  • The 10th International Symposium on Steel Structures - ISSS2019

    November 13(Wed) ~ 16(Sat), 2019

    RAMADA PLAZA JEJU, Jeju, Korea

    Introduction

    This symposium will be the 10th in the international symposium series on steel structures organized by the Korean Society of Steel Construction. The previous symposiums in 2000, 2002, 2005, 2006, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017 were held in Korea with great success. This series of symposium is organized in cooperation with the International Journal of Steel Structures (IJOSS). The symposium will provide an international forum for a broad range of technical papers in steel structural researches and its applications. ISSS−2019 will bring together academicians and practicing engineers to exchange new ideas, technological developments, and experiences in Steel Structures.
