Conference topics

Digitalisation is a broad topic with multiple sub-domains. ECPPM acknowledges that the long list of themes associated are still relevant with significant activity in research.

The overarching statement of ECPPM 2022 is:

‘the integration of technology, process and people –a multi-perspective view to innovation.’

The following topics and applications are given special attention:

Sustainable and Circular Driven Digitalisation:

Data driven design and/or decision support Assessment and documentation of sustainability Information lifecycle - collect, process and present Environmental product documentation

Digital Enabled Collaboration:

Integrated and multi-disciplinary processes, e.g. Lean Construction or Virtual Design and Construction (VDC)

Automation of Processes:

Automation of design and engineering processes (e.g. BIM based model and compliance checking) Parametric Modelling Robotic Process Automation Product data templates

Enabling Technologies:

Machine Learning, Big Data, Artifical and Augmented Intelligence \ Digital Twins and/or Semantic Technology Sensors and IoT Production with Robots and Autonomous Machinery New combinations and applications of existing technical solutions

Framework for Implementation:

ISO 19650, and other international (ISO), European (CEN) and national standard Digital Platforms and Ecosystems

Human Factors in Digital Application:

Digital Innovation and Economy of Digitalisation Client, Organisational, Team and/or Individual perspectives

The following are keywords and themes which are also considered:

Best Student Paper Award

The Steering Committee encourages student participation by awarding the best paper and live presentation at the ECPPM 2022 conference.

Papers should satisfy the ECPPM paper submission requirements and be submitted by the paper submission deadline. Each paper accepted for the award should be presented by the primary author, who must be a student, and registered for ECPPM 2022. Each registered student can be put forward for the award, however each student can only submit a single paper for award consideration.

Participation: All students are encouraged to participate.

Main goal with Best Student Paper Award: This is an excellent opportunity for personal leadership and involvement of students in prospective scientific/technical activities. It gives the possibility for all participants i.e. students, supervisors, professors to be involved and to participate in an important and interesting student activity.

Criteria: Papers should be relevant to the scope of the conference. The work doesn’t have to be original in engineering content but should be original in treatment and concise in coverage of the author’s contribution to the subject.

Other awards (in preparation): Informal awards based on activities during the conference. Voting will be done by the conference participants.


The ECPPM 2022 conference program will consist of:

Scientific presentations with questions and comments from audience.

Workshops: Scientific, Research projects and Industry (see Workshop section)

The programme is to be updated when abstract submissions close.


The conference will be held at the Scandic Lerkendal Hotel in Trondheim, Norway. The venue is also the recommended accommodation during the duration of the conference.

Conference Facilities:

It is one of Norway’s largest conference facilities and among the world’s most environmentally friendly buildings. This means that ECPPM 2022 will have ample facilities to include workshops, industry sessions, demonstrations in addition to scientific presentations.

The hotel is located in short proximity to the main campus of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. It is located 30 minutes (a scenic walk) from the centre of Trondheim or a short bus ride.

Scandic Lerkendal is also the recommended hotel for accommodation during the conference, it has also been selected as the preference because of networking events each evening. The fixed price for accommodation of 1200NOK (approx. 120 Euros) has been set for any conference attendees, this includes breakfast.

Getting there:

There is a direct bus from Trondheim Værnes airport which stops in front of the hotel. The stop names are FB 73 Scandic Lerkendal (Hotel) and Trondheim Lufthavn Værnes (Airport).

For more information about the bus please visit: Vaernes-Ekspressen.


The conference registration costs are to be confirmed in due course.

Early indications suggest that student registration costs will be approximately EUR 420.
