Wroclaw University of Technology is honoured to organize the next edition of the International Conference Footbridge. After successful three previous editions in 2002 (Paris), 2005 (Venice) and 2008 (Porto), the 4th International Conference Footbridge will be held in Wrocław (Poland) on July 6th – 8th, 2011.
Aim of the conference
The conference is held in Poland, a country which after joining the European Union strives for a prompt modernization of the transport infrastructure. Many communities around the world also begin the process of such modernization, including pedestrian footbridges, which may significantly contribute to their future economic and cultural development. The investment costs, technology and execution time are crucial issues nowadays, so it is important
to discuss solutions which are inexpensive and universal. Then,
the main objective of the conference, except for the presentation of impressive architectural and engineering achievements, is also the introduction of universal, aesthetic footbridges made from various materials of high quality and durability. Problems that remain still current are the comfort of usage and creation of a data base on dynamic features of footbridges. The keynote of the conference is “Attractive Structures at Reasonable Costs”.
Who should attend
The conference is intended for researchers, civil engineers, designers, architects and students interested in the latest results
of research and developments concerning various problems
of footbridge structures.
