Both performance-based structural engineering and life-cycle structural engineering are important areas of structural engineering research; they have also been gaining gradual acceptance in structural engineering practice. This conference series is launched to provide an international forum for scientific exchanges in both areas and their interaction. In particular, performance-based life-cycle structural engineering, based on a full integration of the two areas, offers an exciting new direction for structural engineering within the context of sustainable urban development.
