The first SEMC conference was held in 2001. This has been followed by six other events at intervals of three years. Speakers at the conference have included three IStructE Past Presidents (Professors Patrick Dowling, David Nethercot and Tim Ibell), and many other leading academics and practitioners.
The most recent event, SEMC 2019, took place in September 2019, and was attended by close to 400 participants from 62 countries worldwide. The proceedings, published by Taylor & Francis, featured 411 peer-reviewed papers.
The next SEMC conference will be rather special, as the SEMC series will be turning 21. Supported by the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) and the National Research Foundation of South Africa (NRF), SEMC 2022 is expected to draw the participation of practising engineers, academic researchers and postgraduate students from all over the world.
Many areas of structural engineering will be covered, including structural behaviour, construction materials, loading on structures, structural analysis, computational modelling, design and construction, structural health monitoring, repair and retrofitting.
The proceedings will again be published by Taylor & Francis, and will be issued to all participants at the start of the conference.
A selection of papers presented at the conference will also appear in a special issue of Structures, the research journal of the Institution of Structural Engineers.
Prospective authors are invited to prepare an Abstract of 200 to 300 words, and submit this to the conference chair, Professor Zingoni via email.
Deadline: 30 September 2021
A number of special sessions will be held within the framework of SEMC 2022. Special sessions, while devoted to the reporting and discussion of the latest developments on a particular theme, will be expected to have international relevance. They will typically feature 10 to 25 presentations.
The special sessions that were organised for the last SEMC conference may be seen on the Conference website.
If you are interested in organising a special session, you are invited to submit a proposal of not more than 20 lines. You can find full details about the special sessions on the website.
