General Information

The organizing committee welcomes you to the 9th international conference on composite construction in steel and concrete (CCIX). The conference will take place on Monday, 26th July 2021 – Friday, 30th July 2021 in Stromberg, Germany.

The main focus of the conference series is to provide an opportunity for researchers, practitioners and engineers to share and discuss their research, practical experience and innovations related to composite constructions with their peers in an open, international forum. Contributions should include fundamental work that furthers the understanding and application of composite constructions as well as technological developments and case studies.

One of the principles of the conference series is that it should be a forum where the latest research and case studies are presented. Papers are therefore submitted only a few months before the conference and may be adapted based on the outcome of the discussions during the conference before the final publication, which ensures that only the most current work is presented. In addition to the plenary and parallel sessions of the conference, CCIX will provide an opportunity for further discussions both formally, following the presentations and informally through social activities.

We are looking forward to receiving your extended abstracts and welcome you to an interesting event with a strong technical program in summer 2021!

Covid-19 Information

We are planning to hold the international conference next summer as a face-to-face event and hope that you will also contribute to its success with your personal participation. Should the Covid-19 pandemic restrict the arrival of international participants or even completely prevent a face-to-face event, we intend to hold the conference as a hybrid event or to be carried out entirely online.
