The 7th International Megaprojects Workshop: Theory meets Practice will be hosted by the Université du Québec à Montréal (Canada), in collaboration with École de technologie supérieure, HEC Montréal, Polytechnique Montréal, Université de Montréal, and Kheops — the International Research Consortium on fhe Governance of Large Infrastructure Projects. The conference brings together leading scholars and practitioners from Canada and abroad. They will present and discuss current understandings of megaproject managemeni—seen as a complex form of planning, designing and producing large-scale capital-intensive infrastructure, and to achieve collective system-level goals.

The aim is fo create a forum that allows established and emerging scholars to present original research findings and interact with other scholars and practitioners. The conference explores whether insights from one context extend into oïher settings, and challenges fhe laïest claims and frends in research grounded in megaprojects. The conference seeks to connect theory with practice through workshops and panels.

We encourage presentations that combine fheoretically informed studies and phenomena-driven research. Papers may address generic questions on megaprojects context such as complexity, govemnance, collaboration, knowledge. For this 7th edition, we particularly welcome presentations that examine megaprojects under the influence of the emerging phenomenon of artificial intelligence.

We are pleased to invite students free of charge to the International Megaprojects Workshop: Theory Meets Practice from June 13-14, 2019.
