Conference Theme
Interaction between Theory and Practice in Civil Engineering and Construction

Dear Colleagues and Friends,
On behalf of the ISEC Society and the Yildiz Technical University, it is our privilege to cordially invite you to participate in the First European-Mediterranean Section of ISEC Society Conference (EURO-MED-SEC-1), to be held in the beautiful and historical city of Istanbul, May 24-29, 2016.

We are very pleased to organize this Conference at a location where historically Eastern and Western cultures have come together for business, commerce, education, and dialog. This Conference promises to provide excellence and rigor in technical presentations and content, and to provide an opportunity for the exchange of the latest research and findings by active world researchers, academicians, engineers, and construction managers. All submitted manuscripts will go thorough a peer review process, and those accepted will be published in the Conference Proceedings.

Istanbul is the historical and cultural center of Turkey and was named the European Capital of Culture in 2012. Historical monuments, museums, the beautiful Bosphorus and the Grand Bazaar are only a few tourist attractions to be named. The Conference Local Committee will provide unforgettable guided cultural tours in the greater Istanbul proper for conference delegates and their guests. Technical tours to famous engineering and architectural landmarks will also be provided.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Istanbul in summer of 2016.

Best wishes,

Professor Amarjit Singh
President, ISEC Society

Professor Siamak Yazdani
ISEC Society Secretary
