The International Conference on Structures and Architecture, organised by the International Association of Structures & Architecture, is the world’s leading and largest global conference bridging the gap between Structures and Architecture. The contributions on creative and scientific aspects in the conception and construction of structures, on advanced technologies and on complex architectural and structural applications represent a fine blend of scientific, technical and practical novelties in both fields.

For the first time ICSA, the International Conference on Structures and Architecture is to be held in Aalborg, Denmark. It is a great pleasure for us to invite researchers and practitioners world-wide with a background in architecture and in structural engineering to the 5th ICSA conference. We will do our best to make ICSA2022 an inspiring conference.

Abstract Notifications released!

In accordance with the schedule, abstract notifications for research papers have now (15 May 2021) been released. At this point, we want to thank all authors who have submitted their abstracts to ICSA2022. We also want to thank all the members of the International Scientific Committee for their valuable effort in reviewing the abstracts. We have received an overwhelming amount of highly qualified abstracts, which hold great promise for the conference. Unfortuneately, we have not been able to accept all of them for full paper submission. Authors have been notified by email, but the notifications are also visible in Easy Chair and can be accessed via this link:

a viable urban perspective?

Through the critical framing, 'a viable urban perspective', ICSA2022 stresses the commitment and responsibility of structures and architecture as drivers of a viable urban development that address the pressing global social, economic, and environmental challenges facing us.
