The 8th International Symposium on Fiber Reinforced Polymer Reinforcement for Concrete Structures, FRPRCS-8 , will be held at the Conference and Culture Center of the University of Patras, Patras, Greece, from July 16 to 18, 2007. The FRPRCS is a bi-annual highly prestigious symposium focusing on the research, development and application of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) reinforcement (externally applied or internal) for concrete and other structures (such as unreinforced masonry, including historic buildings). The Symposium will continue the success of symposia held in Vancouver (Canada), Ghent (Belgium), Sapporo (Japan), Baltimore (USA), Cambridge (UK), Singapore and Kansas City (USA), attracting engineers and researchers from around the world.

On behalf of the Symposium Organizers it is a great pleasure to invite you, together with accompanying persons, to join us in Patras for the FRPRCS-8  Symposium. Patras, the European Capital of Culture in 2006, is the 3rd largest Greek city, situated 220 km west of Athens. It stretches along a bay in the north part of Peloponnese and is situated close to a series of islands in the Ionian sea, near beautiful beaches and mountains and within short distance to a number of famous historic places such as Olympia, Delphi, Mycenae and Epidaurus. The proximity of the city to these marvelous tourist attractions will provide you and your companions the opportunity to have an enjoyable holiday before or after the Symposium.

We look forward to welcoming you to Patras and to the Symposium in July 2007, and to sharing our hospitality with you, as we greet old friends and make new acquaintances.
