First Announcement: 19th ASEP International Convention

19TH ASEP INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION (19AIC)
“Structural Engineering for Infrastructure Resilience”
May 30 – June 1, 2019

Introduction:

Structural engineers play an important role in increasing the resilience of essential and critical infrastructures due to natural and man-made hazards. Although the major concern of structural engineers is to preserve the structural integrity of systems and physical infrastructures, increasing infrastructure resilience must also address organizational and ambient resilience to ensure the continued operational performance of infrastructures especially during extreme events.

The Association of Structural Engineers of the Philippines, Inc. (ASEP) calls on civil and structural engineers, architects, urban planners and disaster risk reduction and management researchers to gather and discuss the growing issue on infrastructure resilience building by attending the 19th ASEP International Convention (19AIC) with the theme on “STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING FOR INFRASTRUCTURE RESILIENCE” on May 30-June 1, 2019 at Crown Plaza Hotel, Ortigas Center, QC, Philippines.
