The Vancouver and Victoria Sections and Western Region of the CSCE are proud to host the 2017 CSCE Annual Conference.
Vancouver, located between English Bay and the Fraser River, is the hub of the lower mainland of British Columbia, Canada. The metropolitan area offers a vibrant cultural and entertainment scene in a beautiful natural setting, including world famous Stanley Park which is a short walk from the conference hotel, the Bayshore Westin Hotel. All this and now the CSCE annual conference and AGM… more than enough reasons to come to Vancouver in the spring of 2017.
In its ongoing commitment to the nation’s infrastructure the CSCE has selected
“Leadership in Sustainable Infrastructure” as the theme of this year’s conference.
Although papers on all civil engineering related topics are welcome, to demonstrate the CSCE’s continued commitment to sustainable infrastructure the CSCE will be giving priority to papers and case studies that support tlhe Conference Theme.
The 2017 CSCE Annual Conference will, in addition to the General Conference, include the following Specialty Conferences:
- 6th International Conference on Engineering Mechanics and Materials – Shahria Alam, Chair
- 15th International Conference on Environmental Engineering – Catherine Mulligan, Chair
- 23rd Canadian Hydrotechnical Conference – Brian Hughes, Chair
- 6th CSCE/CRC International Construction Specialty Conference – Farnaz Sadeghpour and Thomas Froese, Co-Chairs
This year’s conference will include the inaugural First Nations Speaker series to bring together First Nations Community leaders, industry professionals and civil engineers.
The First Nations Infrastructure Speaker Series will provide presentations on engaging in meaningful consultation and the infrastructure needs of First Nations Communities. First Nations community leaders, industry experts and government officials will be invited to present material and lead discussions on the social and environmental challenges technical professionals must understand to be effective in the improvement of First Nation infrastructure in Canada.
