In line with our main goal to render assistance to the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the war torn Afghanistan, SAE endeavors to find and weigh options that are technically sound and physically practical for reconstruction efforts.

One of the most effective ways to collect such information is to gather scholars and experts keenly interested in the welfare of the devastated country to present their ideas and offer options that would be useful in reconstruction efforts. These symposiums grow larger every year, and lay the groundwork for much of what SAE will achieve in the future.

SAE’s Conference 2006 will take place in Kabul, Afghanistan during the month of August – September 2006. We encourage all Speakers and Guests to participate in this International gathering of Scholars and contribute to the success of this conference and in the reconstruction process of Afghanistan.

SAE’s Conference 2005 was conducted during the month of December 2005 in the Auditorium of Kabul University.
