Welcome to the website of the 13th Nordic Steel Construction Conference, 23-25 September 2015
The Nordic Steel Construction Conference (NSCC) is a conference with proud traditions. The conference was held for the first time in Stockholm in 1970 and since then with about three years apart it has circulated between the Nordic countries. The last conference was held in Oslo in 2012 and gathered scientists, representatives of steel producers, steel wholesalers, contractors, consultants, architects, etc. Finland is responsible for the event in 2015.
The last time the conference was organized in Finland was in 2001. The organizer was the Finnish Constructional Steelwork Association (FCSA) with together Helsinki University of Technology (HUT). Now the baton once again has come to Finland. Also this time FCSA will be responsible for the administrative part of the event. This time Tampere University of Technology (TUT) takes the response of the scientific process.
The scientific process will be led by Professor Markku Heinisuo, TUT, as chairman of the Scientific Committee and with Associate Professor Jari Mäkinen, TUT, as vice chairman. The Scientific Committee is composed of leading steel professors and researchers from the Nordic countries and the rest of Europe.
It is a great pleasure for the Finnish Constructional Steelwork Association and the Tampere University of Technology to invite you to the 13:th Nordic Steel Construction Conference in Tampere on September 23-25, 2015. The conference will be held at Tampere Hall, located in the heart of Tampere city centre. Tampere Hall is Scandinavia’s largest Congress and Concert Centre.
