Welcome to the website of the 12:th Nordic Steel Construction Conference

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 Malmö in 2009 and gathered around 140 participants, of which about 90 scientists and the rest were representatives of steel producers, steel wholesalers, contractors, consultants, architects, etc. Norway is responsible for the event in 2012.

The last time the conference was organized in Norway was in 1998. Professor Per Kr. Larsen was the chairman, and the organizer was the Norwegian Steel Association, in cooperation with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). Now the baton once again has come to Norway. Also this time the Norwegian Steel Association will be responsible for the administrative part of the event.

The scientific process, as in 1998, will be led by Professor Per Kr. Larsen, NTNU, as chairman of the Technical Committee and with Dr. Ing Bjørn Aasen as vice chairman. The technical 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 Norwegian Steel Association and the University of Science and technology - NTNU to invite you to the 12:th Nordic Steel Construction Conference in Oslo on September 5-7, 2012. The conference will be held at Hotel Bristol, located in the heart of Oslo city centre. Hotel Bristol offers high standard conference facilities and accommodation as one of Oslo's most traditional hotels.

The conference will attract participants representing both academia and industry from all parts of the world and there will be presentation of papers covering different aspects related to steel construction. You will hear and see many interesting presentations given by Key Note speakers, distinguished professors as well as by young PhD-students.

As a representative for the organizing and technical committee I want to take this opportunity to invite you to participate in this exciting international conference in Oslo 5-7. September 2012. I hope to see you!

Professor Per Kr. Larsen, NTNU
