Committees

The IICTG committees include Steering Committee (up to 16 members) and Technical Committee (up to 40 members).
Both Committees consist of international professionals and experts in geotechnical engineering, pavement engineering, construction equipment, testing, monitoring, and cloud data management related to intelligent construction technologies. Only the Steering Committee has voting rights. Details about the responsibilities of committee members are described in the Bylaws.

There are also standing Task Groups for specific tasks. Task Group leaders can be from Steering Committee or Technical Committee. There are no restrictions for Task Group members.
