summary:On 17-21 June 2019, the Conseil International du Bâtiment (CIB) World Building Congress 2019 (WBC 2019) on Constructing Smart Cities took place in The Hong Kong Polytechnic University with the host being the Department of Building and Real Estate. This triennial international congress facilitated the in-depth exchange of research ideas on the aspects of smart construction using information technologies, including “smart transportation and mobility”, and “smart planning, design, construction”. Besides, the CIB Working Commission Group WC78 emphasised the importance of using the up-to-date information technologies for smart city development. The fruitful discussions fostered the close collaboration between academia and practitioners. Built upon the research works presented in the CIB WBC 2019, outstanding conference papers were selected and invited for enriching the contents which were accepted for publication after rigorous peer review in this special issue of “Journal of Information Technology in Construction” which aims to promote the research interest of the information technologies in smart city development. Highlights of each paper is provided below for readers’ reference.
