The conference organizing committee sincerely invite prospective authors to submit their Extended Abstract and welcome the related researchers to participate and make the presentation, to communicate the newest development of Structural Engineering face to face with our invited experts.

● The extended abstract should be written following the format of template. The abstract template is available here: Please limit abstracts to a maximum of 2 pages in A4 ISO format (29.7 cm × 21 cm) and include appropriate figures and tables.

● The abstract, in WORD format, should include the paper title, abstract, key words and the information of each author such as name, affiliation, title, address, phone and fax number, and the email address. Additionally, the corresponding author should also be indicated.

● Abstracts must be written in English. All text, graphics, chart, tables, pictures, etc. must be embedded into a final single file.

● The abstract will be reviewed by experts in the same research area. A notification of provisional acceptance and the manuscript template will be sent to the corresponding author once the abstract is accepted. All the abstracts will be published before the conference and distributed to participants during the symposium.

Please submit the abstract to the email:


English will be the official language for papers to be included in the conference proceeding. All papers will be peer-reviewed by 2 reviewers selected from an international board of experts. The Academic Committee will gather the comments provided by peer-reviewers, and inform the corresponding author. An electronic version of the final revised paper in both WORD and PDF format should be sent to the symposium secretariat through conference website ( before the required deadline. Minor format modification and correction may be subsequently made by the editors of the proceedings.
