ICSI 2021 Goes Virtual 

To lean into ASCE’s sustainability efforts to mitigate environmental effects and use resources wisely, ASCE’s International Conferences on Sustainable Infrastructure (ICSI) 2021 will be held as a virtual event. The dates of ICSI 2021 will be December 6-10th. We hope you will join us in this multi-day, multi-faceted program!

Powered by the ICSI Steering Committee based in Houston, the 2021 event will bring together leaders to discuss leveraging sustainable infrastructure for resilient communities.  The program will offer content from across the globe, but have several highlights on sustainability initiatives in Houston, Texas. We hope you will join us virtually for plenary sessions, technical discussions, along with opportunities for Q&A and networking, connecting with virtual exhibitors, and to earn professional development hours.  

We look forward to ‘seeing you’ at ICSI 2021!

Virtual Program

This gathering of civil engineers, infrastructure managers, architects, policymakers, technology experts, and related professionals will provide a showcase for the latest developments and advancements in design, construction, technology, policy, and education related to sustainable and resilient infrastructure and offers a forum to discuss and debate planning resilient communities while preparing for the unknown.

Crosscutting themes will include:

  • Urbanization
  • Public Policy
  • Equity and Social Justice
  • Infrastructure Financing and Management
  • Education, Workforce Diversity, and Outreach
  • Supply Chain
  • Social Impact and Stakeholder Engagement
  • Disaster Mitigation and Recovery
  • Disruptive Innovations
  • Community Resiliency in the Face of Climate Change
  • Sustainable Technologies, Materials, and Designs
  • Public Health and Recovery from Pandemics
  • Energy Supplies and Distribution

Given the global implications of burgeoning urbanization and the stewardship of existing and new public infrastructure, ICSI 2021 will focus on what is known and what is not known about the cities of the future.
