Special Sessions

Call for Special Sessions

EASEC-16 will provide an excellent forum for participants from around the world to review, discuss and present the latest developments in the broad discipline of structural engineering and construction. It will also be a great platform for participants to renew friendship and establish new collaborations.


Abstracts are now invited for EASEC-16, with a focus on the conference topics listed below. Deadline for submission of abstract is 29th March 2019. Further details on abstract template and submission are available on www.easec16.com.au.


Proposals for Special Sessions are also invited: If you are interested in organising a special session as part of EASEC-16, please email [email protected] the title of your proposed session together with at least 6 intended papers. Upon acceptance, the Committee will invite the proposer to present in the special session as an Invited Speaker with a waived registration fee.
