From March 10 13, Professor Oral Buyukozturk delivered the plenary lecture at the 2019 Gulf Conference in Kuwait entitled "Roadmap for Sustainable Built Environment: a science-based multidisciplinary research." The conference was the result of the successful completion of the first MIT Kuwait multidisciplinary signature project in which Buyukozturk was the Principal Investigator involving a total of 61 researchers, 24 from MIT and 37 from Kuwait. Buyukozturk led a group of 3 faculty members and 5 postdocs and students who presented 8 technical papers in the conference. The group held 3 international workshops on sustainable materials, energy, and infrastructure sensing and monitoring. The conference also featured MIT Associate Provost Professor Richard K. Lester, who presented the opening plenary talk.
