Call for Papers

UiS has a pleasure of hosting a symposium devoted to the structural and aerodynamic performance of cables in long-span bridges, transmission lines, guyed masts, marine and other cable supported structures.  

The first International Symposium on Cable Dynamics (ISCD) was organised by Prof. Jean-Louis Lilien and the Association of Engineers of Montefiore (AIM) in Liège in 1995, and followed by the symposia in Tokyo (1997), Trondheim (1999), Montreal (2001), Santa Margherita Ligure (2003), Charleston (2005), Vienna (2007), Paris (2009) and Shanghai (2011). 

In 2014, Prof. Christos Georgakis revived the meeting series by hosting the Symposium on Dynamics and Aerodynamics of Cables (SDAC) at the Technical University of Denmark. The event was followed by the First International Symposium on the Dynamics and Aerodynamics of Cables (ISDAC) at the University of Porto, chaired by Prof. Elsa de Sà Caetano, in 2017.  

We at the UiS are proud to host the second in the new series of the symposia, ISDAC 2020. The international topic of cable vibrations is highly relevant to the operation and design of slender structures in the challenging environment in Norway.  It gives us additional motivation to arrange the symposium as an active forum for discussions and dissemination of the research.

On behalf of the Organising Committee, I invite your contributions to this event and look forward to welcoming you in Stavanger. 

Due to travel restrictions related to the outbreak of the corona virus the symposium, originally planned for 2020, has been postponed to 2021.
