  • Seismic retrofit of existing structures
  • Textile-reinforced mortars
  • Hybrid structures combining FRP with other materials
  • Concrete-filled FRP tubular members
  • Sandwich structures
  • All-FRP structures
  • Smart FRP structures
  • Fire, impact and blast loading
  • Durability
  • Inspection, monitoring and quality assurance
  • Life-cycle performance
  • Sustainability and recycling
  • Bio-based composites
  • Thermoplastic-based composites
  • Composites for wind energy
  • Design codes and guidelines
  • Education
  • Case studies

Special Sessions – Call for proposals is open

CICE2025 Organizing Committee encourages the organization of Special Sessions to supplement the regular conference program, providing the opportunity to focus on specific emerging topics within the conference’s scope. A call for Special Sessions is now open. Proponents are invited to send an abstract describing the topic and objectives of the Special Session, together with their brief biographies to (with “Special Session Proposal” as the subject) until September 15, 2024.

The abstracts for the Special Session proposals should be prepared following this template, where additional details are provided.

Note: Special Session proposals will be evaluated based on the relevance of the topic and the qualifications of the organizer(s). Notification of approval will be made on a rolling basis.

Short Courses

Before the conference, on the 8 July, 2025, the following three short-courses will be organized, targeted to designers, contractors, manufacturers and researchers:

Course 1

Title: “Future Eurocode for the Design of FRP Structures”
Duration: Half-day
Target audience: Designers, Contractors, Manufacturers, Researchers

Course 2

Title: “Second Generation of Eurocode 2 for the Design of Concrete with FRP”
Duration: Half-day
Target audience: Designers, Contractors, Manufacturers, Researchers

Course 3

Title: “Advanced Finite Element Modelling of FRP Materials and Structures”
Duration: One day
Target audience: Post-graduate Students and Researchers

Further information will be available soon.

Student Competition

The Student Competition consists of simulating and predicting the behavior/performance of a composite structure, to be tested, with live streaming, prior to the CICE 2025. The geometry, support and load conditions, as well as the relevant material properties, will be made available on the CICE 2025 website, along with the competition rules, for the blinded prediction response. An international jury will supervise all the steps of the competition.

Further information will be available soon.


In addition to the institutional IIFC awards (IIFC Medal, IIFC Distinguished Young Researcher Award, President’s Award and IIFC Best PhD Thesis Award), the following prizes will be awarded in the conference:

  • Best paper in “FRP in new construction”
  • Best paper in “FRP strengthening of existing structures”
  • Student competition award

Further information will be available soon.
