Welcome to SiF2022


The 12th International Conference on Structures in Fire (SiF 2022) will be hosted by PolyU in Hong Kong. The conference is organised by Department of Building Environment and Energy Engineering with the support from Faculty of Construction and Environment.

The main focus of the SiF series of conferences is to provide an opportunity for researchers, practitioners and engineers to share and discuss their research related to structures in fire with their peers in an open, international forum. Research should include fundamental work that progresses the understanding and application of performance based structural fire engineering as well as technological developments and case studies.

SiF2022 will adopt a hybrid mode including online and in-person presentation at PolyU for broader access and the registration fees of two tiers will be offered. As Hong Kong is gradually removing the travel quarantine requirement, there is a high chance to meet you all face to face in PolyU. We truly look forward to your submissions of papers and participation of SiF2022.
