Abstract: Proceedings of the Eighth International Conference on Computing in Civil and Building Engineering, held in Stanford, California, August 14-16, 2000. Sponsored by the Committee on Coordination Outside ASCE of the Technical Council on Computing and Information Technology of ASCE; Board of Directors of the International Society on Computing in Civil and Structural Engineering; Project Based Learning Laboratory, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Stanford University; Center for Integrated Facility Engineering, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Stanford University. This collection of 205 technical papers explores the latest in advanced computing theory and technologies; computing applications in civil and building engineering practice and education; and computing issues, experiences, and lessons learned. Topics include: project life-cycle; Internet and data mining; e-commerce; e-code checking; e-learning; seismic analysis; AEC education; standards; interoperability; CAD, GIS, and GPS; multimedia and virtual reality; 3D and 4D planning in construction; fuzzy sets; neural networks and genetic algorithms; product and process modeling; human factors and future workspaces; structural modeling and analysis; optimization; transportation; tall building analysis and design; water-related projects; support for client requirements and bidding; road maintenance and management; project control, scheduling, and cost; simulation of nonrectilinear structures; FEM and bridges; and simulation-based design.
