Structural engineering stands at the frontier of innovation, shaping the future of sustainable infrastructure. The Indian Association of Structural Engineering (IAStructE) proudly thrilled to announce the forthcoming National Conference on Futuristic Structural EngineeringStructE NatCon 2024" scheduled to take place during 8th-10th November 2024, at PHD House, New Delhi, with the aim to showcase India's pivotal role in driving advancements of Structural Engineering. IAStructE is national apex body of structural engineers in India established with the objective to cater to the overall professional needs of structural engineers. With a rich legacy of engineering excellence, IAStructE spearheads initiatives that catalyze positive change and elevate the standards of structural engineering practice.

This conference offers a unique opportunity for industry professionals, researchers, academics, and students to engage in meaningful dialogue, share insights, and collaborate on interdisciplinary solutions that address the most pressing challenges facing in the field of structural engineering and to delve into cutting-edge advancements that are reshaping the landscape of structural engineering. Hence, participants can expect to gain invaluable knowledge, forge new connections, and be inspired by the latest innovations in the field.The conference will feature paper presentations by researchers around the world, keynote speeches by invited speakers and several discussions addressing the state-of-the-art technologies and future challenges in Structural Engineering. In addition, IAStructE would also appreciate the efforts of the scientists and engineers through various categories of award. Mahendra Raj Memorial Lecture and Structural Engineers Day shall also be celebrated during the event. There will be special sessions and activities for students and young engineers.

The overarching theme of this conference revolves around the pursuit of innovation in structural engineering. With a focus on sustainability, resilience, and leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning (AIML), this event seeks to explore transformative strategies that will define the future of structural engineering. The key topics of the conference include the following.

  • Global Innovations in Structural Engineering: Addressing structural design innovations in terms of reducing energy consumption, minimizing waste, making use of renewable resources, and advancements in research in the field.
  • Sustainability in Built Environment: Addressing the urgent need for environmentally conscious practices in construction and infrastructure development.
  • AI&ML Applications in Structural Engineering: Harnessing the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning to optimize design processes, improve efficiency, and enhance safety in structural projects.
  • Structural Resilience - Vision for the Future: Anticipating and mitigating the impact of natural disasters and unforeseen challenges through resilient design and forward-thinking strategies.
  • Health Monitoring, Forensic Structural Engineering: Exploring innovative approaches to prolonging the lifespan of existing infrastructure, reducing maintenance costs, and enhancing functionality.
  • Advances in Construction Materials & Technologies: Showcasing breakthroughs in materials science and construction methodologies that are revolutionizing the way we build and maintain structures.
IAStructE cordially invites academicians, researchers, practitioners, and thought leaders to participate and contribute for the presentation at the conference. Contributions should align with the conference themes and offer fresh perspectives, innovative methodologies, and practical insights that contribute to the advancement of structural engineering.There will be ample opportunities for manufacturers and other organisations to support the event by sponsorship and show casing their products and technologies to the enlightened participants.
