HPSM 2010 conference will address issues involving advanced types of structures, particularly those based on new concepts or new materials.
Presentations will highlight the latest developments in design, optimisation, manufacturing and experimentation within these areas.
The use of novel materials and new structural concepts nowadays is not restricted to highly technical areas like aerospace, aeronautical applications or the automotive industry, but also affects fields such as civil engineering and architecture as demonstrated in the proceedings of previous HPSM
conferences which were successfully held in Seville,
Spain in 2002; Ancona, Italy in 2004; Ostend,
Belgium in 2006; and the Algarve, Portugal in 2008.
