August 26-27,  IABSE-JSCE Conference on Advances in Bridge Engineering-IV
Dhaka, Bangladesh.
 

 

On 26-27 August 2020, the Bangladesh Group of the IABSE, in collaboration with the Japan Society of Civil Engineers, organized the International Conference on Advances in Bridge Engineering-IV: Definitive Outcomes for the People.

 

The conference took place online and had the active support of six co-organizers, five associate organizers and three supporters. The conference also co-hosted an international symposium with the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh, titled Quality Assurance in Engineering Education through Accreditation-II, which ran online in parallel. Although the COVID-19 pandemic forced the organizers to switch the venue from Dhaka’s InterContinental Hotel to an online platform, the event’s dates were saved. A very encouraging post-event survey indicated satisfaction among the participants in positively adapting to the new normal and promoting knowledge transfer through interactive online discussions. Respondents also showed interest in participating in future online events.

 

In total, 707 participants from 23 countries participated in various sessions during the two-day event. Seven keynote papers and 65 technical papers by 223 authors in bridge engineering discipline from 13 countries comprised 72 live presentations given over the Internet. These presenters also responded to moderated audience questions in real time. The education symposium within the conference included nine live plenary talks, two live discussion sessions and a live workshop organized jointly by Malaysia and Bangladesh on complex engineering problems and complex engineering activities. The opening ceremony was addressed by nine guests from academia and industry, and the closing ceremony was addressed by 10 guests. Prof. Dr. AFM Saiful Amin, Chair, Bangladesh Group of the IABSE, chaired both sessions. Details can be found at http://iabse-bd.org/2020/ and http://www.baetebangladesh.org/symposium2/
