We are pleased to invite you for a contribution to the aims and scopes of the Special Issue "Traditional and Innovative Approaches in Seismic Design".
The idea of this Special Issues focused on earthquake engineering topics emerged during the "1st International Workshop Traditional and Innovative Approaches in Seismic Design" in 2016 (TIASD 2016), where lectures and master students from different European countries met at the Technical University of Munich. This initiative was funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) in 2016 and the support has been confirmed for 2017. For the 2017 edition of the workshop, which will be held in Pisa, 16–18 March, we are happy to publish the contributions of the lecturers through a Special Issue of Buildings, in order to share the knowledge gained during the workshop. Moreover, we open the call for contributions to all interested scientists and experts, in order to cover a wider range of topics and bring the discussion beyond the walls of the workshop classrooms. The contributions will be published along with the workshop lectures and will offer an instrument of knowledge in the earthquake engineering field for new and existing structures.
