    Dear Students and Colleagues,

    We are delighted to announce that the final rules for the “IMC Students’ Challenge” are now available at our web site at http://www.9imc.civil.uminho.pt.

    The objective of this competition is to predict the maximum compressive load of two masonry prisms built with solid bricks, or hollow blocks, and mortar joints. The prisms will be tested on the first day of the conference (July 7, 2014).

     

    The winning teams will be awarded with the following prizes:

       1st Prize: € 750 (seven hundred and fifty euro);

       2nd Prize: € 500 (five hundred euro);

       3rd Prize: € 250 (two hundred and fifty euro).

    All MSc and PhD students organized by teams of three elements can participate. The Organization will offer to the first twenty team members that register to the conference a 50% reduction on student registration fees. Additionally, the first eight teams that submit the registration form will have a grant of € 500 (five hundred euro) per team for traveling and accommodation.

    The registration form must be sent until the 31st of January, 2014.

    During the conference, at least one team member must present the printed poster on a special Poster Session dedicated to the “IMC Students’ Challenge”.

    The “IMC Students’ Challenge”  is an initiative of the Organizing Committee of the 9th International Masonry Conference, to be held in Guimarães, Portugal, during July 7-9, 2014. This competition is sponsored by EuLA – the European Lime Association.
