The International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE) Symposium

10 April - 12 April

This IABSE Symposium in Manchester in April presents an important and timely opportunity for engineers, architects, contractors, researchers, clients and others to get together to exchange views and opinions, hear from international industry experts, and engage in debate and discussion to address the enormous challenges we face. Construction professionals may have been partly responsible in the past for laying the foundations of the emergency we now face, but they are also absolutely key to finding the solutions and new technologies that must be adopted now if our children are going to enjoy a better future.

The overall theme of the Symposium is Construction’s Role for a World in Emergency, and there are six sub-themes or topic headings into which the papers will be grouped and presented:

1.    Designing and building for net zero
2.    Regeneration, rehabilitation and adaptation of existing structures
3.    Designing for longevity, resilience and extreme events
4.    Reducing waste – productivity, efficiency and resource economy
5.    Smart Structures – designing responsive, adaptive & progressive solutions
6.    The essential value of competence, professionalism and ethics
