The 22nd International Conference on Structural Mechanics in Reactor Technology (SMiRT-22) will be held on August 18 – 23, 2013 in San Francisco. As a part of the program, SMiRT-22 will hold a Special Session on New Developments for Ground Motion Prediction for Stable Continental Regions on Friday, August 23, 2013, which will highlight PEER's NGA-East Program (Next Generation Attenuation Relationships for Central and Eastern North America).
This one-day special session is focused on the recent developments for ground motions in stable continental regions that draw on global seismic data for better and more up-to-date characterization of ground motion. This seismic ground motion hazard information will have important impacts on the seismic risk analyses currently underway by many utilities for beyond design-basis events.
SMiRT-22 is offering a special one-day registration for those who only want to attend this special session. Get the program and register by August 5th here!
