(ISEC) Conference Mission

The mission of ISEC Conferences is to enhance communication and understanding between structural, system and construction engineers and architects for successful design and construction of national and international projects. In this regard, interdisciplinary integration and international cooperation are encouraged. Life cycle systems thinking in civil and building engineering signifying feasibility, establishing specifications, designing, bidding, and construction are sought to be integrated. It is the purpose of ISEC to provide an international forum for the discussion of topics important to developing new knowledge in construction and structural engineering.

Earlier Structural Engineering and Construction Conference (ISEC) have been held at local and regional levels, such as the East Asia and Pacific Structural Engineering and Construction (EASEC) and Asia-Pacific Structural Engineering and Construction (APSEC) series of conferences. The aim of ISEC is to conduct such conferences at an international level.

After the successful completion of ISEC-01 in Honolulu, Hawaii USA, January 2001, ISEC-02 will be held in Rome, ITALY, in September 23-26, 2003. In view of the future-oriented ISEC-01 conference theme, "Creation of Systems for Future Technologies", and in view of the pivotal role of structural and construction processes in the development and progress of global society, ISEC sets itself the objective of utilizing all avenues and means available to achieve greater efficiency and effectiveness in all sectors and facets of structural engineering and construction. Areas which require particular attention for development and research have been identified as:

  • The integration of structural design and construction processes and methods; 
  • Information technology, and information flow and transfer to facilitate the above integration; 
  • Education and training in promoting design and construction integration; 
  • Promoting an atmosphere conducive to creativity and innovation for future technologies; 
  • Constructability;
  • Renewal engineering; 
  • Closer relationships between academia on the one hand and clients, design professionals and industry on the other.
