This will be the ninth in the international conference series on Advances in Steel Structures, with the first, second, third and sixth of the conferences series held in Hong Kong, fourth in Shanghai, fifth in Singapore, seventh in Nanjing and eighth in Portugal. As with the eight previous successful conferences, this conference is intended to provide a forum for researchers and professionals to discuss and disseminate recent advances in analysis, behaviour, design and construction of steel, aluminium and composite steel-concrete structures.
Papers related to all aspects of analysis, behaviour, design, fabrication and construction of steel and composite steel-concrete structures are invited. The following topics are not exhaustive and papers that fall within the general theme of the conference will be considered for presentations and for publications in the conference proceedings and uploaded to web www.icass2018.com. Selected papers will also be published in the International Journal of Advances in Steel Construction which carries a mission of technology transfer and is widely circulated among the engineering and building professionals.
