9TH EUROPEAN WORKSHOP ON THE SEISMIC BEHAVIOUR OF IRREGULAR AND COMPLEX STRUCTURES
ist-logo-02
The 9th EWSICS workshop took place on the 15th and 16th of December 2020.
Due to the status of the Covid-19 pandemic, it was decided to alter the 9th EWICS from an on-site event in Lisbon to an online event.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP The 9th EWICS is an event that continues the successful three-annual series of workshops started back in 1996. The workshop is organized under the sponsorships of Working Group (WG) 8 (Seismic Behaviour of Irregular and Complex Structures) of EAEE. This international event promotes sharing and dissemination of research results, as well as networking in different fields. The workshop provides a platform for discussion and exchange ideas, as well as to gain new insights on the possibilities and challenges of irregular and complex structures. Papers will be included in the proceedings to be published by Springer. The 9EWICS was organized at the Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon. IST, since its foundation (1911) has been the largest and most prestigious school of engineering in Portugal. IST professors and researchers have a significant experience in the fields of civil and earthquake engineering. They participate in numerous national and international projects, and collaborate with many civil engineering companies in Portugal, putting together technical and scientific community.
