The river Danube is an international waterway flowing 2857 km across Europe from the heights of the Schwarzwald massif down in the Black Sea delta. In its passage, the second longest European river crosses 22 geographical longitudes, joining 8 countries: Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria and Ukraine. The International Conference on Bridges across the Danube has become a traditional international event in bridge engineering, initiated by Prof. Miklos Iványi and organized periodically each third year in different Danube countries: 1992 on a ship, sailing on the Danube from Vienna via Bratislava to Budapest, 1995 in Bucharest, 1998 in Regensburg, 2001 in Bratislava, 2004 in Novi Sad, 2007 in Budapest and 2010 in Sofia. The Eight International Conference on Bridges across the Danube took place in Timisoara (Romania) and Belgrade (Serbia) in October 2013 aiming at analysing present trends in bridge construction in every Danube country.
