The circumcenter.

The three ANGLE bisectors of a triangle also bisect the sides, and intersect at a point INSIDE the triangle. The angle bisectors are not necessarily perpendicular to them. The perpendicular bisectors of the sides can intersect in a point either inside or outside the triangle, depending on the shape of the triangle.

Since the intersection of the perpendicular bisectors of a triangle is the center of the inscribed circle (we call it the centroid of a triangle), the answer is no.

The three perpendicular bisectors (of the sides) of a triangle intersect at the circumcentre - the centre of the circle on which the three vertices of the triangle sit.

The answer depends on what point of concurrency you are referring to. There are four segments you could be talking about in triangles. They intersect in different places in different triangles. Medians--segments from a vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side. In acute, right and obtuse triangles, the point of concurrency of the medians (centroid) is inside the triangle. Altitudes--perpendicular segments from a vertex to a line containing the opposite side. In an acute triangle, the point of concurrency of the altitudes (orthocenter) is inside the triangle, in a right triangle it is on the triangle and in an obtuse triangle it is outside the triangle. Perpendicular bisectors of sides--segments perpendicular to each side of the triangle that bisect each side. In an acute triangle, the point of concurrency of the perpendicular bisectors (circumcenter) is inside the triangle, in a right triangle it is on the triangle and in an obtuse triangle it is outside the triangle. Angle bisectors--segments from a vertex to the opposite side that bisect the angles at the vertices. In acute, right and obtuse triangles, the point of concurrency of the angle bisectors (incenter) is inside the triangle.

The perpendicular bisector of ANY chord of the circle goes through the center. Each side of a triangle mentioned would be a chord of the circle therefore it is true that the perpendicular bisectors of each side intersect at the center.
