Introduction

There is a wealth of architectural heritage worldwide, from historic city centers and cultural landscapes to some of the largest archaeological sites in the world. Conserving such inheritance is a challenging task that requires sustained commitment, interdisciplinary effort, and international cooperation. The Ministry of Tourism will be attending this conference in order to join us in spreading the awareness for the preservation and conservation of our historical and architectural heritage.

 IEREK seeks to address the complex challenge of conserving architectural heritage through this conference to increase the awareness of how citizens should value and save our heritage more effectively.

 This conference is planned to be held on board; a Nile cruise between Luxor and Aswan, Egypt. Overlooking the Nile River, these two cities include a considerable percentage of the world’s monuments, thereby offering a historic context to the conference.

 This conference helps university researchers, professionals, and policy makers to get together to discuss the most pressing issues concerning the conservation of archaeological, architectural, and urban landscapes. More specifically, the main goal of the conference is to discuss multi-disciplinary research on complex Cultural Heritage sites, ranging from archaeological ruins to historical architecture and centers.

 Scientific research will foster the attempt to improve the know-how in the field. Expected results include a better understanding of the problems facing architectural heritage, the development of policies favoring its conservation, the definition of practical guidelines and the organization of training and awareness activities.

Publication

The conference proceedings will be published by ELSEVIER at the Procedia journal “Social and Behavioral Sciences”. ELSEVIER shall include the journal as a part of (Sciencedirect.com) services and shall be openly accessed. The Participants are granted internationally recognized certificates from Universita Kore Enna and IEREK which will be added to their certificates of experience or could be presented to the official authorities concerned.
