The annual symposium of the International Association for Shell and Spatial Structures（IASS 2022）will be affiliated with 13th Asian-Pacific Conference on Shell and Spatial Structures (APCS 2022). You can get more information from the website: http://www.iass2022.org.cn/.
DATES AND FORMAT
The symposium will be held on 19-22 September 2022 in hybrid online and in-person format. The venue in-person format is at Beijing Friendship Hotel, Beijing, China.
