The Asian Civil Engineering Coordinating Council (ACECC)

The purpose of ACECC is to schedule Asian forums where worldwide members of the civil engineering profession may jointly develop programs of coordination and mutual action in designated matters affecting the interests of civil engineers and related professionals. The triennial Civil Engineering Conference in the Asian Region (CECAR) is one of ACECC’s major forums. This conference offers an interesting opportunity to discover innovative technologies and researches achieved in and outside the Asia region. Although the Council mainly consists of the civil engineering societies/institutions in that region, its membership is open to professional organizations worldwide.
