Proceedings of the 2016 International Conference on Civil, Structure and Environmental Engineering

The 2016 International conference on Civil, Structure, Environmental Engineering (I3CSEE 2016) has taken place in Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province, China on March 12-13, 2016. We have invited scholars and researchers from all over the world to present the conference.

I3CSEE 2016 attaches importance to presenting and publishing novel and fundamental advances in civil, structure, environmental engineering fields. Scholars and specialists on I3CSEE 2016 will share their knowledge and amazing research. During the conference, an international stage is prepared for the participants to present their study theories. They will also find practical applications for these theories in related fields. 

In order to organize I3CSEE 2016, we have sent our invitation to scholars and researchers from all around the world. Eventually, over 150 submissions were submitted to us. These papers have gone through a strict reviewing process performed by our international reviewers. All the submissions were double-blind reviewed, both the reviewers and the authors remaining anonymous. First, all the submissions were divided into several chapters according to the topics, and the information of the authors, including name, affiliation, email and so on, removed. Then the TPC chairs assigned the submissions to reviewers according to their research interests. Each submission was reviewed by two reviewers. The review results should be sent to chairs on time. If two reviewers had conflicting opinions, the paper would be transmitted to the third reviewer assigned by the chairs. Only papers which were approved by its reviewers were accepted for publication. Finally, 74 papers were accepted for the proceedings.

To prepare I3CSEE 2016, we have received a lot help from a lot of people. 

We thank all the contributors for their interest and support to I3CSEE 2016. We also feel honored to have the support from our international reviewers and committee members. Moreover, the support from the Atlantis Press is also deeply appreciated: without their effort, this book would not have come into being.
