The 11th ASCCS conference was hosted by Tsinghua University, in Beijing, China, from December 3 to 5, 2015 and included over 113 papers from 18 countries.  The papers contained advances on the research, design and applications of steel-concrete composite structures. Several parallel sessions were established on composite beams/slabs, composite columns, composite joints/connections, composite walls/structural systems and composite bridges.

The Association of Steel and Concrete Composite Structures (ASCCS) was founded in Harbin in 1988 during the 2nd International Conference on Steel-Concrete Composite Structures, where Prof. S. T. Zhong (China), Prof. M. Tomii (Japan), Prof. M. J. N. Priestley (New Zealand) and Prof. J. G. Potyondy (Canada) jointly proposed to establish the association, aiming to promote the development of steel-concrete composite structures and to increase international cooperation in this area. The ASCCS conference series has been held every three years, in Harbin (1985, 1988, 2006), Fukuoka (1991), Kosice (1994), Innsbruck (1997), Los Angeles (2000), Sydney (2003), Leeds (2009) and Singapore (2012).  Professor Uy has served as the General Secretary of ASCCS since 2000.
