Conferences, Seminars and Courses

Conferences & Symposia
The official fib Congresses or Symposia are organised on behalf of fib by one of its National Member Groups. Meetings of fib's bodies (for ex. General Assembly, Technical Council, Commissions or Task Groups) are as much as possible held in conjunction with these events.

Conferences Supported by fib
These are fib-sponsored or co-sponsored events on special subjects related to fib's fields of interest. fib is normally represented on the organising and/or scientific committees and lends general support through advertising and participation in the programme. Organised by Members or Member Groups of fib, these events may be co-sponsored by other international associations and meetings of single Task Groups or Commissions of fib may be held at this occasion.

Conferences and events organised by fib's members
Events can be organised by fib members under their own responsibility and these may be listed in the fib calendar.
Short Courses  
The Working Group "Short courses" (WG Crs), as part of Special Activity Group 2, "Dissemination of knowledge", organises short courses or seminars dealing with advanced knowledge related to structural concrete in general or on specific topics. The courses are held by experts from fib and can last a few days or up to one or two weeks. They are targeted to smaller, more local and more specialised audiences than symposia and congresses.

Recent fib courses have been held successfully in India, Turkey and Mexico. Upcoming courses are listed in the conferences and events calendar
