Introduction

It is easy to identify a city’s culture by looking at its architectural planning and arts as architecture is the platform where all cultures, heritages, traditions, and histories meet. That is the role of organizations and governments to maintain and fix architectural buildings to save their heritage.

This conference will talk about how the historical cities will change in the future and how the old architecture and arts will be preserved. It will also talk about the city’s self-identity and how this identity could be affected over the upcoming years. This conference will also increase the awareness of conserving architectural monuments and arts. They can also be an active commercial industry on its own and it has already begun.

Each city’s identity is unique and it performed a role in the society, which have changed this society’s thinking or had made an impact in history. Traditions represent a critical piece of our culture. They help form the structure and foundation of our families and our society. They identify the part of a history that defines our past, shapes who we are today and who we are likely to become. Once we ignore the meaning of our traditions, we’re in danger of damaging the underpinning of our identity.

Following the success of the first and second international conferences on “Cities’ Identity Through Architecture and Arts“, the third version of the conference will take place on the 8th of May, 2019 till the 10th of March, 2019.

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. You learn from experts in the field. It is a great opportunity to find more about your field and listen to ideas that could help inspire research ideas of your own.

Not to mention, getting an overview of the place or city where the conference is being held and learning about its people and culture.

Conferences also can expand your resources by providing a great opportunity to promote gathered information on new technologies related to your research. Moreover, they let you test them out, share teaching tools and techniques, or even obtain samples of textbooks.

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 CD. The CD will additionally contain proceedings from previous conferences in this series.

Indexing and Archiving Papers presented at IEREK conferences regularly appear in notable reviews, publications and databases, including referencing and abstract.

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 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.

  • 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).

  • Payment:

In this step, and to proceed paper(s) that passed to the 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.
