3rd International Conference On "Sustainable Innovative Techniques In Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering" (SITACEE - 2014)
Organized by "Krishi Sanskriti" 
On 26th and 27th April, 2014
Venue: Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi

The Organizer cordially invites abstracts and full length research papers from all over the World to participate in the 3rd International Conference on "Sustainable Innovative Techniques in Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering" (SITACEE - 2014). Topics of interest for submission include various subthemes, but are not limited to the conference aims. The aim of the SITACEE-2014 conference is to provide a forum for laying the foundations of a new principled approach to Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering. To this end, the meeting aims to attract participants with different backgrounds, to foster cross-pollination between different research fields, and to expose and discuss innovative theories, frameworks, methodologies, tools, and applications for sustainable development. All contribution should be of high quality, Original and not published elsewhere or submitted for publication. During the review period, Papers will be reviewed by eminent scholars in the respective areas. All Selected papers will be published as chapters in edited book and few high-end papers will be published in international Journal having ISSN No. which will be issued to authors after publication.
