Welcome on SDSS 2019 website.
The series of International Colloquia on Stability and Ductility of Steel Structures have been supported by the Structural Stability Research Council (SSRC) for more than forty years and its objective is to present the progress in theoretical, numerical and experimental research in the field of stability and ductility of steel and steel-concrete composite structures. Special emphasis is laid on new concepts and procedures concerning the analysis and design of steel structures and on the background, development and application of rules and recommendations either appearing in recently published Codes or Specifications or about to be included in their upcoming versions. This International Colloquium series started in 1972 in Paris and its subsequent editions took place in different cities with the last five being held in: Timisoara, Romania (1999), Budapest, Hungary (2002), Lisbon, Portugal (2006), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2010) and Timisoara, Romania (2016).
The 2019 edition of SDSS is organized by the Czech Technical University in Prague. The university held the second edition of the Eurosteel conference in 1999 and the first three editions of Applications of Structural Fire Engineering (ASFE) conference (2009, 2011 and 2013).
It is our pleasure to invite you to Prague again for the International Colloquium at the beginning of September 2019.
