Congress Proceedings

The Congress proceedings will be available in electronic format (ePDF via link) at the beginning of the Congress. Authors must register to the Congress in order to have their paper presented during the Congress and published in the proceedings.IABSE Conference Reports are abstracted and indexed under Scopus. We are delighted to have received over 150 paper submissions. All those that register for the virtual event will have access to the full proceedings.

 

Themes and Topics

The congress theme is ‘Resilient Technologies for Sustainable Infrastructures’. The Congress will provide the latest in technology and practice to enable structural engineers to design resilient and sustainable structures. The theme is reflected in the technical papers and invited presentations, which will cover the following topics:

  • Earthquake engineering
  • Developments of codes and standards
  • Bridge engineering
  • Multi-storey buildings
  • Durability
  • Rehabilitation and modification of structures
  • Forensic engineering
  • Sustainability
  • Performance-based fire engineering
  • Digital technology and fabrication
  • Innovative forms, technologies and materials
  • Performance under multi-hazards.

 


Technical Programme 

As a result of time zone differences the Technical Programme will run in a compressed format (approximately 4 -6 hours each day), using a flipped-classroom approach. Presentations (except keynotes) will be made available online on January 18, 2021 before the event, so participants can compile questions for the presenters to answer during discussion sessions. The sessions will cover all topics under our congress theme "Resilient Technologies for Sustainable Infrastructures” and are preceded each day by keynote lectures. All presentations will be recorded so you will have the opportunity to view in your own time. We are excited to be working with an Innovative Virtual Platform. 

 

Note: Congress schedule is in Central European Time (CET) Zurich.

CET time zone has been adapted to maximize Live Q&A, Discussions and networking between participants.
