NEES and MCEER Team UP for Quake Summit 2011
NEES and MCEER Team UP for Quake Summit 2011 – Joint Annual Meeting, June 9-11, 2011
Quake Summit 2011 - Earthquake & Multi-Hazards Resilience: Progress and Challenges, will be held June 9-11, 2011 in Buffalo, NY. The meeting, a combination of the annual meetings of the George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) and MCEER (formerly the Multidisciplinary Center for Earthquake Engineering Research), will feature nearly 100 presentations on the latest research in earthquake engineering and multi-hazards resilience designed to engage researchers, students and practitioners.
The technical program opens with an opening plenary session on Thursday evening, June 9, that will examine the Christchurch, New Zealand Earthquake of February 21, 2011, and the Offshore Honshu Japan Earthquake & Tsunami of March 11, 2011. In addition to as many as 20 technical sessions, a student symposium and poster session will be hosted for graduate students, and a practitioner symposium will concentrate on changes to the seismic provisions of ASCE/SEI 7-10. The meeting will culminate with an optional tour of the test facilities at Taylor Devices Inc. and UB/MCEER’s Experimental Campus for Large Infrastructure Protection, Sustainability and Enhancement – ECLIPSE Campus.
