Because we need more and more accurate modeling of structures and hazards we decided to place this new edition under the auspices of optimization on one hand and of one of the most challenging hazard on the other hand: earthquake.

We have also the great opportunity to mutualize our event and the last VeRCoRs workshop that will be held from the 27th to the 31st of August. This will bring the participants the possibility to take benefit of the synthesis of the benchmark and a of a visit of the mock-up.

We encourage strongly researchers as well as industrial practioners to attend TINCE Conference as this event is devoted to be a place of exchange of knowledge and innovation coming from every corner of the civil engineering landscape.

Once again we invite PhD candidates to participate and present their work during the PhD Award session.


For this edition we are happy to be strongly supported by CEA and the SEISM Institute. Nothing would also be possible without the strong support of our academic partners: ENS Paris Saclay and ESTP Paris that is the historical co-founder of the event.

Last but not least, all our acknowledgements are going to EDF that is generously hosting the conference at EDF Lab Paris Saclay.

We look forward sincerely to welcoming you in Paris-Saclay for the 4th edition of TINCE – 29 to 31th August 2018.

Guillaume HERVE-SECOURGEON - TINCE 2018 Chairman
