STESSA is the specialty conference on seismic design and performance of steel structures. Its main mission is to provide an international forum for researchers and engineers to share with their peers the latest developments in the field of seismic behaviour of steel structures.
Previous editions of STESSA were held in Timisoara (Romania, 1994), Kyoto (Japan, 1997), Montreal (Canada, 2000), Naples (Italy, 2003), Yokohama (Japan, 2006), Philadelphia (United States, 2009), Santiago (Chile, 2012), Shanghai (China, 2015) and Christchurch (New Zealand, 2018).
The 10th International Conference on the Behaviour of Steel Structures in Seismic Areas (STESSA 2021) is to take place on 26-28 May 2021 in Timisoara, Romania. It is organised by Politehnica University of Timisoara and the Romanian Academy, Timisoara Branch, in cooperation with the University of Naples "Federico II".
The 10th anniversary edition of the STESSA conference returns to Timisoara, the city where it started, as a tribute to Victor Gioncu, who came with the idea of initiating the series of conferences dedicated to the behaviour of steel structures in seismic areas. This conference will bring together academics, researchers and engineers from around the world to discuss the latest developments related to the behaviour of steel structures in seismic areas.

Traditionally, STESSA Conference was, and hopefully still will be, a large forum of scientists around the World , aiming to meet each other, to exchange ideas and experiences on the progress in domain of engineering of seismic resistant steel structures, through debates in technical session and free discussion. The social events within the Conference had also their role in strengthening both professional and human links. Even if an online conference is possible, it cannot replace satisfactorily the on-place presence of STESSA participants.
Taking into account the uncertainty regarding evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision on the opportunity of organizing STESSA Conference on 26-28 May 2021 as a face-to-face event, as planned, or moving it to 2022, will be taken in early January 2021.
English is the official language of the conference. Abstracts, full papers and presentations at the conference should be in English.
The conference will be held at the Central Library of the Politehnica University of Timisoara, Bd. Vasile Pârvan nr. 2b, 300223 Timisoara, Romania.

Abstracts should indicate the scope of the paper and highlight its original contributions. The length of the abstract should be between 200 and 300 words. Please provide up to 6 keywords and select one of the topics (tracks) to which your paper suits best. Abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee, and you will be notified of the decision as soon as possible.
Authors of accepted abstracts are invited to submit their full papers here: indico.upt.ro/event/1/papers/. Regular papers should be 8 pages long and should be edited using the template provided at the same link. Please download, fill in, sign, and upload the publishing agreement together with your paper.
Papers accepted by the Scientific Committee and presented at the conference will be published by Springer and indexed in Scopus, Ei-Compendex and Web of Science. Final papers will be checked by the publisher for plagiarism issues. Each registered participant can present maximum two papers.
