The international conference series on Advances in Steel Structures was initiated in 1996 under the auspices of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, which remained instrumental in fostering its continuation — joined a few years later by the Hong Kong Institute of Steel Construction. This will be the eighth conference of the series (ICASS’2015) and the first to take place outside of Asia — indeed, the first, second, third and sixth conferences were held in Hong Kong, the fourth in Shanghai, the fifth in Singapore and the seventh in Nanjing. As its predecessors, this conference aims at providing a forum for discussion and dissemination, by researchers and designers, of the most recent advances in the analysis, behaviour, design and construction of steel, aluminium and composite steel-concrete structures. Abstracts of papers relating to all topics belonging to the general themes of the conference are welcome — they will be considered for presentation at ICASS’2015 and publication in the conference proceedings.

Once again, the ICASS’2015 conference will be held in conjunction with the IJSSD Symposium on Progress in Structural Stability and Dynamics (IJSSD 2015), focusing theoretical, analytical, experimental and design aspects of structural stability and dynamics. This partnership, which started in 2009, has been very successful in merging two technical/scientific communities sharing a large number of research interests.

The final deadline for submitting papers, for either ICASS’2015 or IJSSD 2015, is March 17, 2015.
