쏷he 2018 World Congress on Advances in Civil, Environmental, and Materials Research (ACEM18) and 쏷he 2018 Structures Congress (Structures18) will be jointly organized by combining twelve International Conferences at Songdo Convensia in Incheon, Korea on August 27 ~ 31, 2018.

혻The Congress aims at providing the first step fusion approach to solve the global problems of infrastructure, new materials, and environmental issues. Each conference of the Congress will be independently organized within ACEM18 in cooperation with other neighboring conferences. Thus the Congress will be a premier international forum that bring together academics and practicing engineers to exchange the frontier research results in the allied technologies under the topics of infrastructure, environmental, and materials research.

The ACEM18/Structures18 Congress consist of the following twelve 2018 International Conferences on:

ACEM18/Structures18 Congress will be held at Songdo Convensia in Incheon, Korea. Opened in 2008, It is a world class convention center representing the Incheon Metropolitan area. Located in the newly-developed Songdo International City of Incheon, Convensia boasts easy accessibility (25km from Incheon International airport, 40km from Central of City Seoul), adequate tourism resources, high quality accommodation and an active support network, meeting all the necessary elements of an excellent convention center. It is also Asia's First LEED-certified 'Green' Convention Center, an environment-friendly building that minimizes the elements that harms the environment and maxmizes the energy efficiency with improved design, construction and operation routines.

How to get to Songdo Convensia

From Incheon Int셪 Airport to Songdo Convensia

1) By Airport Bus
Once you혻arrive at Incheon International Airport, taking KAL Limousine bus (6707-B) is the most convenient way to come to Songdo. It is safe,혻economical and offers almost door-to-door service to the conference venue and many hotels in Songdo (The stop for Songdo Convensia is Sheraton Incheon Hotel). The bus leaves from Incheon Int'l Airport every 25~50 minutes and the journey takes about 25~30 minutes. The bus serves from 5:43 am to 10:10 pm and its fare is KRW7,000(Approx. USD 7).혻

Stops: Incheon Hyatt Hotel, Orakai Songdo Park Hotel, The Central Park Hotel Songdo, Benikea Songdo Bridge Hotel, Oakwood Premier Incheon, Sheraton Incheon Hotel(Songdo Convensia)

2) By Taxi
Since the conference venue is not very far from the airport, taking a taxi is not a bad option.혻It will take about 20 minutes and혻the fare is about KRW 30,000~40,000(Approx. USD 30~40) depending on the traffic condition.
