Rehabilitation and maintenance in civil engineering is not less important than planning and designing. The excessive load, natural hazard, lack of construction procedures and material degradation are causes of building defects. Rehabilitation and maintenance help to extend the building and infrastructure service life.

Rehabilitation is defined as the whole efforts to regain building and infrastructures functions against defect or structure weakening. This covers many aspects such as repairing, strengthening, revitalization, renovation and restoration. While maintenance is the effort to keep the building and infrastructure service as planned.

The objective of ICRMCE is to provide a forum for researchers, academicians (lecturers and students), government agencies, consultants and contractors to exchange experiences, technological advancement and innovation related to rehabilitation and maintenance in civil engineering.

The conference will be held in one day and feature presentations by keynote speakers of leading international experts as well as authors of all accepted papers. The language of communication will be English. There is also a conference exhibition that explores the materials, experiences and advanced technology related to the rehabilitation and maintenance in civil engineering. To build the networking opportunities, the participants are invited to the conference welcome dinner. In the following day of the conference, the participants are offered to join the excursion to Borobudur and Prambanan temples. Both are Indonesian heritage building with beautiful scenery and were built at around 6th century.
