After careful consideration regarding the still critical pandemic situation in China, the local host and the organizing committee decided to cancel the ICCT 2023 Conference in Shanghai.

The International Conference on Industrial Construction and Cooling Towers, sponsored by IASS WG 3, will be held in Shanghai, China, from October 18th to 20th, 2023. The Conference is jointly organized and supported by:

  • SLCDRCE, State Key Lab for Disaster Reduction in Civil Engineering of Tongji University, founded in 1978 and is registered in China.
  • CICIND, International Association for Industrial Constructions, which is a private association, founded in 1973, registered in Switzerland.

The conference will be organized under the auspices of China Electric Power Planning General Institute, of International Association for Shell and Spatial Structures (IASS) and of VGB PowerTech, Technical Association for Power and Heat Generation. It will be scientifically guided by the HRW University of Applied Sciences in MüIheim/Germany together with the Tongji University.

ICCT 2023 follows successful previous symposia ISCT 2012 in Cologne, ICCT 2014 in Prague, ICCT 2016 in Rotterdam and ICCT 2019 in Edinburgh.

The aim of the conference is to bring together experts in building technology of Industrial Chimneys, Cooling Towers and Industrial Construction, in order to review chances for cooperation in research and development. Common interests as well as differences shall be identified in order to find best practice methods for design and construction. The conference will present actual developments and the state-of-the-art of all kinds of industrial construction like cooling tower, chimneys, ducts, silos, LNG tanks, solar towers. About 40 papers are expected to be presented in parallel sessions during the conference.
