The world is currently struggling against the COVID-19 pandemic and the organizers of ICSID 2020 are very mindful of the safety of our treasured authors and the need to avoid spreading the infection among the public. To that effect, we announce to you that ICSID 2020 will be an all “VIRTUAL CONFERENCE”. No physical attendance will be necessary. Virtual platform will be provided for the presentation of every accepted paper.

The International Conference on Sustainable Infrastructural Development (ICSID 2020) aims to bring together notable scholars, experts, governmental agencies, policy makers, industrialists, professional bodies, and students for the exchange and sharing of experience and ideas on issues pertinent to sustainable infrastructural development. This conference will provide opportunities for participants to interact and present papers (virtually) on Sustainable Water Resources, Geo-Environment, Construction Materials, Housing, Construction Management, Structures, Computational Modelling, Transport System, Social Developmental Issues, etc.
All full papers submitted will undergo double-blind peer review processes and all accepted full papers will be published in the IOP Conference Series: Material Science and Engineering, which is indexed in the SCOPUS database.
