RAPID poster session 2012
The Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) is organizing, at the direction of the National Science Foundation (NSF), a research needs workshop for recipients of Japan and New Zealand RAPID awards. The workshop will be organized so that recipients: 1) share some of the initial findings from their research projects; 2) have the opportunity to interact and collaborate with other event researchers from a broad range of disciplines; and 3) provide NSF with solid recommendations for emerging research themes, opportunities, and needs.
The RAPID Awardees Workshop is scheduled for February 9th and 10th at the NSF headquarters in Arlington, Virginia.
The workshop includes short oral and poster presentations on all RAPID award projects, followed by discipline, cross-discipline and themed breakout discussions to develop recommendations for major research themes and opportunities as they emerge from the investigations of the Japan and New Zealand earthquakes and their impacts.
A report summarizing emerging research themes will be delivered to NSF and published on the EERI Japan and New Zealand Earthquake Clearinghouse websites, as well as disseminated as broadly as possible to interested research, recovery, and reconstruction communities.
There are approximately 50 RAPID awards total for New Zealand and Japan. In addition approximately 16 Japanese researchers with J-RAPID awards will be participating as well as several researchers from New Zealand.
Each RAPID project will be preparing a poster which will be shared through this online platform, and available at the workshop for viewing there.
You can view and contribute posters to this collection at the link below. The posters that you upload will be converted into a special web-viewable format. Before you begin the upload process, save your poster into a PDF format - the simpler the document is the better. The more complex gradients and shapes might cause the system the not be able to make your poster fully interactive - in which case a non-interactive jpeg image will be created instead. The conversion process will be run every few days overnight - with all posters viewable by the date of the workshop.
