5th Asian-Pacific Group Symposium, on December 9-13, 2019, in Tehran, Iran
Invitation from the Vice President of ICOLD, President of IRCOLD and Chairman of APG 2019
As the President of Iranian Committee on Large Dams (IRCOLD) who is the host organization, I am so delighted to welcome all participants of the 5th Asia-Pacific International Symposium on Water and Dams (APG 2019) on December 10-11, 2019, to Tehran, IRAN. This is an excellent opportunity for IRAN to host this international scientific event and we are happy to have distinguished scientists, engineers and other professionals involved in the dam and water industries here in Tehran. Hope the Symposium and your visit to Tehran would be beyond your expectations and a most pleasant one.
Symposium will start with pre-study tours and then technical sessions and will be followed by workshops and post-study tours. The workshops will provide an international forum for the academics from universities and institutes, principal investigators from industries, and practicing engineers from private and public firms to present and discuss their up-to-date reviews of recent accomplishments and the future trends in the field of dam and water engineering. The symposium not only serves as an excellent arena for sharing and exchanging the latest developments and experiences related to design, performance, rehabilitation and environmental aspects of dams, but also acts as a catalyst to bring delegates from many different parts of the world to stimulate interest, encourage cooperation, results in new friendships and renew existing ones.
Away from the technical program of the symposium, we hope you will enjoy the social occasions and cultural events in Tehran: Opening Ceremony, Welcome Reception, City Tours, Banquet.
I believe that APG 2019 will have an impact on the development of dam and water engineering, and will also provide a forum for discussion, sharing knowledge and experiences, innovative ideas, research results and will foster collaborations amongst the participants.
I hope you accept my sincere invitation and contribute in establishing an informative, successful and productive symposium and help us achieve our goals. I am extremely sure that your kind contribution will promote and enhance the level of the symposium.
As I wish you a productive and rewarding meeting, I welcome you once again on behalf of Iranian Committee on Large Dams (IRCOLD). We look forward to seeing you in the friendly and safe city of Tehran for APG 2019 along with your colleagues, family and friends and hope you enjoy the hospitality and culture of beautiful IRAN during your stay. The Organizing Committee promises an exciting and excellent International Symposium.
