Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

After the successfully organized 1st International Conference on Structural Integrity and Durability (ICSID 2017), it is my great pleasure and honor to invite you to attend the 2nd International Conference on Structural Integrity and Durability (ICSID 2018), to be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, from 2nd to 5th October 2018.

The objective of the ICSID 2018 conference is to bring together scientists and engineers from around the world to discuss how to characterize, analyze, predict and asses the fatigue and fracture of structural materials and components. The ICSID 2018 intends to be a forum for discussion of the present and future trends in experimental, theoretical and applied fracture mechanics, fatigue, structural integrity assessment, failure analysis, and other important topics in the field.

The ICSID 2018 conference will further promote cooperation among scientists and experts from university, industry and government involved in the field of the fatigue and fracture of materials and structures. For graduate students and researchers and engineers from industry a two-day School on fatigue and fracture modelling and analysis will be organized before the Conference, along with a roundtable discussion on the topic how to connect academia and industry.

Besides the excellent technical program, participants will have the opportunity to enjoy their stay in Dubrovnik, one of the most famous Mediterranean cities, world celebrated symbol of historical heritage and beauty, which has found its place in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Welcome to Dubrovnik, a beautiful city that features stunning architecture and a vibrant cultural life, with historical landmarks and untouched natural resources.
