The theory and analysis of shells, including:
  • linear and nonlinear theory;
  • constitutive laws;
  • shells and plates with internal microstructure;
  • hybrid and branched structures;
  • beam - shell interaction;
  • stability, dynamics, optimization, reliability, sensitivity, limit load analysis etc.
Numerical analysis of shell structures and elements, including:

Design and maintenance of shell structures, including:
  • industrial applications in civil, power, mining and mechanical engineering, as well as in automotive, shipbuilding, aerospace and chemical processing industries;
  • shell design codes and procedures (e.g. Eurocode);
  • case studies of various shell structures and failure problems.


  • The Conference program will include general lectures and contributed papers presented as lectures.
  • All the contribution abstracts (2 pages) will be rigorously reviewed prior to acceptance. The accepted abstracts will be included in the Conference book of abstracts, which will be available for the participants at the registration desk. Full length manuscripts of the selected papers will be further considered for publication in a special volume of a recognized technical journal. More details to this end will be given in the second announcement.
  • An exhibition related to the Conference themes provided by contractors, system manufacturers and consultants will be organized during the event.
  • The Conference venue will be the comfortable hotel “Neptun” located in the attractive leisure region of the Hel Peninsula at the Baltic Sea (see the enclosed booklet).
