The Seventeenth International Conference on
Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering Computing
28-31 August 2023
Pécs, Hungary
organised in cooperation with the:
Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology
University of Pécs, Hungary

Final Conference Programme here

This is the seventeenth in the CIVIL-COMP series of conferences concerned with the application of computers to civil, structural and environmental engineering. The conference will provide a forum for the presentation and dissemination of recent research and developments in the use of computers in civil, structural and environmental engineering.

A major objective of the conference will be to link research and innovative ideas to engineering practice. Presentations describing technology transfer from recent research projects to practical projects are encouraged.
