ICOSSAR2009 The 10 th International Conference on Structural Safety and Reliability (ICOSSAR'09) will begin on Sunday 13 September 2009 with a welcome reception in the Senriyama Campus of the Kansai University and continue from Monday 14 to Thursday 17 on the Senriyama Campus of the Kansai University. Background and Objective ICOSSAR2009 aims to bring together scientists, educators, researchers and practitioners for a better understanding and management of safety and reliability of structures and civil engineering systems, with special focus on advanced technologies, analytical and computational methods of risk analysis, probability based design and regulations, smart systems and materials, life cycle cost analysis, damage assessment, social aspects, urban planning, and commercial applications. Held every four years in different countries, ICOSSAR is the premier international forum for the exchange of information and discussion on recent developments, in structural safety/reliability and stochastic mechanics, and innovative applications. ICOSSAR2009 will follow this long tradition.
