Most historic buildings are built
Most historic buildings are built of masonry, a material as old as the Civilization and with a 1o,ooo years record of success and lasting qualities. The future is limited only by the designer, constructor or industry inability to consider a masonry perspective on a building challenge.
The conference provides an opportunity to exchange information on the advancement of new research in the field of masonry structures, and is addressed to researchers and professionals dealing mainly with the design of new masonry structures, assessment of historical buildings, retrofitting and rehabilitation techniques.
The conference is open to professional architects and engineers, building officials, educators, researchers, students, masonry industry and masonry construction professionals, and everyone else interested in the art and science of masonry. The objective is to make the conference the best forum for dissemination of the latest scientific and technical developments and for exchange of new ideas in emerging topics.
The first International Masonry Conference was organized by the British Masonry Society and held in November 1986 in London in order to exchange experiences, meaning and needs of masonry and its constituents in the UK, Europe and the whole world. This Conference series, now organized by the International Masonry Society, has become one of the most important international events in the masonry world. International Masonry Conferences take place every four years.
