2017 International Conference on Water Conservancy, Hydropower and Building Science (WCHBS 2017) will be held in March 9-10, 2017 in Singapore. WCHBS 2017 is the primary conference for the advancement of water conservancy, hydropower and building in the interest of both science and technology. It addresses all important active fields of investigation: hydraulics, engineering hydrology, port and waterway,  cvil engineering,  bilding materials,  poject management and other related topics.

   Water resources and hydropower engineering is one of the most important basic infrastructure and industry of China. Based on mechanics and hydrology, this discipline studies the fundamental theory and management methods of water resources and hydropower engineering construction, the elimination of flood, and the scientific utilization of water resource and water power resources. With the critical shortage of water resource and increasingly serious energy crisis of our county even the whole world, it is urgent to accelerate river regulation, give priority to develop hydropower, exploit and use water energy—clean renewable energy, and optimally allocate water resources, which makes this discipline have vast potential for future development. Architecture is an interdiscipline of engineering technology and humanity and art. Since the social and economic development, it develops a closer relation between architecture and other related disciplines which leads to rapid changes of building technology. The application of industrialized system of architecture speeds up the development of a large quantity of buildings. The social development, dense population, acceleration of urbanization, and changes of industrial structure, make the urban planning and environmental problem stand out, which becomes a common subject for contemporary architects, planners and landscape designers in correlative fields. Precisely because of the importance of these disciplines in modern sciences, we decide to sponsor this conference.

   The latest research fields of water conservancy, hydropower and building science will be focused in the meeting. WCHBS 2017 provides an international platform for experts, professors, scholars and engineers from different universities, scientific institutes and enterprise and public institutions at home and abroad, to share professional experiences, enlarge the scope of major, communicate face-to-face and demonstrate their research results. WCHBS 2017 discusses the critical challenging problems and research direction of the professional development in order to promote the development and application of theory and technology in universities and enterprises, which also provides opportunities for the delegates to establish business or research relations and to find global partners for future collaboration.

   The organisers of WCHBS 2017 invite all scientists and engineers interested in one of the topics of the conference to present their insights and achievements. The organisers are encouraging young scientists and engineers to participate through a reduced conference fee.

    Note that WCHBS 2017 ONLY accepts unpublished research papers. Submitted conference papers will be reviewed by the committees of the conference. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by cooperative press and be online available in full text via the publication platform, and then be submitted for indexing to Thomson ISI (ISTP, CPCI, Web of Science), EI Compendex and CNKI.
