It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 10th International Symposium on Steel Bridges For A Green Planet to be held on 21-22 September 2022 at Intercontinental Hotel in Istanbul, which has been organised by ECCS members under the umbrella of European Convention for Constructional Steelwork since 25 February 1988.
Turkish Constructional Steelwork Association (TUCSA) organized the “8th International Symposium on Steel Bridges: Innovation and New Challenges” during the 2015 annual meetings of The European Convention for Constructional Steelwork (ECCS) held in Turkey. Now at 2022, once more Turkey is proud to announce and host the 10th International Symposium STEEL BRIDGES with the motto “For A Green Planet” to encourage innovations and new approaches on the field. In parallel with the symposium the below listed activities will also be performed;

As stated at the Background and Scope section below, Istanbul is one of the best places to organise the bridge symposium which is a natural bridge between Europe and Asia in addition to having five long span suspended steel bridges over the Bosphorous, Izmit Bay and the Dardanelles, including the 1915 Çanakkale Bridge with the largest midspan of 2023 meters in the world. This symposium gave us the opportunity and mission to organize and announce the 10th international symposium for architects, structural engineers, designers, steel fabricators and builders as well as environmental psychologists, urban planners and environmentalists to discuss new horizons on steel bridges.
We sincerely hope you will join us on 20-22 September 2022 in Istanbul.
