International Summer School on Composites in Infrastructure (ISSCI)
July 18, 2016 - July 22, 2016
The inaugural International Summer School on Composites in Infrastructure (ISSCI) will be held in Wollongong, Australia on 18-22 July 2016. The ISSCI will be hosted by the University of Wollongong, with its co-organisers being The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Queen’s University Belfast, Tsinghua University, University of Queensland and Southern Cross University.
The ISSCI, to be taught by a strong team of experts including some of the best scholars in the world, will focus on the structural use of fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites in infrastructure. The ISSCI aims to prepare researchers and postgraduate students for high-quality research in the area and to prepare engineers for practical applications. It will provide a comprehensive and thorough treatment of the behaviour, modelling and design of structures incorporating FRP composites (including both FRP-strengthened structures and FRP-based new structures), with a strong emphasis on their fundamental mechanics. The ISSCI will include a one-day symposium which provides an international forum for all attendees to share their recent advances in both research and practice, and to benefit from discussions with the summer school lecturers.
The confirmed lecturers include Prof. Jin-Guang Teng (The Hong Kong Polytechnic University), Prof. Jian-Fei Chen (Queen’s University Belfast), Prof. Scott Smith (Southern Cross University), Prof. Peng Feng (Tsinghua University), A/Prof. Muhammad Hadi (University of Wollongong), Dr. Tao Yu (University of Wollongong), Dr. Dilum Fernando (University of Queensland).
