Preliminary Invitation and Call for Abstracts
Annual Meetings: September 2-3, 2019
Congress: September 4-6, 2019
The Javits Centre is a 760,000 square feet of meeting space with bespoke services and top-of-the-line amenities, all under one giant 7-acre green roof! It is the crown jewel of the pulsating, resurgent new West Side neighbourhood - now transformed with the Hudson River Park, Hudson Yards and the recently expanded section of the High Line.
The Congress will be hosted by the US Group of IABSE, as well as several prominent US Structural Engineering organisation co-hosts. The Organisers invite the world’s structural engineering community to share their experiences with their colleagues and friends and have unique open discussions and forums on what the future holds for engineering tomorrow’s structures.
