Chairmen's Message

This highly successful bi-annual Conference brings the intellectual creativity and the art and science of protective engineering practised/espoused by eminent scientists, engineers, practitioners and safety/security experts to the forefront of a borderless world. The object is to understand the physics, mechanics of engineering and other natural phenomenon so that mitigation principles can be developed to reduce the inherent devastating effects. Advanced technology and knowledge are important elements to defeat acts of terrorism and other natural occurrences. This conference was inaugurated in January 1996 in Singapore and had been held successfully in Australia, China, Japan and Canada. After a successful 11th Conference in Ottawa in 2015 under the direction of Prof Murat Saatcioglu of the University of Ottawa and Emeritus Chairman A/Prof Tat-Seng Lok of Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, the Conference is now organised in Singapore but jointly hosted by Kanazawa University and the National Defence Academy of Japan. The conference addresses important advances in threat and risk assessment, characteristics of shock and blast loads on structures, infrastructure protection against natural and man-made hazards, and new and innovative mitigation measures against extreme events such as Tsunamis, ground shock and other phenomenon. It is also a gathering of people with common interests to reflect on contributions to defence technology and self-defence management and logistics. We welcome your participation in Singapore in June 2017.
