fib SYMPOSIUM 2019
The fib (Fédération Internationale du Béton/International Federation for Structural Concrete) is a non-profit association committed to advancing the technical, economic, aesthetic and environmental performance of concrete structures worldwide. Its efforts are brought to the international stage by its wide range of members: national groups, corporate and individual members, as well as supporting organizations and institutions. The Polish National Member Group of the fib was established in 1998 under the auspices of the Committee on Civil Engineering and Hydroengineering of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

The fib is the world's leading organization in the area of expansion of knowledge and standardization in the use of concrete in structures. Annual fib symposia are recognized for the development and promotion of innovations in concrete design and construction. These international meetings are a regular forum where engineers and researchers working in the domain of concrete structures meet and present. It is an occasion to learn as well as discuss problems related to the use of this material.

While concrete is commonly known as a conventional material, it is also a subject of a continuous development. Symposium organizers welcome the opportunity to host many authors and participants interested in this topic and presentations about their achievements in the development of concrete technology, analysis and design as well as protection of the durability of concrete structures. In accordance with the fib's policy, the Symposium will be open to researchers, designers, civil engineers and other specialists as well as students interested in all subjects related to concrete structures.

Since the venue of the Symposium is Kraków, one can keep in mind this famous quote of Matthaus Merian:

"Cracovia totius Poloniae urbs celeberrima atque amplissima regia atque Academia insignis"

The Organizers are available for any questions, comments or inquiries regarding the Symposium and Kraków. It is an honor to invite all members of the "concrete society" to Kraków to attend the fib 2019 Symposium! Zapraszamy!
