The theme of the 2018 conference is Peace Engineering. Peace engineering envisions and works towards a world where prosperity, sustainability, social equity, entrepreneurship, transparency, community voice and engagement, and a culture of quality thrive. Engineers have the power to play a vital role in delivering creative solutions that can radically transform and improve human and natural wellbeing. As we educate future engineers, we must ensure that they embrace their role as engineers of peace. We must provide them with the skills, understanding, capacity for reflection, sense of social responsibility and ethics, and resources to successfully navigate the socio-political impacts of their projects, engage in transdisciplinary developments, and frankly, imagine, design, and create a better world for us all.

We hope you accept our invitation to be part of the WEEF-GEDC 2018 event this coming November 2018. We are providing you the opportunity to submit an abstract for consideration in one of the thematic focus areas listed below. We strongly encourage case studies with practical applications and demonstrable results.
