Introduction

The 8th Conference on "Conservation of Architectural Heritage"(CAH), follows the success of previous conferences to discuss the art and science of designing and building large structures that contains the identity and the heritage of the city.

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. The 5th Edition "Conservation of Architectural Heritage"(CAH) follows the success of the previous editions. Architecture is the art and science of designing and building large structures. It contains the identity and the heritage of the city. Due to the importance of preserving the identity, conservation is the process of, restoring, preserving and managing the heritage, cultural, and historical site in a manner that sustains it and enhances its integration with the surrounding development.

The CAH anticipated aim is to preserve and pass down the past for the future generations through increasing the awareness and the value of the conservation of our past and not just facing the posed challenges temporarily. The conservation and the protection of the heritage is not just the physical act of preserving and restoring our heritage, but also passing on the importance of heritage to the individuals, communities, and the cities of the world.

This conference will discuss many disciplines, such as; cultural and physical heritage, historical monuments, architecture of the past, conservation, reuse of historical buildings, and heritage management. The conference gathers many experts in the field to be able to work together on the many existing layers of conserving the architecture and the heritage of the city. Their participation and knowledge exchange will help provide more approachable solutions and ideas about the conservation and the techniques for preservation.

The conference sessions, talks, and activities will take place on board of a Nile cruiser which will sail from Luxor to Aswan. During the trip, site visits to the temples and monuments of Ancient Egypt will be arranged in order for the Audience to have a more vivid experience of the conference and what it stands for.

Selected papers of the conference will be published in a book series under the title of Advances in Science, Technology, & Innovation (ASTI) by Springer. Others will be published in the Resourceedings journal by IEREK Press.
