International Conference (ICFEI, 2018)



 

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (DCEE) of North South University, Dhaka is going to organize the 1st International Conference on Frontiers in Energy & Infrastructure (ICFEI 2018) on 18-19 December 2018. The aim of this conference is to advance the energy and infrastructure research for sustainable development highlighting innovation. With this background, we are partnering with academics from Lehigh University, Pennsylvania, USA, Royal University of Bhutan, Bhutan and experts from the USA, Australia, Japan, India, New Zealand, and Bangladesh to organize the conference.We would like to invite the dialogue between advanced engineering economies and budding economic tigers to operate in the new nexus of growth in a sustainable manner.

     Notice      

We regret to inform you that we have had to postponeThe First International Conference on Frontiers in Energy & Infrastructure. Please check the Notice Board for details.

Organized By:

I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think.”
― Socrates

 

Our desire is to extend a gracious and inclusive welcome to all of you. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at North South University is a fledgling but vibrant department where the aim is to foster then pursuit of knowledge and conduct transformational research that will help our citizens. An intrigril part of this endeavor is to share acquired knowledge through research and foster innovation. What better way to do this than to hold an international conference to conquer the challenging issues of energy and infrastructure faced in our region. Hence the title of our conference is “Frontiers in Energy and Infrastructure”. The conference theme being: Built Environment and Building Physics, Materials and Energy, and Sustainable Development. So come heither and come all; help us make this conference a success.

The conference is organized by

1. Professor Tshewang Lhendup, PhD Dean Collage of Science and Technology,The Royal University of Bhutan.

Although Dr.Lhendup is a trained electrical engineer he has focused in research expertise and his professional endeavors to building physics and in particular how to make buildings in South Asia more energy efficient and yet maintain the unique aesthetics of the region. He is a pioneer in the field and is leaned upon regionally for his expertise. It is of note that Bhutan where Dr. Lhendup resides is the only carbon neutral country in the world and no doubt Dr. Lhenup’s work goes a long way to sustain this unique achievement.

2. Professor. Arup K. Sengupta, Ph.D., P.E./Assistant Professor Mike German, Ph.D., P.E. Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Lehigh University, United States of America.

Although they are world renounced in their expertise is in nano-technology and application of state of the art membrane technology in water treatment and wastewater treatment they belong tto the Tagore Sengupta Foundation that is dedicated to community based projects in water, sanitation, and education in communities. Their work both in West Bengal India, and Bangladesh in arsenic mitigation and water sanitation is commendable. Not only are they top notch engineers they are philanthropists as well.

Dr. Sinaha has over seventeen years of experience in the field of water desalination and water reuse. He is a practicing process engineer with degrees in both Chemical and Environmental Engineering. His current research focus is on drinking water, water treatment plant optimization, water quality research, pilot-scale studies, seawater and brackish water desalination and industrial water treatment.

5. Kana Matsui. MS, P.E. (California), Earth System Science Co. Limited , Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, Japan.

Expert in water resources related projects and capacity development in the developing world, working directly with Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), other international agencies, and counterpart organizations/agencies in the respective countries. land/mudslide prevention (disaster management) related work, implemented and managed in a manner unique to Japan. Projects/work include: Water supply services capacity development with Department of Public Health and Engineering, Bangladesh

6. Dr. Tom Murphy, Ph.D. ScD. Senior Scientist Environment Canada (Retired).

His environmental science experience dates back to 1972. Project experience covers field and laboratory investigations in 20 countries including Canada the U.S. and others in Asia, Middle East and Europe. Accomplishments include management of successful remediation projects for eutrophic lakes, contaminated sediments and soils, preparation of EIA documents, writing of remedial action plans, natural resource damage assessments from initial response and litigation phases conducted both in Canada and abroad, expert witness in environmental damage claims involving steel industry and oil and gas in Canada and Middle East, and assessment and implementation of health and safety. Has published 225 papers (116 external review), and three books.
