The International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering is very pleased to invite you to participate in the IABSE Symposium 2020 in Wrocław, Poland, on October 7-9, 2020. This IABSE Symposium is organised by the Polish Group of IABSE and Wrocław University of Science and Technology.
Under the theme “Synergy of Culture and Civil Engineering – History and Challenges” I look forward to discuss, the development of bridge and structural engineering as part of worldwide culture, and on current challenges in this area. The Scientific Committee chaired by Prof. Jan Bień, Chair of the Polish Group of IABSE, and the Organising Committee, co-chaired by Profs. Jan Biliszczuk and Paweł Hawryszków, have prepared a very attractive virtual Event with renowned Keynote Speakers, Plenary and Parallel Sessions.


I also compliment the Organisers for changing this well-prepared symposium swiftly from a classical conference to a fully online conference due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation.


A special invitation goes out to our younger colleagues the builders of the future to join us. Those born in or after 1986, should take advantage of the “IABSE Young Engineers Programme”, including reduced registration fees and special prizes sponsored by the IABSE Fellows and the Organising Committee.
I am looking forward to meet our members and to welcoming new friends to the IABSE community online.
