The Istanbul Bridge Conference 2016 is aimed to provide a discussion platform to develop safe, sustainable and economically feasible solutions to be used in bridge research, design and construction. The current engineering challenges faced by the international bridge community will be debated. The conference will be held in Istanbul Hilton between Aug 8 and 9, 2016.

During the Istanbul Bridge Conference 2016, the expected attendance will be evenly distributed among the design engineers, construction engineers, academicians, manufacturers and students as observed in the 2014 conference with more than 400 participants. The conference will have awards for the outstanding bridge engineers and students. The social events will reinforce the conferences impact on international bridge community.

Accuracy of location, ease of travel, wonderful accommodation and all the other issues related to success of this conference have been precisely evaluated. We hope to have the chance to elaborate a lot of new unforgettable memories at the Istanbul Bridge Conference 2016 in Turkey.
