The workshop is organized under the sponsorships of Working Group (WG) 8 (Seismic Behaviour of Irregular and Complex Structures) of EAEE. This international event promotes sharing and dissemination of research results, as well as networking in different fields.
The workshop will provide a platform for discussion and exchange ideas, as well as to gain new insights on the possibilities and challenges of irregular and complex structures. Papers will be included in the proceedings to be published by Springer.
