ICSA2019 – 4TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON STRUCTURES AND ARCHITECTURE

24-26 JULY 2019, LISBON, PORTUGAL

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

I am pleased to inform you that ICSA2019 – The 4th International Conference on Structures and Architecture will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, July 24-26, 2019 (www.icsa2019.com).

The aim of ICSA2019 is to present research and developments on the merging of architecture and structural engineering and is intended for an audience of researchers and practitioners world-wide with a background in architecture and in structural engineering.

This is the world's leading and largest global conference bridging the gap between Structures and Architecture. The contributions on creative and scientific aspects in the conception and construction of structures, on advanced technologies and on complex architectural and structural applications represent a fine blend of scientific, technical and practical novelties in both fields.

The conference will facilitate the meeting of international participants interested in the recent advances in the art, practice and theory of designing and building infrastructures in which the structural and architectonic values are consciously combined and the contribution of each other is mutually enhanced.

It includes architects, structural and construction engineers, builders and building consultants, construction industry persons, academics, researchers, students, product manufacturers, material suppliers, project managers and contract administrators, asset managers, government authorities of infrastructure development and others.

Abstracts should be submitted by using in the restricted area of ICSA2019 webpage, in electronic form, before March, 15th, 2018. Abstracts will be subjected to a review process by at least two members of the scientific committee.

Authors will be notified about the preliminary acceptance of abstracts until May, 15th, 2018.

The proceedings will be published by Balkema (Taylor & Francis Group), including a book of extended two-page abstracts and a CD-ROM containing the full eight-page papers. These documents are due on November, 15th, 2018. Acceptance will be notified before February, 15th, 2019. Proceedings will be sent for indexation by both Thomson Reuters (Conference Proceedings Citation Index – ISI Proceedings) and Elsevier (Scopus and EI). 

Updated information on ICSA2019 can be found at www.icsa2019.com

We count on you and look forward to receiving your proposals.

The International Conference on Structures and Architecture is the world's leading and largest global conference bridging the gap between Structures and Architecture.

The contributions on creative and scientific aspects in the conception and construction of structures, on advanced technologies and on complex architectural and structural applications represent a fine blend of scientific, technical and practical novelties in both fields. 

Although Architecture and Structural Engineering have both their own historical development, their interaction has led to many fascinating and delightful structures. To bring this interaction to a next level there is a need to stimulate the inventive and creative design of architectural structures to persuade architects and structural engineers to further collaborate in this process, exploiting together new concepts, applications and challenges.

The conference is intended foran audience of researchers and practitioners world-wide with a background in architecture and in structural engineering. 

It includes architects, structural and construction engineers, builders and building consultants, construction industry persons, academics, researchers, students, product manufacturers, material suppliers, project managers and contract administrators, asset managers, government authorities of infrastructure development and others.
