About this PhD Symposium

Since its conception in 1996, the fib 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.

The 13th fib International PhD-Symposium in Civil Engineering should have been held in 2020 in Paris.

In mid 2020, in response to the COVID 19 pandemic, the Organising Committee of the PhD Symposium in Paris has decided in accordance with the fib to hold an 2020 online session of the PhD Symposium on 26-28 August 2020 with the hope of being able to propose an in-person second session in 2021.

Unfortunately, the evolution of the pandemic does not allow us to envisage serenely travelling in 2021. The second session will therefore also be organised online on 21-22 July 2021.

The program is now available !
