Infrastructure Sustainability and Resiliency are two fundamental issues at the forefront of modern engineering. This conference will serve as a forum to exchange ideas, assess the state-of-art, and offer a future outlook on how Engineering Mechanics can contribute to the development of more resilient and more sustainable infrastructures. The technical sessions and mini-symposia will also point out the need for cross-disciplinary research and education and will highlight the role of Engineering Mechanics as a powerful link across different disciplines.

Each thematic track will be composed of about 40 to 50 presentations organized in mini-symposia. Each mini-symposium will be further subdivided in sessions and each session will feature up to 5 presentations. Organization of mini-symposia focusing on specific topics within the tracks are sought at this time.
Interested mini-symposium organizers should send mini-symposium title, abstract (< 300 words), and a tentative list a speakers to the track chairs. Preliminary discussion of mini-symposium proposals with the conference chair is recommended.
