IGLC Conference

The 25th Annual Conference of the International Group for Lean Construction

LC3 will also include a doctoral paper competition, the LC3 Mentoring programme, and several social and networking events. This unique Congress provides exceptional value for academic researchers and industry practitioners.

We welcome submissions from academia and from industry on all areas of Computing and Lean in the broader Architecture, Engineering, Construction, and Facilities Management (AEC/FM) industry. Similar to computer science conferences, LC3 has a single submission and peer-review stage (i.e. short abstract submission is optional), with re-reviews only when requested by the reviewers.

LC3 promises to be an exciting congress with regard to the quality and diversity of its participants. LC3 will promote and value high-quality contributions to the Construction IT and Management community by offering unique value to authors and to the community, including:

  • Best papers as keynote speeches
  • Best papers in special issues of international journals
  • Awards
  • Open Access
  • DOI numbers
  • Presentation Videos

We look forward to seeing you in Crete!
