Workshop 2 : Non-synoptic Winds
Title 1 : Non-synoptic Winds and Impacts on Civil Engineering Structures
Non-synoptic winds such as tornadoes and downbursts are increasingly becoming a research hot spot in the field of wind engineering. Tornadoes and downbursts have moved through densely populated areas in central and eastern China in recent years. The sudden and high-speed winds caused by tornadoes and downbursts are distinct from typical synoptic wind fields and can cause serious damage to surface structures. However, due to the limited observation data in tornadoes and downbursts, the difficulties in reproducing their flow fields in experiments and numerical simulations, and the complexities in their impacts on civil engineering structures, we are still lack of relevant information on non-synoptic winds.
Therefore, this workshop aims to bring together the research accomplishments provided by researchers from academia and industry. The other goal is to show the latest research in the field of non-synoptic winds and understand how to develop the design code to prevent the urban key structures from being destroyed by non-synoptic winds. We encourage prospective authors to submit related distinguished research papers on the subject. Please name the title of the submission email with “paper title_workshp title”.

Workshop 3 : Digital Geoengineering and Geoscience
Title：Machine Learning & Data-driven Models in Geosciences and Geoengineering
In recent years, we have entered the so-called Fourth Paradigm in which observational data is threatening to overwhelm scientists. Big data is characterized by the rule of the five Vs: Volume of data, their Variety, Velocity, Value and Veracity. The concept of big data naturally agree well with the geoscience. This understanding will come through the analysis of increasingly large geo-datasets and from computationally intensive simulations. Large-scale, comprehensive, multidirectional and multifield geotechnical monitoring is becoming a reality in the very near future. Geo-scientists and engineers are faced with the challenge of extracting as much useful information as possible and gaining new insights from these data, simulations, and interplay between the two. The in-depth analysis capabilities such as correction analysis, casual analysis, decision support as well as the rapidly evolving field of machine learning will become the core works in the era of big data. Furthermore, the site monitoring will be promoted to the same or even more important role as the experiment, theoretical analysis and numerical simulation. On the other hand, scientific geoscience data, and the processes used to analyze it, may differ substantially from those encountered with big data in other fields. Therefore, the geotechnical and geological researchers should pay more attention to big data research, enhancing the use of research results of big data from other disciplines to promote the Advances in Machine learning & data-driven models in geosciences and geoengineering.

One of the biggest challenges is the design of sustainable underground space and the exploration of how tunneling can help address the problems of urban sprawl, traffic congestion and pollution that have threatened the prospects of biodiversity, livability and general well-being of the inhabitants. Underground space is an important potential resource, where effective utilization of urban underground space can perfect the urban comprehensive function.
The growing need for underground space in urban areas as an alternative to surface alignments, for space under existing surface structures. It is particularly important that people involved in the design and development of underground space should work together and exchange their experiences to promote the development and use of more underground facilities. In addition, technological development aimed at facilitating more risk-free underground construction must be pursued.

Engineering structures are under the threat of different sources of hazards, e.g. earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, blast loads, etc., which may cause damage and even failure of the structures. To quantify the damage extent and ensure structural safety, it is of great importance to develop reliable damage analysis and/or performance assessment methods, which should also account for different sources of uncertainties, as they will have a significant effect on the final results. Up to date, there are two major families of methods in this field, i.e., mechanics-driven and data-driven. Mechanics-driven approaches have a solid physical background while data-driven approaches are more rapid and robust. To take full advantage of both approaches, it is also popular to combine them for a better solution. The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers and engineers to present, discuss and exchange the latest developments in relevant fields. Fundamental researches and practical applications are both welcome.

Workshop 27: Disproportionate Collapse of Building Structures
Title: Mitigation of Progressive/Disproportionate Collapse of Building Structures
During the service life, a building structure is susceptible to local damage induced by some extreme events, for example, explosion, impact, fire, and so on. If the structure lacks sufficient robustness and integrity, the local damage would spread widely, finally leading to a complete collapse or a large-scale failure disproportionate to the initial local damage, which is defined as the progressive collapse of building structures. Despite the low possibility of such events, once happened, it would bring about heavy personnel casualties, substantial loss of property, and very negative social influence. With the occurrence of three well-known collapse events, including the Ronan Point apartment in London in 1968, the Alfred P. Murrah office building in Oklahoma in 1995, and the World Trade Center in New York in 2001, scholars worldwide gradually realized the significance of the robustness of building structures against progressive collapse and conducted research studies on the resistance of remaining structures to mobilize alternate load path and develop catenary action or membrane action, to bridge over lost structural members. Measures to mitigate the progressive collapse of building structures were also investigated during the past decades. Therefore, the main objectives of the current topic include a) robustness of building structures against progressive collapse; b) measures to mitigate progressive collapse. All types of buildings, including concrete, steel, and composite structures are welcome.

