The Our World in Concrete & Structures (OWICS) conference series will be celebrating its 30th Anniversary in August 2005. Since the inaugural conference held on 25th August 1976, with the late Professor T Y Lin as keynote speaker, it has been held without fail in August every year in Singapore. The OWICS 2005 conference will be a very special one with many activities planned for the Concrete Week to be held from 22nd to 30th August 2005.
Many past and regular speakers and participants of the OWICS conference series will be attending OWICS 2005. Special recognition of these strong and dedicated supporters of the conference series is being planned.
Attendance at OWICS 2005 provides opportunities for the renewal of friendship and networking with our more recent participants with the main objective of the looking forward to the future of this conference series.
This then is the theme of the 2005 conference, “OWICS 2005 -Engaging the Future”.
All participants at this 30th Anniversary Conference will be invited to state the earliest and all other subsequent OWICS conferences they have attended. A roster of such participants will be included in the special OWICS 2005 Conference Proceedings.
