Joint Conferences APSEC - EACEF 2009




APSEC 2009 is an international conference focusing on topics related to structural engineering and construction. The 1st APSEC conference was held in 1989 in the historical city of Malacca. Since then the conference was held regularly at every three years and had attracted many researchers, academics and engineers from local and foreign. APSEC 2009 is set up as a strong platform to fruitful interaction and exchange of ideas, the latest technological advances, research results, design innovations as well as state-of-the-art information in the field of structural analysis, design, experiment and construction between scientists and engineers from both the academia and industry.

The 1st EACEF Conference was held in September 2007 organised by Universitas Pelita Harapan, Jakarta, Indonesia, held at the Universitas Pelita Harapan (UPH) Global Campus, located in Jakarta. The main objective of the two day conference was to provide a forum among European and Asian engineers in research and practice to present and to discuss the state-of-the-art as well as new research development in the field of Civil Engineering. The 2nd EACEF to be organised by Universiti Teknologi Malaysia and joint partner with Universitas Pelita Harapan. The 2nd EACEF will be held simultaneously with APSEC 2009.

The theme “Innovative and Sustainable Construction for Mankind” expresses a wide range of issues and development to be discussed in the conference.

Engineers, architects, quantity surveyors, researchers, academics, contractors and developers are invited to attend this conference. The conference highlights a wide range of issues to enhance knowledge, increase awareness and explore new ideas and thinking in structures and constructions. Therefore paper(s) are invited to address any of the following aspects:

Industrialised Building System (IBS)
Construction Management
Disaster Mitigation
Safety and Reliability

Non-destructive Test (NDT)

Sustainable Buildings
Building Maintenance and Pathology
Bridge Engineering
Soil-Structures Interaction
Structural Analysis and Design
Engineering Education and Training
Innovative Construction Materials
Information Technology (IT) in construction
Research and Innovation
Material Behaviour
Construction Management
Construction and Environmental Issues
Composite Structures

The Organising Committee invites you to present paper(s) and/or participate in the Technical Session of the Conference. The successes and achievement gained in the last conferences have been remarkable and we are confident that this APSEC-EACEF 2009 will bring significant benefits to the industry. Your support and participation will be much appreciated. Please bring along your colleagues and friends to join us. You may visit the scenic, cultural and historical places in Malaysia during the week of the conference.

The Organising Committee looks forward to seeing you at APSEC-EACEF 2009
