The Cold-Formed Steel Research Consortium (CFSRC) announces the CFSRC Colloquium, a new global cold-formed steel (CFS) conference, will be held October 20-21, 2020 online. The colloquium will benefit researchers, professionals and students interested in CFS structural engineering and related topics.
CFSRC Colloquium will consist of full online proceedings. Sessions will be aligned with different times of the day to accommodate global participants. Additional opportunities for participants to share ideas are being planned.
Abstract submittals are closed at this time. CFSRC plans to send out abstract acceptances by the end of July 2020, along with final registration details.
Formal registration will begin in August 2020. An attendance record will be provided to document attendees’ continuing education.
The CFSRC is a multi-institution shared-use platform for conducting research on CFS structures. CFSRC spans 11 universities in North America through both its member universities and affiliated investigators.
CFSRC uses its team of researchers in cooperation with industry partners to develop a long-term vision of CFS research compatible with larger-scale funding initiatives and society-level priorities.
