On behalf of the organising and scientific committees, and the host organisation, the Concrete Institute of Australia, I cordially invite you to join us for the fib 2018 Congress in Melbourne, Australia.

The Congress will focus on the theme “Better – Smarter – Stronger” and is dedicated to bringing together leaders and practitioners in the concrete industry from all over the world.

The multidisciplinary theme of the Congress provides an excellent forum for engineers, scientists, specifiers, concrete technologists, researchers, academic, practitioners and professionals to connect, and to share knowledge and learn about advances in the concrete world.

The Congress will run over 6 days, featuring a 4 day technical program with a wide array of quality technical presentations by authors of accepted papers, a number of excellent key note presentations, site tours to local projects and organisations, and the chance for the many fib committees to meet face-to-face whilst experiencing one of Australia’s most vibrant cities.

The Congress will also include a number of social activities such as a Welcome Cocktail function, the fib Awards Ceremony, the Congress Dinner, and a number of opportunities for delegates and accompanying persons to enjoy Melbourne and its surrounds.

We look forward to seeing you “down under” in October 2018 and welcoming you to the fib 2018 Congress in Melbourne.

Professor Stephen Foster
Congress Chair
