After a great success of the First World Congress on Advances in Structural Engineering and Mechanics (ASEM11plus), held in 2011 in Seoul, Korea, the Second ASEM13 will be held on 8-12 September 2013 in Jeju Island in Korea. As the "ASEM13" Congress will combine 7-8 International Conferences into a single event, it will create an excellent opportunity for the participants to be provided with a greater variety of topics and to promote discussions on the issues of the future developments in the allied fields. Thus the congress will be a premier international forum that brings together academics and practicing engineers to exchange frontier research results and emerging technologies in the broad topics of Structural Engineering and Mechanics. You are cordially invited to attend this interesting event.
The ASEM13 congress consists of the following 2013 International Conferences on;
Engineering & Mechanics (ISEM) (1999, 2002, 2004, 2008, 2011)(Title
The congress will be held during 8-12 September, 2013. Other important dates are:

congress will be composed of the plenary and semi-plenary presentations and
concurrent sessions. A number of world renowned scholars will be invited to
give keynote lectures at the plenary/semi-plenary sessions on a variety of
topics of academic and industrial interests. The list of keynote speakers will
be announced later.
Those who have interests in the emerging technologies in a wide range of topics of the ASEM13 congress are invited to submit abstracts (approx. 300 words) to the Secretariat of Congress. After acceptance of abstracts, the 4-20 page proceedings papers(single column) should be submitted. Both abstracts and proceeding papers should be submitted through the TeMUS (Techno-Press electronic Manuscript Upload System). Alternatively, authors may submit their papers to any one of Techno-Press journals for possible publication instead of submitting to the conference proceedings.
Detailed instructions to prepare the abstracts and proceeding papers will
be available in the Guidelines
for Abstract/Paper Submission. (http://asem.cti3.com/Instructions-to-Authors.doc)
Those who are interested in organizing a mini symposium (MS) with papers in the areas of their expertise are invited to organize a mini symposium at the ASEM13. A mini symposium may have a single session or multiple sessions with 5-8 papers each. In case of successful organization, the mini symposium organizer’s paper will be considered as an invited paper and he/she will be provided with a free registration. For Guidelines for Session Organizers, the prospective mini symposium organizers should inquire with the congress Secretariat or visit; (http://asem.cti3.com/ASEM13-Guidelines-for-MS-Organizers.pdf)
The accepted abstracts of papers presented at the congress
will be published in the Volume of Abstracts and the conference papers on CD.
Only pre-registered papers (done by paying at least 50% of the registration fee)
will be included in the proceedings.
The congress will be held in association with the Techno-Press Journals of Civil, Mechanical, and Structural Engineering. Authors are encouraged to submit their Journal version papers (normally 14-20 journal pages(single column)) to the relevant Techno Press journals before or after the congress. The journal version papers should be prepared in accordance with the “Instruction to Prepare Manuscript of Techno-Press Journals” Submitted papers will undergo the peer review process and accepted papers will appear in the journal of your choice.
Those who are interested in organization of the special issues for any of
the Techno-Press journals are encouraged to contact the congress secretariat
for more details. The submitted papers should be peer reviewed and only those
papers accepted will be published. Some successful mini symposium organizers
will be invited to serve as a guest editor for the special issue of the journal
of their choice. For more information, please contact the congress secretariat.
