The conference and doctoral course Materials, Systems and Structures in Civil Engineering will be held in Lyngby, Denmark at the campus of the Technical University of Denmark. The full event is a part of the RILEM week 2016 and consists of a series of parallel and consecutive conference and doctoral course segments on different topics. It includes a segment on Historical Masonry. Each conference or doctoral course segment will function as individual events, but they will also have relations to other segments of the full event. In particular there will be thematic links between specific doctoral courses and specific conference segments.
