In Memoriam of Giovanni Solari

Posted on by Federico Canepa

The Research Group in Wind Engineering and Structural Dynamics of the University of Genoa is organizing an online event in memory of our dear Prof. Giovanni Solari on
April 19th, 2021, at 2 pm (Italian time),
5 months after his death.

The meeting is not of a scientific nature, and will only include personal testimonies.
The event will be visible on YouTube at the following link (already active).

Participation is free, during the open event it will be possible to write memories on the YouTube chat.


Call for papers “Risk-Informed and Life-Cycle Analyses of Structures and Infrastructures”

Posted on by Federico Canepa

A call for abstracts is open for the Special Collection on
“Risk-Informed and Life-Cycle Analyses of Structures and Infrastructures”
that will be published in the ASCE Journal of Structural Engineering.

The Special Collection is motivated by the increasing interest, within the structural engineering community, of risk-informed, life-cycle analysis for the design of modern structures and infrastructures, and for the retrofitting of aging ones.

International Wind Engineering online monthly seminars

Posted on by Federico Canepa

Because of the Covid19 pandemic, opportunities for the international wind engineering community to meet physically have been very much restricted and are likely to remain so for at least the next year.

To enable the community to continue to interact with each other, at least in a virtual way, the University of Birmingham is organizing a series of six seminars via Zoom from October 2020 to March 2021.  These are sponsored by the IAWE and will hopefully have a significant international audience. Each seminar will last around an hour and a half to two hours, and will consist of a main speaker for around 30 minutes followed by further short contributions or a panel debate. There will also be an opportunity for online discussion by those attending.

For the complete list of seminars and for further details, please visit:

Registration details, seminar programme and speaker and talk abstracts will be posted on each seminar’s webpage at the link above as they become available. Recordings of the presentations will also be posted after the seminars.
