  • IASS Annual Symposium and Spatial Structures Conference 2020/2021 - Inspiring the next generation

    23 - 27 August 2021

    Inspiring the next generation incorporates:

    The IASS Annual Symposium (IASS SYMPOSIUM 2020/21) and the 7th International Conference on Spatial Structures (SPATIAL STRUCTURES 2020/21)  will be organised at the University of Surrey, Guildford, UK, on 23-27 August 2021.




    13 - 15 September 2021


    The tenth edition of the conference on Textile Composites and Inflatable Structures (STRUCTURAL MEMBRANES 2021) will be organised on 13-15 September 2021 at the premises of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Germany. The previous conferences of these series were held in Barcelona (2003, 2007, 2011, 2015), Stuttgart (2005, 2009) and Munich (2013, 2017). The last edition of Structural Membranes took place in Barcelona on 7-10 October 2019, in conjunction with the conference commemorating the 60th anniversary of the IASS.


    The objectives of Structural Membranes 2021 are to collect and disseminate state-of-the-art research and technology for design, analysis, construction and maintenance of textile and inflatable structures. The conference will address both the theoretical bases for structural analysis and the numerical algorithms necessary for efficient and robust computer implementation. A significant part of the conference will be devoted to discuss advances in new textile composites for applications in membrane and inflatable structures in the building and construction sectors, as well as in innovative design, construction and maintenance procedures.

    Structural Membranes 2021 aims to be a forum for discussing recent progress and identifying future research directions in the field of textile composites and inflatable structures.

    Structural Membranes 2021 will be supported by the IASS. It will also be a Thematic Conference of the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS) and a Special Interest Conference of the International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM).
