Call For Papers

The Middle East region has been shaken by violent turmoil and civil wars which resulted in painful human suffering, forced immigration and massive destruction to the region's cities and infrastruvture.



This conference aims to emphasize the role of civil engineers towards leading the reconstructions of the region.

The topics of the conference are oriented towards reconstruction, rehabillition and retrofitting of structure and infrastuctures of the region. The conference encourges the contribution of practical applications and case studies in the following disciplines:

1) Engineering System in Reconstruction
- Systems and Sustainability
- Systems Performance Analysis
- Economic Decision-Making Tools and Project Evaluation

2) Structural Engineering
- Structural analysis and design of buildings and facilities for blast resistance and protection
- Demand versus capacity analysis of structural sections or reduced section due to natural or manmade event
- Re-cycling of damaged concrete structural and reinforcement
- Approaches towards design of environmentally conscious structures
- New international codes for assessment and retrofitting of existing structures

3) Highways, Railways, and Traffic Management
- Damage assessment of roadways and railways
- New techniques in rehabilitation of roadways and railways
- Optimal utilization of resources and the use of unconventional materials and techniques
- Environmental issues and use of recycling material in reconstruction
- Planning for integrated transportation systems
- Funding of transportation projects

4) Project Mangement, Contracts and Arbitration
- Project management approaches for reconstruction projects
- Appropriate engineering services contracts
- Appropriate works contracts
- Special conditions and requirements in contracts for reconstruction projects
- Alternative dispute resolution mechanisms for reconstruction projects
- The interplay between local laws and contracts particular for reconstruction projects
- Arbitration

5) Geotechnical and Foundation Engineering
- Damage to foundation of buildings and bridges
- Repair and strengthening of foundations
- Utilization of existing foundations of damaged buildings
- New methods in the design and construction of earth retaining structures
- Dams assessment and repair
- Retaining walls damage and repair

6) Innovative Materials For Sustainable Construction and Repair
- Innovative materials for speedy construction
- Innovative materials for low cost construction
- Innovative materials for retrofitting and repair of damaged structures
- Innovative materials for sustainable construction
- Innovative materials for construction of environmentally friendly structures

7) Water and Enviromental Engineering
- Water provision in areas under conflict
- Sustainable desalination with focus on improving energy efficiency; use of renewable energy and minimize emissions of greenhouse
- Recovery of water, energy and nutrients with a focus on emerging processes that have the goal of recovering resources present in ‘used water’
- Decentralized/ eco-technologies for wastewater treatment
- Sludge treatment
- Cost estimations
- Simplified, free-solids, vacuum sewerage networks

8) Rehabilitation and Retrofitting of Structures and Infrastructures
- Assessment and rehabilitation of buildings/ structures and infrastructures and cultural heritage
- Pre- and post-disasters (earthquake/flood/fire). Assessment and safety of buildings/ structures and infrastructures
- Seismic vulnerability assessment and mitigation
- Innovative strengthening and repair techniques and materials
- Disaster risk reduction and management
- Role of forensic and assessment engineering
