The world is currently facing many changes that have imposed themselves in different successive times, which brought new challenges in all areas of life. For the fact that the Architecture and Built Environment are two of the daily life fields, they have been affected by these changes, and are facing all current challenges in turn.
If the housing problem, specially the provision of adequate housing to low-income people and also the issue of urban development remained among the current challenges for a long time, there is a fact that other challenges have emerged recently, such as sustainability and environmental challenges, and the issue of digital revolution as well. Also an increased attention has been given to issues like the conservation of architectural, urban and cultural heritage, and finally the challenge of global economic crisis and its negative consequences on architecture and Built Environment. Hence, the idea of this conference through the review of some contemporary issues, is to invite for a scientific Forum, to give different researchers the chance to view their up to date researches and studies regarding these contemporary issues.
