Building for the Future

On the behalf of the organizing committee and fib-Turkey, we would like to invite you to the "fib Symposium 2023, Building for the future: Durable, Sustainable, Resilient", which will take place in Istanbul, Turkey on 5-7 June, 2023.

fib international symposium series is among the official symposium of "The International Federation for Structural Concrete (fib)" and the symposium covers the issues related to topics of concrete and innovative materials, structural performance and design, construction methods and management, and outstanding structures.

The symposium will provide an international forum for scientists, engineers, industrial partners and practitioners to present and discuss the state-of-the-practice, recent advances, and future perspectives in terms of durability, sustainability and resiliency in civil engineering.

We look forward to meeting you in Istanbul where the continents meet and welcoming you.
