About the Symposium

Join us for the 13th edition of the fib International PhD Symposium in Civil Engineering. Since its conception in 1996, this PhD Symposium has evolved into a highly respected scientific meeting, connecting young researchers and high-profile scientists alike.

This event provides then an excellent opportunity for PhD students to share scientific thoughts and findings with the international research community from all over the world in the following fields: innovation in materials and structures, construction technology, structural analysis and design, durability and life assessment, sustainability and life cycle assessment and monitoring and strutural assessment.

In response to the current circumstances, the Organising Committee of the PhD Symposium in Paris has decided in accordance with the fib to hold an online PhD Symposium on 26-28 August 2020 and an in-person Symposium on 21-23 July 2021 in Paris, France.

The online symposium will allow the oral presentations of the students with an accepted abstract who won’t be able to come in 2021. If your are in this case, the deadline to submit your final paper is may 15

The in-person Symposium in August 2021 will concern the students with an accepted abstract able to come and not concerned by an online oral presentation in 2020. The deadline to submit the final paper in this case will be in March 2021

The post-conference proceedings for the two sessions of the Symposium (in 2020 and in 2021) will be sent to recognised databases like Scopus or WoS for indexing.

The registration for the online Symposium is now Open with no fees. To register, you must be connected to the website.
