International Conference on Advances in Structural and Geotechnical Engineering, 2017


27 March 2017 - 30 March 2017


sahl hashesh road, Qesm Hurghada, Red Sea Governorate, Egypt

About conference

The conference shall provide a forum for researchers and professionals from various fields related to the theory of structures, soil mechanics and foundation engineering, reinforced concrete constructions, properties and testing of materials, environmental engineering, steel constructions, construction management, etc…, as well as other related areas, to exchange and discuss the latest findings and experiences. The Conference program includes invited keynote lectures, a limited number of oral presentations, and poster presentations. The official language of the Conference is English.

The articles received by the conference will go through a peer review process and the passed articles shall be published in a conference proceeding. Moreover, selected articles will be published in a relevant international journal.
All participants will have a chance to build professional networks, talk with speakers and organizers, make new contacts and enjoy the conference. The organizing committee hope to assist senior and young engineers, researchers, and specialized academics to come together and update their knowledge and understanding regarding the advances in structural and geotechnical engineering issues.
We will continue with the surprise parties, journeys, actions and small little personal touches as we did on first conference. The conference is there for you, attendees and speakers, and we will make you feel like home.


All the information you need about ICASGE will be uploaded here in the months leading up to the event. Should you have suggestions for the conference content, let us know. Your feedback is important and always welcome.
