After careful consideration and in response to the continuing developments surrounding COVID-19, the Organizing and Scientific Committees of the 9th European Workshop on the Seismic Behaviour of Irregular and Complex Structures (9EWCIS) announce that the 9EWCIS will be postponed to a later date in 2020.
The 9EWCIS organisers are working to secure dates to reschedule the workshop at the same venue in Lisbon later in 2020. The new dates for the event will be announced as soon as possible.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
The 9th EWICS will be 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 will provide 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 will be 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.
Registration fee of 250€ should be paid before 15th of April 2020 and will cover:
- Conference material
- Book of proceedings with selected papers published by Springer
- Coffee breaks and lunches
- Welcome Icebreaker (*)
- Conference dinner (**)
If one author presents more than two papers, an additional fee of 50€ per paper will be charged.
The conference dinner is included in the participation fee.
(*) The welcome Icebreaker will be held on June 24th.
(**)Additional 50€ fee for accompanying Person.
The Papers are only accepted for publication in the proceedings if one of the authors is registered.

A group tour to Sintra is planned on June 27th, 2020.
Maximum number of 35 participants.
Nacional Palace of Sintra, a unique monument, distinguished by its outstanding historical, architectural and artistic value, is located within the Cultural Landscape of Sintra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995. Among other palaces, built by the Portuguese monarchs throughout the Middle Ages, only the Palace of Sintra that reached our times, with its authenticity preserved, still maintaining the same essential features of its shape and outline since the mid-16th century. The Palace has a remarkable presence in the landscape of the historic town centre, mainly due to its twin iconic chimneys.
The National Palace is the most important building in the city center of Sintra, and one of the most visited palaces in Portugal.
