Civil Engineering is very often blamed as one of the greatest responsible for environmental degradation.
At the same time, Civil Engineering should promote the development of the society, by improving dignity
and comfort of the people. Can development be implemented taking care of the environment

This is the motto for the conference: how can Civil Engineering be environmentally friendly while still
doing its job ? what is it doing nowadays for achieving that goal?

                                     The City of Coimbra in Portugal
Rich in tradition, the old University town of Coimbra, principal town of its own district and the see of a
bishop, lies halfway between Lisbon and Oporto in the hilly country of Beira Litoral. It is built on the right
bank of the Rio Mondego, here skirting the chalk hills of the Serra de Lorvao.
The 18,000 or so Coimbra University students are very much a feature of life in the town. Bareheaded,
they wear a long black robe (batina) under a black cape (capa), with facings of different colors for the
various faculties. On the occasion of the Queima das Fitas, the examination celebrations held in the
middle of May, these facings are ceremonially burned as part of a giant spectacle.

With its fine old buildings, many of them dating from the time of Manuel I, and many other art treasures,
Coimbra is an ideal location for the Conference.
