About APSEC

baner APSEC-ACEC-2015 (2) (1024x261)
APSEC 2015
is an international conference focusing on topics related to structural engineering and construction. The 1st APSEC conference was held in 1989 in the historical city of Malacca. Since then the conference was held regularly at every three years and had attracted many researchers, academicians and engineers from local and abroad. The previous 8th APSEC 2012 was jointly organised with Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS), Indonesia and was held at Mercure Hotel, Surabaya, Indonesia. APSEC 2015 is organized to provide platform for exchanging ideas on latest advances in research and innovations, as well as state-of-the-art information in the fields of structural engineering and construction between scientists and engineers from both the academia and industries.

The theme “Sustaining the world with better structures and construction practice” expresses a wide range of issues to be discussed in the conference.

This year conference will be organised by the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Malaysia. The Organising Committee invites you to present paper(s) and/or participate in the Technical Sessions. The success and achievement gained in the previous APSEC conferences have been remarkable and we are confident that this APSEC 2015 will bring significant benefits to the participants. Engineers, architects, quantity surveyors, researchers, academics, research students, contractors and developers are invited to attend this conference. For APSEC 2015, the conference will be held at the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia International Campus at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
