International Research Conference Aims and Objectives
The ICMSPP 2018: 20th International Conference on Masonry Structures, Planning and Practice
aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Masonry Structures, Planning and Practice. It also provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of Masonry Structures, Planning and Practice.
Call for Contributions
All honorable authors are kindly encouraged to contribute to and help shape the conference through submissions of their research abstracts, papers and e-posters. Also, high quality research contributions describing original and unpublished results of conceptual, constructive, empirical, experimental, or theoretical work in all areas of Masonry Structures, Planning and Practice are cordially invited for presentation at the conference. The conference solicits contributions of abstracts, papers and e-posters that address themes and topics of the conference, including figures, tables and references of novel research materials.WASET
International research conference series is an event that brings together significant number of recurring events; academic conferences, symposia, workshops, special sessions, and plenary talks in all field of science and technology since inception in 1999. Each event may run over any span of time within the conference days.
All submitted conference papers will be blind peer reviewed by three competent reviewers. The peer-reviewed conference proceedings are indexed in the International Science Index (ISI)
