Coordinated Renewal of Civil Infrastructure Systems for Sustainable Human Environments

New York Academy of Sciences - New York, NY, USA
Apr 21, 1999—Apr 22, 1999

The sustainability of community development connotes human activities that are in balance with the Earthís resources and do not exceed its capacity. Infrastructure is a major component of community development and as such the extent to which infrastructure promotes sustainability is
a critical issue. ICIS selected the coordinated renewal of infrastructure in light of sustainability as a major thrust or organizing principle for its programs.

This conference was ICISí key event to explore the relationship between the coordinated renewal of infrastructure and sustainability with participants from a wide variety of disciplines. In addition, to identifying some of these relationships, the major outcome of the conference was to
derive directions or an agenda for ICIS in light of the concept of sustainability.
