1 New Model Code – expected impacts and practice of use
Experiences with New Model Code clauses in the fi eld of design, analysis and execution of concrete structures. Expected improvements and new areas of interest.

2 Concrete and construction technology – transfer of experience
Advanced types of concrete and reinforcing materials. Research results and their application in structural engineering. Progressive technologies of construction.

3 Modelling and design of outstanding and innovative structures
Numerical methods and their application in modelling and design procedures. Design of remarkable and non-traditional concrete structures in illustrative examples. Innovative structural systems.

4 Structures integrated into environment in a balanced way
Interaction of concrete structures and environment with respect to context. Sustainable structures. Structural concrete as a natural material suitable for structures being friendly to environment.

5 Combination of structural concrete with other materials
Composite and hybrid concrete structures exhibiting favourable concrete properties in structural performance. Interaction of concrete with other materials – problems, analysis, structural arrangements, detailing.
