Joint Conference APSEC-EACEF 2009

4 – 6 August 2009 | Awana Porto Malai Langkawi, Malaysia


Posted by nasly on August 6, 2009

We have listened to about 100 papers presented as six keynote papers as well as technical papers  in 5 parallel sessions each with their own special fields. The presentation and the question and answers sessions have been successful ones in the  sense that they were not only presenting the ideas but a knowledge sharing and comments for further improvements.

I believe that we should share our knowledge and develop joint understanding of the problems and their solutions. We are now exerting genuine efforts, which demand integration of different perspectives and your expertise.  Reflecting the importance of innovation and sustainability issues not only for the constituents of this region only but also for the whole world, it’s expected that a wider platform for collaboration with the other regions of the world will provide a worldwide platform to discuss the issues.

I would like first of all to thank the organizing committee  who have been with me through thick and thin, for the endless effort to ensure the progress and the successful organisation of the conference. My special thanks  also goes to the Department of Structures and Materials, the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia.

I would also wish to express similar thanks, appreciation and congratulation to all presenters for their hard work in preparing , presenting the papers and also for the effort to travel to Langkawi Island. Also special thanks to our key note speakers for their notable presentation hence reflect the expertise of their areas of specialisation.

Last but not least our special appreciation to Ministry of Tourism Malaysia, CREAM CIDB ,and KLIA Holdings Sdn Bhd who kindly supported us financially and other supporters such as JKR, BEM,  STC, CETU and CTMC. We hope that support will continue in future events.

On the last day  we went on the island tour, introducing you to exotic Malaysia truly Asia.  There was time also for shopping for souveniers which we hope that you would bring back happy memories of Malaysia, a unique country  with multi racial and multi cultural origins.

On behalf of the organising committee, we hope that everyone enjoyed the conference and have safe journey home.

EACEF is a two yearly event while APSEC is a three yearly event.

Keep in touch, See you in 8th APSEC 2012.
