Registration for the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) is open! The meeting will be held February 12-15, 2013, at the Grand Hyatt Seattle, Washington. With the theme “Building Resilient Communities through Policy and Mitigation,” the meeting has much to offer engineers, scientists, emergency managers, and policy makers, highlighting earthquake policy issues while also offering insights from researchers and practitioners from around the country. Two pre-meeting half-day workshops will be held February 12: “The Canterbury Earthquakes—Lessons and Implications for Regions Worldwide” and a FEMA Training on “P-807, Guidelines for Seismic Retrofit of Weak-Story Wood-Framed Buildings.” Three optional technical tours are scheduled for Friday, February 15: Preserving and Protecting Historic Buildings in Seattle, Innovations in Earthquake Engineering, and Geologic Hazards in Seattle. More information about all of these events can be found on the 2013 EERI Annual meeting website.
The regular registration deadline has been extended to January 18!
