The International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE) is the principal host for the Symposium in collaboration with the Turkish National Group that will support the event. The Turkish National Group, Turkish Bridge and Structural Engineering has been founded in 1955 to promote high standards for every aspect of modern bridge engineering in the country. Since the beginning of its activities, it has also served as the Turkish Group for IABSE.

By offering a variety of channels for communication, members of the group can exchange professional and scholarly ideas and join international discussions platforms.
