ICIS will become a principal U.S. center for new information, ideas,
and collaborations about civil infrastructure systems and their
role in modern communities.
ICIS works with community representatives, political leaders, applied
social scientists, engineers and members of other disciplines and
interest groups to integrate their perspectives and skills into
infrastructure planning and decision-making. It will improve the
process of developing civil infrastructure through innovations in
community programs, information exchange, public policy, applications
of advanced technology, and education. ICIS provides a foundation
of activities to look at infrastructure from the perspectives of
the users and communities.
