Fourth Intemational Conference on Civil Engineering The conference wiill be held in May 1997 in Tehran, Iran. It has been organized by the Department of Civil Engineering at Sharif University of Technology in cooperation with the University of Shiraz and Isfahan University of Technology. Papers, posters, exhibitions, and workshops on state-of-the-art techniques, innovations, developments and latest research findings may be presented on the topics listed.
Conference overview Civil engineers play a central role in promoting better living conditions, social progress and the development of a better world. Thus, civil engineering has been awarded special attention and considerable investment has been made towards its betterment. This international gathering will explore innovations and the transfer and adaption of new and appropriate technologies in civil engineering. It will be an opportunity for experts and researchers to showcase their latest achievements and to learn about the contributions of other individuals in allied areas of civil engineering. The conference will provide a forum from which researchers and practilfioners from around the world can discuss the complex and urgent issues facing the civil engineering industry. Sustainable development and its importance in international scientific societies will also be discussed.
H o w to submit papel~s Abstracts of approximately 300 words, in English or Farsi, should be submitted by mail. Upon accep-
tance of the abstracts, the authors should submit full papers. Abstracts and full papers will be reviewed by a scientific committee.
