Proceedings of the Congress

Technical sessions

During these technical sessions, each of the Technical Committees and Task Forces presented their achievements over the current work cycle (2020-2023).

Indeed, throughout a four-year work cycle, PIARC’s Technical Committees and Task Forces conduct a programme of exchanges and studies, resulting in the identification of good practices, the establishment of peer networks, the organization of seminars and the publication of technical reports.

Some papers from the international call were also presented by their authors during those sessions. This international call covered 49 topics which aimed at complementing the work done by PIARC’s Technical Committees and Task Forces.
