Welcome to the website of the 11th International Conference on Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites in Civil Engineering (CICE 2023)!

The conference was held in the beautiful, fascinating, and vibrant city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from July 23rd to 26th, 2023.

This was the eleventh in a series of prestigious conferences that began in 2001, in Hong Kong, and has circled the world since; this was the first CICE to be held in South America. CICE is the official conference of International Institute for FRP in Construction (IIFC) and brings together the FRP research community and industry to share and discuss recent developments and future perspectives in the field.

Conference Co-Chairs:

Prof. Daniel Cardoso (PUC-Rio)
Prof. Kent Harries (University of Pittsburgh)
