Welcome to the website of the Ninth Asia Pacific Conference on FRP in Structures (APFIS 2024). APFIS 2024 will be held in Adelaide, Australia, 8-11 December 2024.
APFIS 2024 is jointly hosted by The University of Adelaide and University of South Australia. Additionally, APFIS 2024 is the official conference of the International Centre for Composites in Infrastructure (ICCI) and is supported by the International Institute for FRP in Construction (IIFC).
APFIS is an international conference series that is open to researchers, academics, students, manufacturers, consultants, contractors and policy makers. Its aim is to showcase research, development and application of fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites in the built environment. The inaugural APFIS conference was held in Hong Kong in 2007. Since then, it has been held in Seoul, Korea (2009), Hokkaido, Japan (2012), Melbourne, Australia (2013), Nanjing, China (2015), Singapore (2017), Gold Coast, Australia (2019), Shenzhen, China (2022, online). The proceedings of past conferences can be found on the IIFC website.
APFIS 2024 will contain a variety of technical and social activities. On the technical front, there will be keynote presentations, panel sessions, general session presentations, workshops, and site visits. There will also be special issues containing selected conference papers published by Journal of Composites for Construction and Advances in Structural Engineering. On the social front, there will be a welcome reception, conference banquet as well as ample opportunities to network with colleagues and friends. The conference will be held at the Hilton Hotel in the picturesque city of Adelaide and hence delegates (and accompanying partners) are invited to spend time exploring the surrounds. The banquet will be held at the iconic Adelaide Oval.
