for the symposium exposition
 

AThe International Association for Shell and Spatial Structures (IASS) and Structrual Membranes are organizing a joint symposium in October 2019. The symposium will take place from 7 to 10 october 2019 in Barcelona, Spain. The conference venue is at the crown plaza hotel. It is located close to the medieval city center of Barcelona and venue of the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition with a the famous German pavilion by Mies van de Rohe.

Theme and Topics

The theme of the 2019 symposium will be Form and force. In this symposium we aim to connect academia, companies by organizing an exposition during the symposium. Academics and companies are invited to design, build and expose innovative structures. The challenge that the organizers set is to present step-changing new concepts that will lead to a better, innovative world and a better build environment. Special attention will be given to design, engineering, construction, operation and maintenance of shell and spatial structures as well as the potential impact that digital technology and BIM can have and has on the built environment and how we can improve our built environment with this technology.

 
 
Previous Conferences

The IASS symposia rotates over the world since the 1960s. Previous conference venues have been Brazil (2013), Seoul (2012), London (2011), Shanghai (2010), Hamburg2017 and Boston (2018). The structural membranes symposia were located in Barcelona, Stuttgart and Munich.

 
 
Visitors Profile
