The conference, jointly organized by the Faculty of Architecture, the Institute of Engineering and the Faculty of Engineering of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México - unam, and the Mexican Society of Structural Engineers - smie, in partnership with other State Universities and Associations of Mexico, will provide the forum for Academics, Architects and Practitioner Structural Engineers around the world to share, discuss and review actual problems in the broad area of civil engineering and architecture. The aim of the conference is to bring together, and enhance dialogue among, worldwide professionals from a broad range of disciplines, covered by Architects and Structural Engineers. Emphasis would be given to bring the interested community from Latin America and to foster regional and international cooperation.
Mexico is devoting significant resources and efforts to maintain and rehabilitate out-of-date or damaged infrastructure as well as to build new sustainable infrastructure, adequate in size but technologically advanced and efficient. This has been done under the leadership of Mexican architects and engineers who are continuously looking for new methodologies and processes, and for advanced technologies to improve safety and reduce costs and impact on the environment.
This congress is particularly significant because works of architects and engineers will highlight areas and topics of future research, as well as latest developments in architecture and structural design.
