The scaled boundary finite element method (SBFEM) has been developed into a general-purpose numerical method since it was firstly proposed by Song and Wolf in 1996 for the solution of wave propagation problems. This method is semi-analytical and only the boundaries of the subdomains are discretized. Its advantages were firstly recognized for the modelling of problems involving unbounded media and singularities. Recently, a methodology for constructing arbitrary polygon/polyhedron elements for linear and nonlinear analyses was established based on the SBFEM. This development theoretically renders the range of application of the SBFEM as wide as that of the displacement-based finite element method. Today, the application of the SBFEM has been expanded to many other important fields in engineering, such as fluid mechanics, dam-reservoir-foundation interaction, electromagnetics, ultrasonic guided waves problem, fracture/damage problem, acoustics, seepage, electrostatics, linear and nonlinear geotechnical problems, sensitivity analysis and heat transfer, etc. However, great potential of the SBFEM in modelling 3D microstructures of concrete or composite materials, crack propagation, dynamic contact for cracks analysis, shell problems, dam-reservoir-foundation interaction, interaction of complex soil and pile foundation, large scale computing problem, fast mesh generation problem, moving boundary problems, etc. remains to be explored.
In order to summarize new developments, advances and applications of the scaled boundary finite element method and provide a floor for the mutual exchange of ideas on the SBFEM for the interested research all over the world, The First and Second Workshop on Recent Progress of the Scaled Boundary Finite Element Method (SBFEM2017 and SBFEM2018) have been successfully held in Hohai University, Nanjing on Nov. 5-7, 2017, and in Dalian University of Technology, Dalian on Nov. 3-5, 2018, respectively. The third workshop (SBFEM2019) continuing the previous and successful workshops will be held in Ningbo University on Nov. 29 - Dec. 1, 2019.
Over the years, research has refined the initial version of the method and one can identify the following salient topics under particularly intensive study:
l Solid and fracture mechanics
l Infinite domain problems
l Fluid-structure interaction
l Dam-reservoir-foundation interaction
l Heat transfer
l Shell structure analysis
l Combined experimental and numerical SBFEM methodologies
l Computer implementation aspects
l Novel formulations and applications

Tourist Information: Ningbo is in the middle section of the coastline of China and the southern wing of the Yangtze River Delta with an over-7000-years history. It is adjacent to Hangzhou and Shanghai connected by the longest sea-crossing bridge (Hangzhou Bay Bridge) in the world. It owns the biggest port (Ningbo-Zhoushan Port) in the world and the earliest private library building (Tianyi Pavilion) in China. It takes 2 hours from Shanghai to Ningbo, and 1 hour from Hangzhou to Ningbo by high-speed railway. For more information, please refer to the website: http://english.ningbo.gov.cn.
