Conference schedule

Three consecutive days in September Eurosteel 2023 will host lectures about steel and composite structures. Starting with plenary sessions in the morning, during the day there will be parallel sessions about various topics. See the concept program below. The exact program will be scheduled later.

Post-conference event

The three-day conference is followed by a post-conference event, to be held at nearby TU Delft, with the title “Addressing future needs by new technologies and education in steel construction”, with presentations from TU Delft, ETH Zürich, RWTH Aachen and Univ. of Liege. The exact program will be scheduled later.
