On behalf of the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE) we have great pleasure to invite you to Wrocław, Poland, for the IABSE Symposium “Synergy of Culture and Civil Engineering – History and Challenges” on May 20-22, 2020. The IABSE Symposium is organised by the Polish Group of IABSE and Wrocław University of Science and Technology (WUST). The Symposium will take place at the Congress Center of Wrocław University of Science and Technology.

The main goal of the Symposium is the creation of a forum for the debate on the development of bridge and structural engineering as part of worldwide culture, and on current challenges in this area. The Symposium shall be focusing on significant issues, such as Civil Engineering Structures as Monuments of Culture and Technical Development; Condition Assessment of Contemporary and Historical Structures; Conservation, Upgrading and Management of Contemporary and Historical Structures as well as the Future of Civil Engineering Structures.

We hope that this IABSE Symposium will be an important international meeting of scientists, experts, designers, contractors and all those who are interested in problems of bridges and other civil engineering structures.

Technical visits to interesting projects and to research facilities, guided by local engineers, are planned during the Symposium, and are open for accompanying persons. More detailed information will be available in the Final Invitation and at the Symposium website.
