About Indian Structural Steel Conference


This international conference, organized by the Structural Steel Research Group, Department of Civil Engineering of IIT Hyderabad is the First Conference focussed on Structural Steel and its applications to be held from March 25-27, 2020 in Hyderabad. This ISSC 2020 conference is happening with an association of ASCE India Section and Springer Publications. 


It will be of interest to steel and aluminium structure designers and manufacturers, trade associations, design engineers, steel fabricators, architects, owners or developers of steel and aluminium structures, researchers, academics and post-graduate students. 


Aim and Scope of the ISSC


Steel Structures is a fairly vast field covering different constructional engineering branches and various materials used in combination of steel to provide a composite system. The applications of Structural Steel encompasses various industries including construction, automotive, aerospace, and marine. However, the development of novel structural materials and technologies, together with the computational tools and design specifications, are necessary for continuous advancement in the use of Structural Steel in numerous areas.  In addition, the role of the construction engineer is also to maintain the existing structures for the desired load and purpose, therefore there is also a need for new retrofitting techniques using sustainable materials. 


Hence, this ISSC 2020 conference aims at providing a forum where researchers, designers and construction engineers, structural steel manufacturing engineers and consultants, having explicit backgrounds but encountering similar challenges, joining together, in a friendly environment, to discuss and disseminate the most recent advances in the analysis, behavior, design, and construction of structural steel.  Thus, you are cordially invited to participate in the ISSC 2020 conference to be held at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Hyderabad, INDIA. 


The scientific committee of ISSC 2020 welcomes the papers that have the following scopes 


  • State-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice in structural engineering

  • Art and science of structural modeling and design

  • Novel analytical, computational and experimental simulation techniques.

  • Propose new structural systems and study the merits of existing ones.

  • Pioneer methods for maintenance, rehabilitation, and monitoring of existing structures.

  • Investigate the properties of engineering materials as related to structural behavior.


Hopefully, ISSC 2020 will have a relevant impact on the future research and development activity in all the topics included.


All the accepted papers of ISSC 2020 will be published in the Springer Special Conference Proceedings
