Dear ICEC Officers, Member Associations & Interested Parties,


Please see below the latest information on the International Cost Engineering Council (ICEC)/Pacific Association of Quantity Surveyors (PAQS) Joint World Congress being held in Sydney, Australia from 18-20 November 2018. This will be preceded by the ICEC Council Meeting on 15-16 November and the PAQS Board Meeting on 17 November 2018 all at the same venue. The host and organisers are the Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (AIQS).

You will see below the Call for Paper Abstracts – date for submission closes Monday 30 April. Please consider submitting a paper at the Congress – provision has been made for submission of both academic and technical papers (from industry professionals).


The Congress website also includes information about visa requirements for Australia. Under Australia’s universal visa system, all visitors to Australia must have a valid visa to travel to and enter Australia (except New Zealand in most circumstances). Attached is general information about these visa requirements from the Australian Government. The conference is registered with the International Event Coordinator Network (IECN) of the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP). The AIQS will provide details of speakers, ICEC & PAQS Board representatives and paid registered delegates through the IECN to aid in the VISA application process. During the online registration process the AIQS will request specific details required by the IECN for this purpose.


If you have any queries about the visa process, visa letters of invitation and any other details about the conference please contact:
