Welcome to ICRICE 2020

It’s an immense pleasure and great honor for me welcoming you all to the 2ndInternational Conference on Research & Innovation in Civil Engineering (ICRICE 2020) to be held on 10-11January, 2020 in Chittagong. The city dubbed as the commercial capital of the country is the business gateway to Bangladesh. It hosts the countries’ largest and the main sea port. The conference is organized by the Department of Civil Engineering, Southern University Bangladesh; a pioneer and a trend setter in enhancingquality in tertiary level engineering education in the country.

Chittagong is the main sea port of Bangladesh handling almost ninety percent of its exports and imports. The port city is bestowed with pristine natural beauty. Mighty river Karnafuli embraces the city like a garland from the east. The city, predominantly hilly in the north, faces the Bay of Bengal in the south. Unlike many other cities around the world, it’s a unique city with river, sea, hills and lake; all in one place.  This uniqueness has made Chittagong the prettiest city in Bangladesh. The city accommodates around five million people and displays great variety and diversity in culture and heritage. Roman geographer Ptolemy in the 1st century had identified it as one of the largest ports in the east. It has a glorious history dating back to 4th century BC.

Chittagong is only 265 kmaway from Dhaka, the capital of the Bangladesh. It has an excellent International Airport providing easy access to Dhaka and other major cities of the world. Cox’s Bazar, the largest continuous sandy beach in the world, is only 127 km south of Chittagong with excellent road and air linkage. It attracts millions of tourist every year.

The objective of this conference is to bring under one roof the leading academicians, practicing engineers, researchers, scholars and policy makers in different fields of civil engineering around the world.They will explore and exchange new ideas, share knowledge and expertise and reinforce networking in the arena of scientific collaboration and cooperation. We are planning to knit together this knowledge sharing and expertise at regular intervals every two years.       

As the pivotal person of ICRICE 2020, it gives me great pleasure in inviting you all to participate in this conference of exchanging views, learning, sharing and fellowship. Look forward to welcoming you warmly at the premises of Southern University Bangladesh, Chittagong in January 2020.
