About conference

ECPPM 2020 is the 13th European Conference on Product & Process Modelling, the flagship conference event of the European Association of Product and Process Modelling (EAPPM), with a long standing history of excellence in product and process modelling in building industry, which is currently known as building information modelling (BIM). For over 25 years, the biannual ECPPM (European Conference on Product and Process Modelling) conference series, as the oldest BIM conference, has provided an unique platform for the presentation and discussion of the most recent advances with regard to the ICT (Information and Communication Technology) applications in the AEC/FM (Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Facilities Management) domains.

The series of conferences was initiated by Prof. Raimar Scherer in 1994 as a joint initiative of several European research projects related to construction information technology. ECPPM was in fact the first conference focusing on BIM. Previous conferences were successfully held in

Upcoming 13th ECPPM 2020 conference brings together the academia, research, construction industry, software development community to the topic of information management in the building and construction industry. It will provide attendees with strategic knowledge on the achievements and trends in research, development, standardisation and industrial implementation of BIM technologies.  Notwithstanding the constant and frequent spur of new information technologies, the product and process modeling remains fundamental and very important in facilitating ICT based solutions in the AEC/FM domains. Traditionally strong at ECPPM has been an overview of the EU research projects and the participation of European experts. In spite of its name, the conferences have been open and have attracted numerous researchers from overseas.
