We invite you to join us in Nantes, to share your experience with today's megastructures and to present your vision of those of tomorrow - and more broadly: your prospect for future outstanding structures!
Authors wishing to present a paper in accordance with the following topics are invited to submit their paper online using the web-based peer-review submission platform here..
• Megastructures: a radical paradigm shift or simply a change of scale?
• Today’s and tomorrow’s megastructures and megaprojects
• New trends for innovations in the construction, the preservation, the
exploitation and the upgrading of structures.
The Symposium will include Plenary and Concurrent Sessions over three full days.
Papers dealing with the symposium themes and topics will be selected from abstracts submitted to the Scientific Committee. These papers will be presented orally or by poster.
Invited Keynote Speakers will present lectures on key symposium topics at the plenary sessions. Sub-Plenary sessions will be devoted to specialised topics and concurrent sessions will be organised by topics according to the selection of the Scientific Committee.
Panel Discussions will highlight themes of widespread interest as identified by IABSE’s Working Commissions and Working Groups, in agreement with the Scientific Committee and the Organising Committee. Posters will be presented by their authors in facilitated sessions to enable contact with the paper authors during the poster sessions.
