagues and 14 academic paper sessions focused on research topics initiated and championed by Chuck over his 55-year research career.

And, to acknowledge his impact on the practices of design and construction, two industry panel discussions will focus on the impacts BIM and related technologies have had on the AEC industry.
