General Sessions

The aim of ICSA2016 is to present research and developments on the merging of architecture and structural engineering.

Prospective authors were invited to submit one page abstract, of no more than 500 words, before 28 of February 2015. The abstracts were submitted in the restricted area of ICSA2016 webpage in electronic form.

The abstracts are being subjected to a review process by at least two members of the conference scientific committee. The preliminary acceptance of abstracts will be notified to the corresponding authors by 15 of May 2015.

The proceedings will be published by Balkema (Taylor & Francis Group), including abook of extended two-page abstracts and a CD-ROM containing the full eight-page papers.These documents are due on 15 of November 2015 and they will be reviewed by the organizing committee. Acceptance will be notified before 15 of February 2016.
