International Summer School on Composites in Infrastructure
July 9-11, 2018
Tsinghua University, Beijing, China
Following the success of the inaugural and second International Summer School on Composites in Infrastructure (ISSCI), which were hosted by the International Centre for Composites in Infrastructure (ICCI) at the University of Wollongong in 2016 and 2017, respectively, we are organizing the third summer school of its series in the coming July (9-11 July 2018) at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China.
The ISSCI, to be taught by a strong team of world’s leading scholars, will focus on the structural use of fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites in infrastructure. The ISSCI aims to prepare researchers and postgraduate students for high-quality research in the area, and to prepare engineers for practical applications. It will provide a comprehensive and thorough treatment of the behaviour, modelling and design of structures incorporating FRP composites (including both FRP-strengthened structures and FRP-based new structures), with a strong emphasis on their fundamental mechanics.
Similar to the practice in the last year, in this year, the summer school will be followed by the second International Symposium for Emerging Researchers in Composites for Infrastructure (ISERCI), which will be held on 12-13 July 2018. The ISERCI series, initiated in 2017 by the ICCI at the University of Wollongong, aims to provide an international forum for upcoming researchers/practitioners and rising stars in the area to share their recent advances in both research and practice, and to explore research/industry partnership opportunities. Participants of the ISSCI are encouraged to attend the ISERCI with a discounted registration fee.
