After the successful organization of the first ICEE-PDRP in April 2016, I, on behalf of ICEE-PDRP committee, feel appreciated and highly encouraged to organize the second conference with greater enthusiasm and for better purpose in April 2019.
As always, our objective of arranging such conference is to make experts and academicians from around the world get together at a platform to understand the local and global issues of earthquakes and reconstruction planning with a view at side to preserving the invaluable monuments of Bhaktapur, which have been challenged by Gorkha Earthquake 2015. In fact, Bhaktapur is a blend of northern art and southern mythological philosophy. The pagoda and Shikhar style temples, artistic private houses and other cultural and historical heritages are the major monuments that Bhaktapur inherits from earlier generations. More importantly the challenge of balancing safety against preservation of the architectural and artistic features of historic structures always remains a pressing issue to address.
The organizing committee would highly appreciate your unflinching support.
As the chairman of the committee, I look forward to welcoming you at an ancient city in April 2019.
