Institute of Advanced Sciences (IAS), Safety and Resilience of Infrastructure and Infrastructure Systems Unit held a 2017 Asia-Pacific-Euro Summer School on Smart Structures Technology (APESS) from 17th July to 4th August, 2017.

The summer school was organized under auspices of the Asian-Pacific Network of Centers for Research in Smart Structures Technology (ANCRiSST), and about 60 participants from 12 countries in Asia, Europe and North America participated in the event. The participants attended three-week activities consisting of lectures, technical visits, laboratory projects and cultural events. The lectures were delivered by over 30 experts in structural engineering, control and monitoring from the US, Japan, China, Korea, Italy and Denmark. The program also included technical visit to Shinjuku Mitsui Building Ultra-Large TMD and Kajima Technical Research Institute. Participants also work on laboratory projects of bridge inspection, bridge testing and structural evaluation using wireless vibration sensor and fiber optic sensor.

The 2017 APESS is the tenth edition of the summer school, with the first edition held in 2008 in KAIST South Korea and the last edition held in Cambridge University UK in 2016. In 2017, organization of this program was chaired by Distinguished YNU Professor Yozo Fujino of IAS, who has been leading the research of planning and management of infrastructure.

We would like to acknowledge the supports from ANCRiSST, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) 157th Committee on Structural Response Control, Japan Science and Technology Agency for through the Sakura Science Program, and International Strategy Organization of YNU.

The young participants are expected to become leaders in the field of civil engineering and structural engineering.
