XXVII Conference of Lightweight Structures in Civil Engineering

XXVII Conference of Lightweight Structures in Civil Engineering

Series of conferences organized by IASS Polish Chapters

 

The form of the Conference - XXVII edition - Lodz District, 2-3 December 2021

 

Since 2019, the world we knew has gone, probably forever, due to the coronavirus pandemic. Changes can be seen in almost all aspects of our everyday lives, including professional career, teaching, health care, transport, and travel, to mention but a few. Also the LSCE 2021 event will be different than before.

There are two equivalent ways in which Participants can fully attend the conference:

  1. Traditional participation – conference sessions held for two days at the Technical University of Łódź campus (with publication of abstracts and then reports as chapters in a monograph), accompanied by joint meals, coffee breaks and talks in the lobby. Last but not least, the event’s atmosphere provides new and old participants with a great opportunity to meet and establish professional relations.
     
  2. Remote participation – particularly suitable for foreigners and other guests who find it difficult or impossible to travel to Łódź. With this form of participation, we provide full access to a web-based platform offering a real-time display of all presentations and lectures as well as options to listen to and actively participate in post-presentation discussions, ask questions and more. This form also allows Authors to present their reports which will be included in the abstract book and their extended version will be published in a monograph. After the event, these materials will be collected in the conference proceedings and sent by post.

If conference meetings cannot take place in the traditional, face-to-face manner due to the pandemic, the conference will be conducted as a virtual event. This will have no effect on publishing abstracts and full articles in the monograph (conference proceedings will be sent to Authors by post).

 

 

 

 

 

On the 8th of September 2020, Professor Jan B. Obrębski, the Founder of annual LSCE conferences, passed away aged 77 at the height of his creative powers.
All His friends received this information with deep regret and profound sadness.

In the newest issue of "Journal of the IASS" there is a Memorial Note of Professor Jan B. Obrębski.

The LSCE 2021 conference organized in Łódź on the 2nd and 3rd of December shall be held as a tribute to honour the achievements and work of Professor Jan B. Obrębski. During His long professional career, He contributed to the development of many outstanding engineers and scientists. He was an originator and founder of a series of LSCE conferences which for over 25 years have served as a forum for exchanging experiences for scientists around the world. Many researchers globally recognized today have started their amazing careers at these events as young academics. Participation in this year’s edition of the LSCE conference shall be a way to express gratitude and recognize the work of its Initiator, Professor Jan Obrębski.

 

 

Lightweight Structures in Civil Engineering Conferences are a series of annual international conferences, which have been organized by Polish leading Universities.

 

The aim of the Conference is to bring together researchers and professionals from different countries and to provide opportunity to present results of their work.

The lightweight structure belongs to civil engineering objects, erected by peoples, which distinguish in relation to similar erected up till now, by relatively small amount of build in material and assuring simultaneously extremely high exploitation parameters like: large spans of roofs or bridges without middle supports, height of buildings, towers or masts and extremely large useful surface or free volume of buildings, tanks or reservoirs. It is intended that all following topics can be included: spatial lattice structures, plate and shell structures, domes and membranes, high-rise buildings, towers, reservoirs, bridges, thin-walled, tension, cable and pneumatic structures. Any kind of material and structures can be discussed which corresponds with above definition. Also all methods of analysis as: analytical, numerical and experimental are welcomed. The scope of the conference is not limited only to broadly understood theoretical considerations but also includes engineering issues related to new technologies in construction, implementation problems as well as the presentation of completed facilities.
