On June 15, Belfast’s Ulster University will host the 2018 International Congress on Architectural Technology (ICAT) bringing scholars together from around the world.
The International Congress on Architectural Technology presents the best research in the field. ICAT was formed in 2007 in Denmark arising from a meeting of Architectural Technology educators under the chairmanship of Dr Niels Barrett. The purpose of the Congress is to contribute to the progression of research within the discipline of Architectural Technology worldwide and to publish the results for the benefit of society and as a means to encourage research and scholarship within the field of Architectural Technology.
The Board of the Congress facilitates a biennial conference and secures publishing of the conference proceedings. There have been conferences held around Europe in the past decade, hosted by third-level colleges. ICAT 2018 is the seventh Congress. Previous ICAT Congresses have been hosted as follows: Copenhagen 2008 – Hosted by KEA Copenhagen School of Design & Technology; Amsterdam 2010 – Hosted by the Hogeschool van Amsterdam; Dublin 2011 – Hosted by Dublin Institute of Technology; Sheffield 2013 – Hosted by Sheffield Hallam University; Aberdeen 2014 – Hosted by Robert Gordon University; Alicante 2016 – Hosted by University of Alicante – Universidad de Alicante.
