Results of the first 30 years of the IBWC. Opportunities and future prospects

In this special issue of the magazine "Road", dedicated to the next, XVII IBWC Guatemala, I wanted to take stock of their activities and impact. I write in the first person because I want my words to be understood as a personal opinion.

over 30 years ago that the first congress was held in Argentina IBWC. This initiative arose from two admirable and endearing people, but very different. I mean the Brazilian engineer Helio Farah and recently deceased Argentinian Jorge Agnusdei licensed, which do a commentary at the end of the text.

16 already been made congresses and have accumulated more than 2.000 papers published. It is a huge technological heritage. The spirit of the IBWC, the original idea, is in excellent health as demonstrated by his impeccable track record, the number of participants or the number of papers presented in each edition.

In this text I wanted to make and expand a number of ideas that I threw in the presentation of the final day of Rio de Janeiro, nearly two years ago, on the occasion of the XVI Congress IBWC. These ideas, for consistency, I applied them to myself and this is the result.
