Nowadays, all countries seem to be seeking one pressing issue and that is heritage maintenance, especially in Architecture and Urban design. Organizations and Universities play a vital role in saving or rather conserving old cities through Conferences. Therefore, a conference on “Identity Through Architecture & Arts” will be held in 2018.
In this conference, examples and tendencies dealing with urban identities as well as the transformation of cities that shape the current art scene in different places of the world will be discussed. This type of architectural art continuously renews itself -from new materials to different means of communication, from new approaches to perceptional paradigms and nature in the millennium, from new subjects to manifestations. Contemporary art continues to be produced in various directions, consumed and put forward into ideas.
This conference will present how citizens see their cities and how they physically or mentally compare it with the ideal city in their own perceptions.
However, a city’s identity presents distinguishing factors that make it unique and unlike any other.
IEREK aims to dedicate the investigation of the different and new approaches developed in Architecture and Contemporary arts.
IEREK aims to focus on the basis of urban life and identities as well as investigate the different approaches developed in Architecture and Contemporary arts.

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

· Accepted 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 clear writing, aims, and objectives of the study clearly presented, as well as a sound literature and methodology of the work.
