The UIA World Congress of Architects CPH 2023 is an opportunity to meet and engage with some of the most influential and innovative profiles in the built environment. Our speakers have all been carefully selected for their strong contributions to architecture, science, business and politics.
The programme is still a work in progress, but on this page, you will find an overview of confirmed sessions and speakers in the official programme. The estimated 250 – 300 paper presentations have yet to be scheduled.
The congress programme runs from 8.30 am to 4.30 pm on Monday to Wednesday and from 9 am to 2 pm on Thursday. Other activities will take place outside congress hours in and around Copenhagen so there is plenty to experience while you are here. More information to come.
