 Introduction

200x250 IHA16
The Conference aims to highlight the importance of Islamic Heritage Architecture and Art to the world and its influence across different regions.
The Meeting will deal with the design of many types of buildings in Islamic countries, including not only the better known public buildings such as mosques, mausolea, citadels and forts, but also houses and gardens, engineering works such as bridges and dams, irrigation systems and many others which have also had a profound impact on society. Islamic Architecture has enriched design with a wide variety of structural shapes, including among others, unique arches, a wide variety of vaults and domes which allow for new forms to be developed. The influence that these structural forms have in non-Islamic countries will be one of the themes of the Conference.
There is much to learn from past experiences to arrive at solutions which are environmentally sound and sustainable in the long term. As conventional energy resources become scarce, the Islamic design heritage can offer invaluable lessons on how to deal in an efficient manner with cases of hard and extreme environments. Traditional architecture and urban environment in most Islamic countries is now being eroded by overemphasis on global type of architecture and city planning. As a consequence, many regions are losing their identity. The Conference will aim to review these developments in the light of what the classical Islamic urban designs and architectures have to offer modern society. An equally important part of the Meeting will analyse the materials employed and the types of structural elements, particularly those unique to Islamic architecture. Associated topics of discussion will include music, textiles and ceramics, which are essential parts of the architectural fabric.
The Conference will encompass papers on construction materials, including not only stone and brick but also more perishable materials such as adobe, wood and reeds. Preserving that Heritage also requires the development of appropriate conservation techniques in response to the different materials used and the ways structural forms work, including under extreme conditions, such as earthquakes. Papers relevant to the influence of Islamic architecture on the development of new structural form, shape and design in the Western countries are particularly welcome. The Meeting will be of interest to all researchers, practitioners and government employees actively involved in the topic of Islamic Heritage Architecture and Art.
Presenters at Islamic Heritage Architecture 2016 will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper for possible publication in theInternational Journal of Sustainable Development and Planning, one of the Journals published by the Wessex Institute.

Introduction
There is a wealth of architectural heritage worldwide, from historic city centers and cultural landscapes to some of the largest archaeological sites in the world. Conserving such inheritance is a challenging task that requires sustained commitment, interdisciplinary effort, and international cooperation.
IEREK seeks to address the complex challenge of conserving architectural heritage through this conference to increase the awareness of how citizens should value and save our heritage more effectively.
This conference is planned to be held on board; a Nile cruise between Luxor and Aswan, Egypt. Overlooking the Nile River, these two cities include a considerable percentage of the world's monuments, thereby offering a historic context to the conference.
This conference helps university researchers, professionals, and policy makers to get together to discuss the most pressing issues concerning the conservation of archaeological, architectural, and urban landscapes. More specifically, the main goal of the conference is to discuss multi-disciplinary research on complex Cultural Heritage sites, ranging from archaeological ruins to historical architecture and centers.
Scientific research will foster the attempt to improve the know-how in the field. Expected results include a better understanding of the problems facing architectural heritage, the development of policies favoring its conservation, the definition of practical guidelines and the organization of training and awareness activities.

Publication
The conference proceedings will be published by ELSEVIER at the Procedia journal "Social and Behavioral Sciences". ELSEVIER shall include the journal as a part of (Sciencedirect.com) services and shall be openly accessed. The Participants are granted internationally recognized certificates from Universita Kore Enna and IEREK which will be added to their certificates of experience or could be presented to the official authorities concerned.
