The Academic Interoperability Coalition is sponsoring its annual Academic Symposium to be held on Monday, April 3, followed by a half-day BIM Job Task Analysis Review on Tuesday, April 4, in Boston, MA. The objective of this Academic Workshop is to gather representatives of different academic programs and industry to discuss learning approaches to be incorporated at different levels of college curriculum. The effort is intended to generate collaboration throughout architecture, engineering, construction, owner, and operator (AECOO) industry.
