Welcome to the website of the 10th International Masonry Conference (10thIMC). The conference is co-organized by the Politecnico di Milano (Technical University of Milan), Italy, where the event will take place 9 to 11 July 2018, and the International Masonry Society (IMS).

The conference aims to continue the successful series started in 1986 in London, where the first International Masonry Conference was organized by the former British Masonry Society, and continued until the 9th IMC Conference, held in Guimarães, Portugal, in 2014.


Masonry, whether of stone or brick, is the oldest building material. In most countries, masonry buildings provide a major part of the architectural heritage, with masonry continuing to be much used in modern construction today. New techniques allow construction of high rise buildings and the achievement of high energy performances in today’s new masonry buildings.


The conference provides an opportunity to exchange information on the advancement of new research in the field of masonry structures, and is addressed to researchers and professionals dealing mainly with the design of new masonry structures, assessment of historical buildings, retrofitting and rehabilitation techniques.
