Over the last decade, the Kingdom of the Morocco has experienced an exceptional development in most areas. During its formulation in 2005, the country's proactive strategy, dubbed "Plan Emergence" (Emergency Plan), it had as ambition to revitalize the Moroccan economy based on two pillars. The first corresponds to the redesign and consolidation of the existing industrial fabric; the second proposes at the same time to focus on other strategic sectors (aerospace, telecommunication, industrial valorization of local products, agriculture, seafood products, etc.)
Currently in 2017, we believe that the emerging plan could not succeed without improvement and restructuring of the national infrastructure. We are talking of course of the building sector, the road sector, and related areas such as the sector of hydraulics and environment, etc.
On the other hand, the energy sector and environmental constraints constitute more strategic objectives on a global scale. Indeed, currently, the regression of the developments brought about by modern physics, in the context of scientific and technical research, enabled betting on the eco-design of buildings and on a rational exploitation of nature's resources.
It is in this context that the private University of Fez (Université Privée de Fès) and the Moulay Ismail University (Université Moulay Ismaïl), organize the first Congress on "The buildings and sustainable cities", to discuss news as well as national and international progress in the field.
The Congress on «The buildings and sustainable cities» will be a place of exchange between different academic and professional stakeholders. We will be interested on scientific and technical aspects, related to novelties in the field, but also to the regulatory aspects necessary for the implementation and the application of good practices on an industrial scale.
