About ISSS-2015


This conference will be the 9th in the International Symposium on Steel Structures organized by the Korean Society of Steel Construction. The previous eight symposia were successfully held in Korea in 2000, 2002, 2005, 2006, 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2015 respectively. 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-2017 will bring together academicians and practicing engineers to exchange new ideas, technological developments, and experiences in Steel Structures.

The highly successful "International Symposium on Steel Structures" series is regarded today by the steel structures community as a major forum for discussion and dissemination of knowledge and for mutual exchange of ideas in all areas of research, development, design and innovation pertaining to steel materials and structures. This conference is the ninth in its series, the first eighth having been held:
