Genesis of CECAR9

CECAR (Civil Engineering Conference in the Asian region) is the Triennial International Conference of ACECC. It is one of its major activities and so far 8 CECARs have been organized in the various Asian countries with participation from across the globe.

The ACECC 34th Executive Committee Meeting held on April 12-14, 2018, at Hanoi in Vietnam decided that the upcoming CECAR9 would be hosted in India by The Institution of Civil Engineers (India) [ICE(I)] in 2022.

Thus, India got the privilege to host CECAR9 for the first time, an extraordinary professional opportunity offered at an exciting location, Goa - Amazing from every Angle. What can be more mesmerizing than this?
