31 May – 4 June 2021, Olsztyn, Poland


Central European Civil Engineering Meeting 2021 (CECEM 2021) will take place at University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn (UWM), Faculty of Geodesy, Geospatial and Civil Engineering (WGIPiB), Poland. The meeting is organized by international scientific society RESEARCH AND MODELLING IN CIVIL ENGINEERING in cooperation with UWM (Faculty of Geoengineering) as a combined ERASMUS+ and CEEPUS event. CECEM 2021 will have both Staff Training (STT) and Staff Teaching (STA) character. After the event a monograph entitled “Research & Modelling in Civil Engineering 2021” will be published. The monograph will be edited by prof. Jacek Katzer and it will consist of chapters prepared by willing attendees of CECEM 2021. Including chapters in the monograph will be free of charge. Colleagues from partner and non-partner institutions are encouraged to take part in the event. Participants are expected to obtain ERASMUS+, CEEPUS or other grants from their home Institutions. If needed, organizers will assist with booking suitable transportation and accommodation.

We consider CECEM 2021 as a great opportunity to share knowledge and experience in the field of civil and structural engineering. The week-long programme will include round table discussions, presentations, problem solving cases, lab visits, workshops and social events. The main objectives of CECEM 2020 include peer-learning, networking, transfer of knowledge and sharing research experiences and best practices. Participants are expected to bring into the discussion examples from their own institutions and present best practices or innovative approaches to the issues addressed.

Aims and Scope

Central European Civil Engineering Meeting (CECEM) aims to create a friendly, vibrant and invigorating environment for presenting and discussing the latest advances in research, technology and modelling in civil engineering. This international scientific event is focused on but not restricted to Central Europe. The best papers delivered during the meeting are selected by Editors (in cooperation with International Advisory Board) and invited for publishing in the peer-reviewed annual monograph entitled “Research and Modelling in Civil Engineering”. Extended and amended versions of the papers are published in the monograph. The wide range of aspects covered include: building materials, structures, modelling, new technologies, testing procedures and case studies. The monograph aims at contributing to the development of high engineering skills, techniques, testing procedures, research strategies and modelling practices in civil engineering. The interdisciplinary papers receive special attention from the Editors.
