IABSE Symposium to be held in Madrid from 3 to 5 September


37th IABSE Symposium -International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering- will be held in Madrid from 3 to 5 September 2014, at the Technological Institute of CEU San Pablo University, Montepríncipe Campus, at Boadilla del Monte. Throughout its history IABSE has always held its annual symposia in different countries (e.g. Chicago, 2008; Bangkok, 2009; Venice, 2010, London, 2011; Seoul, 2012; Calcutta, 2013).

800 delegates from over 60 countries are expected to attend this year´s Madrid Symposium, primarily intended for engineers, architects, researchers, clients, consultants and all other professionals participating in the study and development of engineering projects.

This year’s Symposium title is ‘Engineering for Progress, Nature and People’, which reflects well one of the main goals of the Structural Engineering Community, strongly influenced by the diversity and richness of nature in Spain, while fostering creativity in balance with resistant technical solutions.

The technical program includes plenary as well as parallel sessions with internationally renowned participants.
