TRUSS researchers participated at the Symposium titled “TRUSS, A Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network in Structural Safety”, held as part of the 27th edition of the ESREL (European Safety and Reliability) conference series in Portoroz (Slovenia) from 18th to 22nd June 2017. TRUSS was featured in Room Europa D of Grand Hotel Bernardin on Tuesday 20th from 15:40 to 17:20 and on Wednesday 21st from 14:00 to 17:40.

About 700 professionals were registered to the conference. More than 640 abstracts were submitted to ESREL 2017, which were followed by more than 480 papers. Following review by the technical programme committee consisting of 122 members, 455 papers were selected for publication and presentation at the conference. Amongst them, the following papers were selected to be presented by ESRs within the TRUSS symposium:

The TRUSS symposium was chaired by the project coordinator, Arturo Gonzalez. Each presentation was allocated 15 minutes, with an additional 5 minutes for discussion. Other TRUSS researchers at the symposium included Luis Costas from Equipos Nucleares (ESR3 supervisor), Maria Nogal from Trinity College Dublin (ESR4 co-supervisor), Frank Schoefs from Universite de Nantes (ESR8 co-supervisor), Rasa Remenyte-Prescott and John Andrews from University of Nottingham (ESR9 supervisors), Joan Ramon Casas from University Politecnica Catalunya (ESR10 and ESR11 supervisor) and Eugene OBrien from University College Dublin (ESR7, ESR8 and ESR12 supervisor).

Safety and Reliability – Theory and Applications is a book edited by Marko Cepin and Radim Bris that contains the contributions presented at the 27th European Safety and Reliability Conference (ESREL 2017, Portorož, Slovenia, June 18-22, 2017).
