This is not possible, and I do not even think such behaviour would conform to the SQL standard. If your design is sound you will need to do the concat on the client side. The reason I say if you design is sound is because the need to dynamically generate a table name could indicate that you need to normalize your design or at least review why you would need to concat the table name to begin with.