Urban renewal is not only a necessary process from incremental planning to stock planning, but also a symbol of China's strength and progress. Urban renewal has the characteristics of individuality, diversity and complexity. Industrial heritage is a special asset and resource in urban culture, as well as the product of new China's industrial civilization era, which has the value of historical research, cultural heritage and reuse. Its architectural style and spatial structure are quite different from that of modern industry, giving young people different experiences and feelings. At present, with the rapid renewal of cities, local governments pay far less attention to the protection and reuse of industrial heritage, and even serious damage occurs. Therefore, how to better protect the industrial heritage under the background of urban renewal, and give full play to its due historical, social and use value, become a problem we need to focus on.

Title: Carbon negative construction materials and structures
A new interest on sustainable materials for structural applications is being raised around the world, owing to a series of severe challenges (e.g., energetic crisis, environmental pollution, resource depletion, etc) and their resulting regulations. On the other hand, the choice of structural materials can have a significant effect on the global environment (i.e., the greenhouse effect). Both wood and bamboo can absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as they grow. The net accumulation of carbon in the atmosphere is generally 5.5 ton of carbon per hectare (tCO2/ha) approximately for European forestry. Besides, both wood and bamboo structures can storage carbon for many years. Due to the excellent strength-to-weight ratios, ideal thermal insulating and acoustical properties, wood is suitable for different kinds of applications as structural beams and columns, insulating envelopes, shear walls, flooring materials, etc. In comparison to wood, bamboo’s history being used as structural materials can be traced back even further, making bamboo indispensable in human life. This workshop aims to discuss the latest research results for wood and bamboo materials and structures.

The ability of ECC to self-control crack expansion prevents the penetration of water and harmful ions, thereby effectively contributing to its durability and sustainability comparing to ordinary concrete, and broadening its applications in new construction projects and rehabilitation projects.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together the research accomplishments provided by researchers from academia and the industry. The other goal is to show the latest research results in the field of strain-hardening fiber-reinforced cementitious composite. We encourage prospective authors to submit related distinguished research papers on the following subjects: high temperature resistance, permeability resistance, frost and salt corrosion resistance, shrinkage resistance, abrasion resistance, fatigue resistance and etc.Please name the title of the submission email with “paper title_workshp.

Workshop 42: Advanced AI and IoT applications in the Construction Industry
Smart non-intrusive construction process monitoring and management using AIoT
Keywords: Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Smart Construction, Project Management
Today two emerging trends that are dominating the smart construction industry are the Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT). But these two technologies are much more than the buzzwords or academic topics for the digital transformation in the conventional sector. The convergence of AI and IoT will reinvent the future of the architecture, engineering, construction, operation, and maintenance industry. Here, IoT plays the role as a digital nervous system, meanwhile AI becomes the brain that makes intelligent decisions to monitor and control the overall construction process. The lethal combination brings us an era of connected and smart things where construction factors (e.g., manpower, equipment, and materials) are capable of self-correcting, self-healing, and self-enhancing.
As AI and IoT technologies are slowly but surely creeping into the field sites across the world, it is exciting to think of the many opportunities that new, automated, and smart products and services provide to the stake holders of the construction industry in this workshop. We encourage talents to submit related insightful research paper on this subject.

A number of welded steel structures cracked in a brittle mode and even led to collapse of whole structures during the 1994 Northridge Earthquake and the 1995 Kobe Earthquake. The failure mechanism involves cyclic plasticity, non-homogeneous metal materials, geometrical nonlinearity and also discontinuity of solids. The failure mechanism is very complicated and multi-scale methodology from a mesoscopic view provides a powerful approach to solve the problem.
The aim of this workshop is to stimulate communication of young researchers and engineers in this field, and share valuable innovative ideas from both academia and the industry. The other goal is to show the latest research results in the field of multi-scale study of metallic structures. We encourage prospective authors to submit related distinguished research papers on this topic. Please name the title of the submission email with “paper title_workshp title“.
