14th Shock & Impact Loads on Structures (2021)
3 - 5 Nov 2021 Singapore
On behalf of the Organising Committee, we welcome you to join us in Singapore from 3 – 5 November 2021 to attend this regular bi-annual event of SI21.
This Conference provides you with opportunities to share common interests in the latest research and development into the effects of shock and impact on structures, blast protection practice and recent topics that influence protective security around the world.
Singapore, a congenial location where the East meets the West, is situated in vibrant South East Asia. Nestled amongst the dynamic neighbouring countries of ASEAN, it is one of the fastest growing economies following the recent worldwide pandemic. With a diverse population and culture of over 5.5 million inhabitants, you will find everything you need in an area of about 720 km2. The Singapore metropolis is a modern city filled with vibrancy of the East and West – a fusion that encompasses the best of everything that the world has to offer.
The Conference Committee welcomes your active participation in sharing knowledge and ideas that make this an event to remember in a new normal post-pandemic world. The warmth and hospitality is here to serve all participants.
We look forward to seeing you in Singapore in November 2021.
