Welcome from our Conference Chair
Dr. Ashraf El Damatty, Conference Chair
Dear friends and colleagues,
On behalf of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) and the Local Organizing Committee, it is my pleasure to extend a warm invitation to the CSCE Conference in Niagara Falls in June 2024. The conference promises to be an exciting gathering of professionals from all corners of the civil engineering industry, as we come together to explore the theme of "Adapting to Climate, Technology and Growth."
The conference will be an opportunity for us to share our knowledge and experience as we discuss how the civil engineering industry can take leadership in addressing the compounding challenges of climate change and unprecedented urbanization. It will provide a forum to discuss the adaptation of technologies in the design and management of the next generation of smart and resilient infrastructure to create an urban environment geared toward achieving sustainability and wellbeing for both people and the natural environment. Through interactive sessions, keynote speeches, presentations of peer-reviewed papers and relevant case studies, and networking events, we will delve deep into the latest research and best practices in our field.
The conference will be held in the province of Ontario, well known as an economic and technological powerhouse in Canada and home to a very diverse population. Niagara Falls, world-renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty, provides an ideal setting for the 2024 CSCE Conference. Home to one of the most spectacular waterfalls on the planet, Niagara Falls also boasts a rich cultural heritage and history, with a wide range of attractions and activities including historical engineering marvels. The 2024 CSCE Conference will be hosted at the Sheraton Fallsview Hotel, boasting a spectacular view of the falls that are located just steps away. A variety of activities are being planned to entertain conference delegates and their guest family and friends.
We look forward to welcoming you to this vibrant and picturesque city and exploring the latest developments in our industry together.
