CBDG 25th Annual Conference

Message from CBDG Council

2020 was going to be the year in which we held our 25th Annual Conference, but regrettably this landmark event was unable to take place due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The situation didn't change in 2021 but on a positive note it has been decided to plan for the full 25th Annual Conference and meet face-to-face in June 2022.

How does concrete bridge engineering respond to the modern, post-carbon world?

The CBDG's 25th Annual conference will tackle the sustainability options for the design, construction, inspection and management of concrete bridges. Suggested topics for presentation include:

  • the circular economy
  • decarbonisation and net zero carbon
  • adaptation to climate change
  • modular concrete construction
  • optimal structural shape and form
  • digital design/construction/inspection
  • design efficiencies through enhanced inspection
  • case studies and project solutions

Subjects for consideration as presentations are welcome.

Please provide an abstract by the 18th February 2022. This must include a title and outline content (maximum 150 words). Presentations are typically expected to be 25-35 minutes plus Q&A. Following acceptance, the presentation in PowerPoint format will be required in advance of the conference.

More details of the CBDG's 25th Annual Conference will be posted as the planned programme progresses.
