The Asia-Pacific Young Reserachers and Graduates Symposium (YRGS) series is primarily a platform for early-stage structural engineering professors, research scientists, professional engineers, postdoctoral fellows and PhD students to present their latest findings within the context of the wider structural engineering discipline. The series was initiated to promote collaboration and knowledge sharing among the young professionals.

The symposium features oral presentations predominantly form early-career structural engineering people but also includes talks form leading figures in the field. It provides an opportunity for learning about future career paths and networking with fellow researchers. One of the valuable merits of attending YRGS is the opportunity to network with a wide range of structural engineering reserachers from the Asia-Pacific regions to develop collaboration and friendship.

The first YRGS was held at Kunsan National University, Korea in 2009. The second in 2010 at Zhejiang University, China; the third in 2011 at National Taiwan University, Taiwan; the fourth in 2012 at Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong; and the fifth in 2013 at Malaviya National Institute of Technology Jaipur, India.
