Building Education and Research explores this new active area of research in a series of papers by internationally acclaimed experts, presented at the CIB W89 International Conference on Building Education and Research held in July 1998 (BEAR `98) in Brisbane, Australia. Sponsored in collaboratio jointly by the Queensland University of Technology, the Conseil International du Batiment (CIB) and the Australian Institute of Building (AIB), the conference was organised around the theme `Building Research and Education Beyond 2000' and looks at the factors that are changing the requirements of building education and research: economic and technological concerns; environmental concerns; government policies; Industries' demands; re-evaluation of community expectations.
