Tomorrow's Megastructures

September 19-21, 2018
Preliminary Invitation 

• 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.

These are the main themes that will be discussed at the 40th IABSE Symposium organised by the French Group of IABSE in cooperation with the French Association for Civil Engineering (AFGC).

We invite you to share your experiences with today’s megastructures and to present your vision of tomorrow and your prospect of future outstanding structures. The web-based paper submission platform will be opening soon in April for authors wishing to present their paper in accordance with the themes and topics of the Symposium.
