The 2023, 7th International Conference on Civil Architecture and Structural Engineering (ICCASE 2023) was successfully held in Guangzhou, China from 14 to 16 April 2023 as a virtual event. This Seminar was the seventh in a series of topical meetings. ICCASE 2023 was attended by about 250 participants from different countries.
For this seventh meeting we chose Guangzhou as our conference venue and met with old and new friends. The location of the conference may have changed, but what remained unchanged is the aim of these meetings, which is to discuss recent advances and new perspectives in civil architecture and structural engineering in a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. At this meeting, we had a comprehensive overview of this fascinating field, and of future scenarios, thanks to the participation of leaders of some important projects.
The Conference presented an outstanding program of papers covering the most recent advances in civil architecture and structural engineering, including high-rise buildings and large-span structures, monitoring and control of structures, tunnels and underground structures, calculation principles of seismic design of structures, seismic isolation technology of structures, etc. The papers in this proceedings, published by IOS Press, represent a collection of the invited talks.
The conference program consisted of fifteen keynote speeches presented in plenary sessions, including many speeches on hot topics, highlighting the most recent advances in related fields, and various oral and poster presentations. The program included speeches by Professor Xiangsheng Chen (Shenzhen University; Chinese Academy of Engineering; Russian Academy of Engineering). The professor is a famous expert in the field of tunnel and underground construction, urban rail transit engineering, special geotechnical construction, and well construction. Over the past 40 years he has completed more than 60 research projects supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and the National Programs for Science and Technology Development. He has published nine monographs, five of which were authored by him, and delivered over 100 papers at home and abroad.
We would like to thank the participants, especially those who contributed speeches, posters and manuscripts, for making ICCASE 2023 such an exciting and memorable conference. We thank the Academic Committee for their advice and suggestions and the Organizing Committee for their tireless and expert efforts in the organization of ICCASE 2023.
