An Online Conference of Cities’ Identity Through Architecture and Arts – 3rd Edition


Please be informed that the Cities’ Identity Through Architecture and Arts – 3rd Edition conference will be held on the 11th through the 13th of September, instead of being held in May, as the attendees of both the Middle and Far East have requested the change since the day that was announced coincides with the month of Ramadan.

It is easy to identify a city’s identity by looking at its architecture. Architecture is the platform where all cultural, historical and economic monuments meet. With each city’s unique identity, the impact is left and history made. Similarly, traditions represent a critical piece of our culture and identity.

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.

The identity of cities has become a serious issue for many countries at present so that the role of organizations and governments has become to maintain and fix architectural buildings to save their heritage. For this reason, IEREK has organized the international conference on “Cities’ Identity Through Architecture and Arts”.

This conference will talk about how historical cities are to change in the future and how architecture and arts are to be preserved. It will also discuss the city’s self-identity, how this identity could be affected over the upcoming years as well as how the architecture of a city and contemporary arts could affect the identity of a city.

This conference will also increase awareness of the importance of conserving architectural monuments and arts.

IEREK, through this conference, aims to gather research and exchange knowledge from different perspectives and views on the different ways through which architecture and contemporary arts are developed.

Also, IEREK seeks to emphasize the basis of urban development and identities as well as investigating the diverse approaches taken in both fields; architecture and contemporary art.

Following the success of the first and second international conferences on “Cities’ Identity Through Architecture and Arts“, the third edition of the conference will be held from the 11th to the 13th of Sep,  2019. Benefit from an opportunity to benefit from and exchange knowledge with experts in this field.

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