Welcome to iSTE-CE'2019 (June, 13-15th)
Welcome to the official website of the International Conference on Innovation, Sustainability, Technology and Education in Civil Engineering (iSTE-CE'2019).
Construction is one of the oldest industries. However, new concepts, new technologies, new materials and new approaches promise to change the landscape of this industry. Things are surely changing although the construction sector' change seems not as fast as in other sectors. The construction industry is creating many job opportunities and added value. Thus, it is called the locomotive sector by many.
Innovative methods and technological advancements should be researched as a solution to the problems faced by the industry. Leaving a better livelihood for future generations should be our most important goal. Close cooperation among scientists and stakeholders is necessary. We hope that this conference will bring the scientists including other disciplines and experts from the field together to increase our knowledge and encourage our cooperation toward a better world.
Hoping to meet you in Iskenderun.
On behalf of the conference organization committee.
Prof. Dr. Umur Korkut SEVİM
