Introduction

Nowadays, engineering technology has to cope with the rapid industrialization and urbanization seen in most countries. Creative design and construction practices are challenging tasks to the architects and engineers to meet the ever growing demands of society.

Representing the first international conference on Architectural and Engineering Technology in the form of presentation of new developments and research results in these fields.

The International Conference on Architecture, Engineering and Technologies aims to invite scientists, scholars, engineers and students from the universities and the research institutes from all over the world to present research activities and research findings, and thus to foster research relations. We hope that the outcome AET 2018 will yield significant contribution to the knowledge in the emerging areas of Architecture, Design, Engineering and Technology.

This conference provides excellent chances for the delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences face to face, to establish research or business relations and to find global partners for future collaboration. It also serves to boost communication among researchers and practitioners working in a wide variety of scientific areas with a common interest in improving Material, Architecture, and Engineering Technology- related strategies.

Benefits of Attending

Why attend this conference?
Attending a conference isn’t all about personal and career development. Since there are so many high-quality conferences and events put on each year, you actually need to opine about which ones you should go to and which you’ll benefit most from.

You not only get to hear presentations but also converse with other researchers from different universities and even countries you may have only heard or read about. It is a great opportunity to discover more about Engineering technology and listen to ideas that could help inspire research ideas of your own.

Not to mention, taking an overview of the place or urban center where the conference is being entertained and learning around its people and civilization
When designing our course of studies we are continuously aware of the fine balance between theory and practice therfore, It is an opportunity to engage with respectable professors and discuss with them the very latest research projects they could be working on.

Delegates will have the choice of receiving the conference proceedings as either a hard cover book or in digital format on a USB flash drive. The USB flash drive will additionally contain proceedings from previous conferences in this series.

Participation Procedures

Once an abstract is submitted, it will be sent to the reviewers committee to go through the revision process:

Elementary Review:

Once an abstract has been submitted to our website, it is assigned for review by the reviewers using the abstract review sheet and validation of publication. This is based on four criteria:

· Accepted as is for publication (with minor editing changes).

· Conditionally accepted for publication (with revisions provided to authors).

· Rejected but encouraged for re-submission with major modifications.

· Rejected as inappropriate or unworthy of publication in this certain conference.

The criteria for accepting abstracts for the conference are as follows; a relevant topic of the conference should be proposed with a clear writing, aims, and objectives of the study clearly presented as well as a sound literature and methodology of work.

First Acceptance:

Authors will receive a notification message to know the feedback of the reviewers committee. If an author receives the acceptance of his or her abstract, he or she has to continue writing the full-length paper using the requested templates.

Uploading Full-Length Paper:

Authors who are allowed to upload their full-length paper(s) should use the same account details to upload their full paper(s).

Second Acceptance:

The final paper will proceed to the primary revision to be checked if it meets the conference proceedings standards. Once it gets accepted, the author will be informed to pay the fees so that it could be sent for the final revision by the scientific committee.

Payment:

In this step, and to proceed paper(s) that passed to final revision process and to get the final approval, authors have to pay the requested fees. Otherwise, the final revision process will not be considered for their papers.

Inspections and Final Approval of Full Papers:

The full papers that paid the requested fees will get finally inspected, either scientifically or linguistically. There will be a rigorous review process of full papers following the previous process according to the following criteria:

(1) Is the topic relevant to the conference?

(2) Is the writing and structure clear?

(3) Are graphics, photos, illustrations used where needed?

(4) Are the aims of the study clearly stated?

(5) Are the objectives of the study achieved?

(6) Is the literature review relevant and adequate?

(7) Has the author used appropriate methodology and explained them clearly?

(8) Has the author interpreted the findings correctly?

(9) Is the paper a significant contribution to the field?

These are the registration and revision procedures for publication that all authors should follow.

Conference Location

Overview

The luxurious landmark Grand Nile Tower is poised directly on the magnificent Nile on the tip of Roda Island with a prime location in central Cairo, close to many cultural and tourists attractions. It is located in the Garden City area close to the centre of modern Cairo. The Cairo International Airport is approx. 20 km away from the hotel.


City Information
The largest city in Africa, Cairo is a vast, exotic city that stretches along the banks of Nile River in Egypt. The majority of the city lies to the east of the Nile although most visitors come to Cairo to visit the only surviving ancient wonder of the world, the magnificent pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx which are about 11 miles south-west of the centre of Cairo. The three colossal pyramids can be explored by means of tunnels that go deep inside the interior of the pyramids and by night there is an atmospheric Sound and Light Show, which is well worth seeing.

However, there is much more for visitors to Cairo to experience than the pyramids. The Egyptian Museum, located in central Cairo in Tahir Square, contains over 100,000 relics including the celebrated treasures of the Tutankhamun tomb. Discovered by Howard Carter in 1921, the collection includes the solid gold death-mask, the three golden catafalques, jewellery, scarabs, diadems, weapons, ceremonial gilded couches and chariots, all of which were buried with the 18th-dynasty boy king.

The Cairo Tower, on El Gezirah Island, provides a panoramic view of Cairo from the restaurant, located at the top of the tower. With literally dozens of mosques and Coptic churches to discover, the Ibn Tulun Mosque is one of the largest mosques in the world and is a fine example of classical Islamic architecture.

Old Cairo lies to the south of Cairo city centre and the Citadel, the Coptic Museum and the Hanging Church are all in this region and should not be missed.

Cairo offers a vast range of shopping opportunities, from modern shopping centres to the famous souks. The old bazaar, Khan El Khalili, is arguably, one of the most interesting places to shop and haggle over spices, perfume, gold and silver jewellery, leather work and brass and copper ware.
