NEES 7th Annual Meeting

 

NEEShub Project Warehouse: Data Updates - June      NEES 7th Annual Meeting: Seismic Mitigation in a Flat World - June 23-25, 2009 - Honolulu, Hawaii  

 


Overview

The George E Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) 7th Annual Meeting will be held as part of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation (CMMI) Research and Innovation Conference: Research and Education in a Flat World. This will provide an excellent opportunity for the NEES community to interact with researchers from other sectors of the NSF CMMI Division and showcase the impact of NEES on seismic mitigation. The 7th Annual Meeting will provide an occasion for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to discuss NEES research past, present and future with a special focus on broadening and expanding our scope and impact.

Join us to hear the latest developments, to share your experiences and accomplishments, and to connect with peers from across the nation and around the world. The 7th Annual Meeting will be held at the Hawaii Convention Center and will feature high profile plenary sessions, informative breakout sessions, and extensive networking opportunities. Plenary session topics include:

  • NEES in a Multi-Hazard World will examine the role of NEES and the earthquake engineering community in researching the effects of a multi-hazard environment on engineered systems, and how these effects can be mitigated.
  • NEES Success Stories and Innovations will provide a highlight reel of significant contributions to the advancement of earthquake engineering research, cyberinfrastructure and education that would not have been possible without NEES.
  • NEES in a Flat World will highlight international NEES collaborations as well as independent international earthquake engineering research programs that complement NEES research.
  • NEES without Borders will build on the global theme by looking forward and focusing on the potential impact of NEES around the world.
  • NEES: Advancing Performance and Resiliency Worldwide will highlight current NEES research with the potential to significantly contribute to seismic resiliency.
  • Emerging Frontiers in Research will provide an interactive opportunity for attendees to discuss seismic research needs, innovative mitigation strategies and investigation methods with a panel of NEES researchers.
