|Abstract(s):||The 11th International Symposium on Fiber Reinforced Polymer for Reinforced Concrete Structures (FRPRCS11), an event co-sponsored by IIFC, was held 26-28 June at the Vila Flor Cultural Centre of Guimarães City, in Portugal. Following peer review, 148 extended abstracts and full papers were accepted and published in the proceedings. Approximately 170 delegates representing 38 countries and 137 institutions were in attendance. The distribution of papers by theme is indicated in Table 1, where the tendency for a significant research effort on the “Reinforcement and strengthening performance of FRP systems” is clear, forming about one third of the accepted publications. The FRPRCS11 was composed of 20 sessions of 20 minutes presentations including about 5 minutes for discussion of each. The high technical/scientific level of the publications, and especially the enthusiastic and fruitful discussions which occurred during the presentations were highly remarked upon by the conference participants. Prof. Brahim Benmokrane and Prof. Stijn Matthys provided two stimulating keynote lecturers which provided extraordinary contribution to the motivation and enthusiasm of the delegates, and the scientific quality of FRPRCS11. The closing ceremony ended with the announcement of the chairman of the next FRPRCS conference, Prof. Zhishen Wu, who in 2015 will host FRPRCS12 in Nanjing, China.|
