The International Association for Shell and Spatial Structures (IASS) symposia are much anticipated events for engineers, architects, and researchers. The symposia attract hundreds of participants each year from around the world who come together to exchange the latest ideas and exciting developments in the field and to network with professional colleagues.
The IASS symposia have been successfully held for over 60 years in various countries such as Brazil, China, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland, South Korea, Spain, the UK and the USA.
The only time the symposia graced the Oceania region was in 1998, in Sydney, Australia. It is wonderful that the IASS 2023 will be held in Melbourne, the cultural capital of Australia!
Apart from art galleries and museums, the city has many innovative structures and fascinating architecture, where splendid Victorian buildings alternate with modern skyscrapers. Melbourne’s multicultural background offers a wide variety of cuisines, sparkling nightlife and unique tourist attractions, alongside a passion for sport and music, meaning there is always something to do!
The theme of the IASS 2023 symposium is Integration of Design and Fabrication, which is becoming increasingly important with the developments of digital technologies in both design and manufacturing. The symposium covers all aspects related to material, design, computation, construction, maintenance, history, environmental impact and sustainability of shell and spatial structures in all fields of application.
We hope that you will take IASS 2023 as your opportunity to engage with not just the exciting Symposium Program and Social Events, but also to explore all that Melbourne has to offer.
We look forward to having you join us!
