to the XI International Symposium on fiber reinforced concrete (BEFIB 2024)

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to attend the XI International Symposium of Fiber Reinforced Concrete (BEFIB 2024) to be held on September 15-18, 2024 in Dresden. This conference became the key event worldwide in the field of fiber reinforced concrete.
The aim of this event is to exchange ideas and experiences about the development, testing, and applications of fiber reinforced concrete materials. BEFIB 2024 will be a very important meeting point for people from all over the world involved in research and development on modern concrete technologies. In addition, international recognized associations such as RILEM (International Union of Laboratories and Experts in Construction Materials, Systems and Structures), fib (Fédération Internationale du Béton) and ACI (American Concrete Institute) are strongly supporting the event. We also proud to be supported by the German national associations DAfStb (German Committee for Reinforced Concrete) and Deutsche Bauchemie (German Construction Chemicals).
The venue of the conference is Dorint Hotel Dresden, which is located in the center of Dresden. Dresden, the capital of Saxony, is a special place in many ways: it welcomes its visitors with a unique constellation of the river Elbe and downtown development. You can experience historical Dresden dating back to the Baroque era with its famous sights, such as the Zwinger, the Semperoper, the Hofkirche, the Frauenkirche, and many famous art collections such as the Grünes Gewölbe. The conference is organized by TUD-Dresden University of Technology, which is one of 11 German Universities of Excellence designated in June 2012. Its roots date back to 1828. Today, it hosts about 30,000 students, offers academic education in 17 faculties, and serves the industry with a vast annual research budget.
