Theme-based Presentations

Presentations in theme-based sessions by outstanding engineers, researchers and academics of structural engineering.

To ensure quality presentations on all key topics of the Conference, all parallel session presentations will be invited by session leaders who are leading experts on the topics in their own right under the overall co-ordination of the Conference Organizing Committee.

The following theme-based sessions have been organized for the Conference:


The full papers of the keynote presentations will be published in the Conference Proceedings together with the abstracts of all the theme-based presentations. Soft copies of the full papers of both keynote and theme-based presentations will also be published for wide dissemination. All papers will be reviewed by the Editorial Board of the Conference.


English is the official language and is the only language to be used for presentations and publications. There will be no translation into other languages.

The website will be up-dated monthly. This is the Oct 2013 version
