Rapid development and the inappropriate conservation techniques are threatening many unique sites in different parts of world. This conference aims to provide the necessary scientific knowledge required to formulate regulatory policies, to ensure effective ways of preserving the architectural heritage.

Proposals will be selected through a blind peer review by the conference committee. Authors will be notified of the Program Committee’s decision by February 15, 2015.

Development and planning problems continuously affect both rural and urban areas all over the world.
