Bridge conference

The Institution of Civil Engineers, in co-operation with renowned bridge engineers from around the world, is organising a series of international conferences to celebrate, at the start of the new millennium, the enormous achievements made in the field of bridge engineering in recent years.

The first of these was held in Singapore in October 1999, with participants from 18 countries.

Encouraged by this success, a second international conference is being held in Hong Kong on 25-26 April 2001.

In view of the highly active bridge engineering sector in the Asia Pacific countries, it is expected that this event will also prove equally successful.

Already nearly 80 high quality papers have been received for presentation from experts from many countries.

The scope of the conference will encompass state of the art bridge design, construction, maintenance and safety assessment. There will be papers on major bridge schemes, both completed and under construction, and on innovative approaches used in various parts of the world.

Particular emphasis will be given to local and regional projects and bridge related issues.

The conference will provide an excellent opportunity to discuss urgent issues and their possible solutions. It will be of interest to bridge consultants and contractors, practising engineers, researchers and bridge owners, both local and international.
