Seismic Resilience 25 Years after Northridge: Accomplishments & Challenges” will feature the role of multi-disciplinary performance-based engineering with seismic and related natural hazards to achieve community resiliency. The meeting will open on Thursday, January 17, with plenary sessions highlighting the role of PEER research in the fields of performance-based engineering and resilience, and to identify areas where research and development of technology and tools are needed for effective decision-making. On Friday, January 18, concurrent breakout sessions will be formatted for more detailed discussion and engagement of PEER-funded researchers and projects, with the goal of creating a synergy of resources and information.

Decision-making stakeholders, practicing professionals, researchers, faculty, students, and others interested in the practice of performance-based engineering for natural hazards are encouraged to attend.

Poster Presenters – application deadline Friday, November 30, 2018, 5pm, PST. Acceptance notifications will be issued by December 6, 2018.

Emerging researchers and students are encouraged to apply to participate in the poster session – refer to Poster Registration page. All accepted posters will be displayed during the PEER poster session on the evening of Thursday, January 18
