11th International Conference of the International Federation for High-Rise Structures (2019)
26 - 28 Feb 2019 Singapore
Engineering projects around the globe are getting more and more ambitious as major cities jostle to be known for signature landmark buildings and overcoming impossible engineering feats. Today, structures compete to dwarf anything that has come before. Records are broken, design and technical boundaries are challenged; and new concepts on liveability and sustainability have also emerged in the race for space. Plans beyond imagination are on the drawing board for projects so huge – not only in scale but in their implications for society. Some examples include 'Tunnelling under the Alps', 'Bridging the Bering Strait', 'Widening the Panama Canal', ‘Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge’, the 'Burj Khalifa’ and the “Shanghai Tower”. Soon, we will be constructing beyond heights of 1000m, very long span bridges, very deep underground tunnels under the sea and structures in previously inhabitable spaces. We welcome research and case studies on these and many more exciting Extreme Engineering projects.
We welcome researchers, architects, planners, builders, constructors, (consulting and structural) engineers, developers, contractors, safety and security experts, financiers, academia, suppliers and all professionals involved in the field of extreme engineering to meet in Singapore at the International Conference on 26-28 February 2019. Singapore is where the world meets and where passion is made possible.
