More information of ''International Symposium on Life-Cycle Engineering and Sustainability of Infrastructures (ISLESI 2017)
Taipei’s high exposure to the threat of natural disaster is considered as the one of most at risk cities in the world. Thus, the issues related to disaster prevention and hazard reduction are becoming more and more significant. To reduce the threat from natural hazards, the effective life-cycle management strategies are needed for performance, reliability and sustainability of infrastructure at system level. As engineers, our mission is to improve public safety, facilitate economic growth, and protect the environment as well as eco systems. With this international symposium, we hope to strengthen the consensus of all sectors of government, academy, industry, and research institutions and to work together for cultivating young talents, promoting application and research on life-cycle engineering.
This year, to help enhance the international competitiveness of Taiwan’s construction industry, a 2-day intensive short course has been provided right before the symposium aiming to encourage construction related sectors paying more attention on the development of life-cycle engineering and applying life-cycle engineering technologies on projects. In addition, to cultivate young researchers, the Symposium Committee has planned the student paper competition to encourage graduate students in the Asian countries to submit research papers endorsed by their respective advisers. Congratulate to the selected 16 winning papers which will be presented in the parallel sessions of the symposium.The Symposium has attracted almost totally 290 persons of professional scholars and students from Taiwan,China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, United States, Mexico, Vietnam, Indonesia and Kenya,etc.Through this symposium, not only to be established a good communication network,also exchanged the practical engineering application.It was a very successful symposium.
