2nd International Conference on Advances in Civil and Environmental Engineering (ICACEE-2023) will be held on 22-23 February 2023 at UET Taxila, Pakistan.

The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, University of Engineering and Technology Taxila, organized its 1st International Conference of UET Taxila on 22nd and 23rd February 2022. It was a two-day International Conference that attracted various international and national researchers from the field of Civil and Environmental Engineering to share their knowledge and experience about the advances in this engineering field with young researchers. 

As an annual conference, the department has planned to continue organizing this international conference. The aim of this conference is to bring together renowned researchers from academia and industry who will share their expert knowledge on the latest theoretical, experimental, and practical domains of Civil and Environmental engineering. The event will also include a 0.5-point CPD activity on the second day.

We welcome participation from academics and researchers, including students and industry professionals. Additionally, this opportunity will allow academia and industry to close the gap between their respective fields of study and industrial endeavours.

  • Accepted papers will be published to Sustainable Structures and Materials: An International Journal (https://www.ssmij.org/index.php/ssm)
  • 1.5 CPD points to all the authors
  • 30-80% discount to 2/3 best papers for publication in Sustainability (An Open Access Journal from MDPI, IF = 3.89)
  • 3 papers for publication in Technical Journal of UET Taxila (HEC Y category)
