What's new




The fib is deeply honoured and delighted to welcome Indonesia as a new fib member. Indonesia is our 45th national member.

Feeling in harmony with the fib mission to advance the science and technology of concrete structures, some academics in Indonesia joined the fib as individual members. Some of them then felt the need to strengthen the link between Indonesia and the fib. The first meeting of fib-Indonesia was held on 11 July 2017 in Semarang and was attended by fib Commission 7 Chair Petr Hájek. The fib-Indonesia Head of Delegation is Prof Ay Han Lie (UNDIP) and the Deputy is Dr Eng Januarti J. Ekaputri.

The fib supports two events that will take place in Indonesia.

The 4th International Conference on Rehabilitation and Maintenance in Civil Engineering will take place Solo Baru, from 11 to 12 July 2018. Hugo Corres Peiretti (fib President), Harald S. Müller (Immediate Past President of the fib) Petr Hájek (fib Commission 7 Chair) and David Fernández-Ordóñez (fib Secretary General) will attend as speakers.

The 4th SCESCM – International Conference on Sustainable Civil Engineering Structures and Construction Materials – "Sustainable Structures for Future Generation" will take place from 5 to 7 September 2018 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Keynote speakers include fib member Dr Michael Haist, Dr Shunji Kanie and Dr Henricus Priyosulistyo.


IV International Conference on Structural Engineering Education – Abstract submission deadline


The fib co-sponsors the IV International Conference on Structural Engineering Education, which will be held in Madrid the 20 – 22 June 2018. The Conference is organised by the Spanish Structural Engineering Association (ACHE), and co-sponsored, together with the fib, by the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE), the International Association for Shell and Spatial Structures (IASS) and the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE).

The skills required by structural engineers in the past were always well defined and remained mainly within the technical domain. However, the situation has now changed. The modern structural engineer must be creative, communicative, and able to work with others in an international setting involving social and environmental issues. This means that a new type of education is needed. This conference will examine how the training of both engineers and architects has changed to face these new challenges. The deadline for the abstract submission is 17 December 2017. For more information, please visit the official website.


SynerCrete'18 International Conference - Abstract submission is now open



SynerCrete'18 (Interdisciplinary Approaches for Cement-based Materials and Structural Concrete: Synergising Expertise and Bridging Scales of Space and Time) will take place in Funchal, Portugal from 24 to 26 October 2018.

The conference is established as a final discussion around COST Action TU1404 (open to any interested person/party), which focuses on early age behaviour and its interaction with service life of cement-based materials and structures. Special attention is given to interdisciplinary approaches as well as new exciting fields of research that inherently require collaborative work among scientific disciplines. This conference counts on the simultaneous support of the fib, COST, RILEM, ACI and JCI. Therefore, in view of this global reasoning the following set of sub-topics is envisaged: Concrete technology and advanced material testing, Multi-scale in time and space modelling and experiments, Multi-physics simulation and structural design, BIM and structural concrete, Robotics and cement-based materials, Digital fabrication, On-site monitoring and structural condition assessment, Scientific insights vs. standardisation, New materials : bio-based, geopolymers and alkali-activated materials and Fibre-reinforced concrete and non-metallic reinforcement.

SynerCrete'18 also features:

- 9 confirmed invited speakers
- Free access to the proceedings after the conference
- Outstanding contributions will be included in a special issue of the Journal of Advanced Concrete Technology
- Interdisciplinarity award
- Technical visit to the extension of the airport of Madeira

The platform for abstract submission is now open in the website of SynerCrete, and abstracts are due by 23 March 2018. Please visit the platform for abstract submission.


UAE new fib member



The fib is honoured and delighted to welcome the United Arab Emirates as a new fib member. The UAE is our 44th national member. The Society of Engineers of the United Arab Emirates was formally founded on 3 April 1979 to facilitate the increasing demands in professional expertise and accreditation of the engineers in the UAE. The society is a semi-government sector and a non-profit organisation who strives to provide great services to its 40,000 members.

Mr Mohamad Khodr Al-Dah is the UAE Head of Delegation and Prof Sherif Yehia is the UAE deputy.

Welcome to the UAE!


fib YMG Tokaj



After its official launching at the fib Symposium in Maastricht last June, the fib Young Members Group (fib YMG) has participated in the Central European Congress of Concrete Engineering (CCC), held in the charming wine region of Tokaj (Hungary) from 31 August to 1 September 2017. Sólyom Sándor from Hungary and David Citek from Czech Republic presented the activities of the fib YMG to the audience and encouraged young professionals to join this exciting initiative. Prof György L. Balázs, Chairman of CCC2017 Congress, was also happy to count with a young active group within the fib that will take part of future events and promote interesting activities.
