PREFACE TO SECOND EDITION--We are very happy to have a second printing of the Proceedings of the First International Symposium on Low-Cost Housing Problems Related to Urban Renewal and Development. The rather quick and large demand of this publication proved to us, once more, the importance and timeliness of the concern on the topic of housing technology and production. The contributions from eighteen nations painted a real picture of housing conditions and needs around the world.

The fifty-one technical papers included in this volume have been selected intentionally in various aspects of housing to draw a complete and meaningful picture of the topic. This is imperative since a successful housing project cannot be isolated from the social and economic environment. All pertinent factors related to housing should be defined and considered in the planning process. An INTEGRATED SYSTEMS APPROACH is the only means to secure success in any housing project. This will be the theme of the Second International Symposium to be held on April 24-25, 1972. The encouragement and positive comments which were conveyed to me after the conference are the foundations of this second Symposium.

The faculty of the Civil Engineering Department and the members of the Extension Division should be cited for their contributions and cooperation for the success of this first Symposium.
