The Blast Impact and Survivability Research Unit (BISRU) of the
University of Cape Town has been given the privilege to host the 4th
International Conference on Impact Loading of Lightweight Structures.

The conference is planned to be a forum for scientists and engineers,
from all over the world, to exchange ideas and experience on the
behaviour, modelling, safety and design of light-weight structures with
respect to high strain rate loading – and impact and blast loading in
particular. The list of topics includes but not limited to material
characterisation, structural failure and crash worthiness, energy
absorbing systems, experimental techniques, theoretical models and
numerical analysis; each providing information on the design of modern,
lightweight structures and contributing to a safer world.


The conference will be hosted at The One and Only Hotel, at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town from 12-16 January 2014. More information may be found at


Abstracts of 2-4 pages must be submitted via the website by 28 June 2013.
