CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS

The conference proceedings (camera ready format) which will be
available on the first day of the conference will be published by
Civil-Comp Press. A selection of papers will also be published in
special issues of Computers & Structures and Advances in Engineering
Software. The procedure for submitting papers for these journal
special issues will be available at the conference.

CONFERENCE VENUE

The year 2000 is the 575th anniversary of the University of
Leuven. The venue for the conference is the Faculty Club, Groot
Begijnhof 14-15, B-3000, Leuven, Belgium. The Faculty Club is located

picturesque 13th century houses. Some of the meeting rooms are located
in the House of Chihvres, another nearby historic building. The venue
is a 30 minute train journey from Brussels or a 15 minute car drive
from Brussels airport or the City of Brussels.

CONFERENCE FEES

The conference registration fees include: the camera ready conference
proceedings (Civil-Comp Press), morning coffee, lunch and afternoon
tea for all three days of the conference. The conference dinner on the
evening of Thursday 7th September 2000 is also included in the
fee. The author/student fee is 380 UK Pounds and the delegate fee is
