Organizing Institutions

The conference is organised by the International Federation for Structural Concrete (fib) and the  Spanish Structural Engineering Association (ACHE).

The fib, Fédération internationale du béton, is a not-for-profit association formed by 45 national member groups and approximately 1000 corporate and individual members.  The fib’s mission is to develop at an international level the study of scientific and practical matters capable of advancing the technical, economic, aesthetic and environmental performance of concrete construction.

The fib was formed in 1998 by the merger of the Euro-International Committee for Concrete (the CEB) and the International Federation for Pre-stressing (the FIP).  These predecessor organizations existed independently since 1953 and 1952, respectively.



The Spanish Structural Engineering Association is composed of professionals interested in research and practical applications in the field of structural engineering. It was founded in 1999, under the name of the Scientific and Technical Structural Concrete Association, as a result of the merger of the Spanish Concrete Group (GEHO) and the Spanish Technical Prestressing Association.
