IABSE has never held a major international event in New Zealand, and Christchurch represented the first opportunity to participate in an IABSE .. Read more conference and regret that we are this time deprived from visiting this fascinating country. Very many residential buildings, schools, hospitals and infrastructures were demolished, but the city quickly re-constructed sustainable infrastructures and provides a unique view on a city rebuilding, which makes it an excellent example of using resilient technologies and a must-see destination. It is very fitting that the New Zealand Group of IABSE has selected Resilient Technologies for Sustainable Infrastructures as the theme for our IABSE Congress 2020 since the expression encapsulates the resilient plan and sustainable development of Christchurch. The congress theme will be underpinned by the specific topics including earthquake engineering, durability, forensic engineering, performance-based fire engineering, performance under multi-hazards, rehabilitation and modification of structures, sustainability, and so on. Overcome time difference and participate in the first IABSE Online Conference through internet, without departing from your home or work place, to gain latest insights in structural engineering and to exchange ideas in Q&A discussions. The Theme of this IABSE Conference is Resilient Technologies for Sustainable Infrastructures. IABSE Congress Christchurch 2020 will be a forum to present new ideas, practical applications, and new technologies to engineering staff, engineering managers, researchers, and industry.
