The 2nd International Symposium on Jointless & Sustainable Bridges Harbin, China, 15-19 July, 2019

Welcome to ISJSB 2019

The 2nd International Symposium on Jointless & Sustainable Bridges (ISJSB 2019) organized by International Association of Jointless Bridge (IAJB) will take place in Harbin from 16th July to 17th July, 2019. A myriad of topics will be discussed during the symposium including but not limited to Seismic Response and Resilience of Jointless Bridges, Design and Construction of Jointless Bridges, Retrofitting of Existing Conventional Bridges to a New Integral Configuration, Soil Structure Interaction (SSI), Development of Sustainable Bridges, and Durability performance of bridges, etc.

With an expected attendance of hundreds of industry professionals and specialists from across the globe, the symposium overlooks the future development of jointless bridges with s special focus on their sustainability and resilience. The application of jointless bridge is still in its infancy in China. Participants of the symposium will have an opportunity to exchange ideas and knowledge with others on the design, construction and maintenance of jointless bridges and provide their insights on the future research perspectives.

Famed as the ‘Oriental Paris’ and ‘Eastern Moscow’ in Asia, Harbin is the center of industrial and cultural capital of Northeast China. The city is notable for its historical Russian legacy as well as east-meets-west neoclassical-styled architectures blended with a Russian flair. With Harbin’s mild summer weather, vibrant culinary indulgence and diverse attractions, participants will surely immerse themselves in a one-of-a-lifetime experience alongside with the local engineering scenes.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we welcome you to the symposium and look forward to meeting you this summer in Harbin.
