(Chicago) – Call for papers are now open for the Sixth International Conference on Structures in Fire (SiF’ 10), to be held on June 2-4, 2010, at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Mich. SiF’ 10 will bring together academicians, researchers, and practitioners from around the world to discuss the latest international developments in structural fire engineering. The conference is sponsored by Michigan State University’s Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering.
The SiF’ 10 organizing committee invites abstracts on structural fire engineering topics. The abstract should be about 250 words in length and must provide a clear summary of the proposed paper. It should include the title of the paper and full contact information of the authors. It should also contain sufficient information for reviewers to assess whether the proposed topic is in the scope of the conference and whether the abstract has relevant new information.
The deadline for abstracts is December 31, 2009. Please send abstracts to one of the following contacts based on topic: Jean-Marc Franssen, [email protected], numerical modeling; Andy Buchanan, [email protected], timber structures and fire protection materials; Paulo Vila Real, [email protected], steel and composite structures; Venkatesh Kodur, [email protected], concrete structures and any other topics.
The presentations for the conference will be selected based on the quality of the abstracts. Depending on the number of abstracts and the contents under each topic, some submissions may be invited to present as ‘posters’. All accepted abstracts, both oral presentations and posters, will be invited to submit full papers, which will be published in conference proceedings.
