Conference Chair Note
Yazd University is honored to host the 2th International and 6th National Conference on Modern Materials and Structures in Civil Engineering from 11 to 12 October, 2017.
The first five sessions of the conference were held annually in Kerman, Esfahan, Semnan, Yasuj and Tehran, respectively. The last session, organized by Amirkabir University of Tehran, attracted a worldwide attention and brought together academics, researchers, and practitioners from around the world. We truly hope to welcome you again, this time in our beautiful city, Yazd.
Besides presentations of submitted articles, educational professional workshops will be held during the program. Moreover, the most recent technological developments will be exposed to the attendees in the form of an exhibition. We also hope to create a memorable closing ceremony on the last day of the conference, thus a city tour has been planned to take you to the historical wonders of Yazd. Certainly, your attendance in the conference would be an opportunity not only to enjoy the marvels of the second largest adobe city of the world, but also to benefit from exchange of ideas and information with the world-class professors and experts. It is undoubtable that the accomplishments of the conference will reciprocally help us to take steps toward control of problems and shortcomings in construction industry.
We are truly looking forward to seeing you.
