Pre-Registration and Housing Deadlines Approaching For 2005 NASCC
February 08, 2005 From American Institute of Steel Construction, Inc.
The deadline for receiving the pre-registration discount to the North American Steel Construction Conference is March 21. Also, the deadline for obtaining hotel rooms at the conference rate is March 4.
The 2005 Steel Conference is set for April 6–9, 2005 in Montreal, Quebec. The Steel Conference will feature the newest innovations in structural steel engineering, fabrication, detailing, and erection.
This once-a-year event is an opportunity for design and construction professionals to learn how to apply the latest technology and techniques to everyday work; to discover new product offerings from leading industry vendors; and to network with peers, customers, and future employees. This year’s Steel Conference will once again incorporate the Structural Stability Research Council (SSRC) Annual Stability Conference.
Nearly 50 technical sessions offer a variety of educational opportunities. Learn about topics ranging from improving detailing business practices to innovative steel design systems to practical information on serviceability design considerations. Some sessions focus on technical engineering issues (Designing to Prevent Progressive Collapse in Steel Structures), while others focus on fabrication (Castellated Beams: Fabrication, Applied Research, and Innovative Applications), erection (OSHA Subpart R Revisited), or detailing (What Detailers Need to Know about Welding and Weld Symbols). The conference offers pre- and post-conference Short Courses on steel design, seismic design in Canada, and managing the impact of delays. A tutorial on the fire resistance of structural steel framing is also offered. A copy of the advance program can be downloaded at www.aisc.org/nascc.
NASCC speakers are selected both for their expertise on the subject matter and the quality of their presentations. The Steel Conference features such industry notables as Jim Malley, Pete Carrato, Sam Easterling, Larry Griffis, Mark Holland, Rafael Sabelli, and Eddie Williams.
The NASCC is also the ideal place to view the tools you use everyday. This year’s exhibit hall expects to feature more than 120 exhibits. Displays will include software (engineering, detailing, and fabrication), fabrication equipment, bolts, safety equipment, coatings, and more.
Join 2,500 of your peers for the steel industry’s biggest event! Register online at www.aisc.org/nascc.
