The 13th International Conference on the Developments in eSystems Engineering DESE2020 through this special session entitled “Advanced Materials in Bridges and Buildings for Maintenance and Strengthening”, DESE 2020, will provide a platform to discuss recent technical advancements and innovations in the profession of structural engineering, construction, and traffic engineering. The conference is an excellent opportunity for the exchange of ideas and knowledge, and for discussing future challenges. The session will provide scientists,engineers, enterprisers and infrastructure managers to present and discuss the state-of-the-practice and recent advances in testing and monitoring technology, in structural modelling and assessment methods, and in the application of advanced materials for pavement, structural strengthening for buildings and bridges. The conference will provide a platform for exploring the potential of international cooperation. The special session aims to bring together the state-of-the-art research and their applications in the fields of structural engineering, and traffic engineering.


This special session invites authors to submit high-quality research papers on the topics which include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Application of Advanced Materials in Bridge Engineering
  • Application of Advanced Materials for Pavements
  • Monitoring of buildings and bridges
  • Advanced Inspection and Testing
  • Structural Modelling and Assessment Engineering Methods
  • External Strengthening using FRP composites
  • Practical Applications and Case Studies
  • Structures in Fire
  • Traffic Engineering

Paper Submission:

Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers (not exceeding 6 pages) conform to the IEEE format . All papers will be handled and processed electronically via the EDAS online submission system.
