“Decision-Making in the Face of Uncertainty”

The 2016 PEER Annual Meeting will be hosted at the International House at the UC Berkeley campus on Thursday January 28 and Friday January 29, 2016. “Decision-Making in the Face of Uncertainty” 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 with plenary sessions highlighting the role of PEER research in the fields of performance-based engineering and resilience, with focus on buildings and infrastructure subjected to various geohazards and tsunami. On Friday, concurrent breakout sessions will be formatted for more detailed discussion and engagement to identify areas where research and development of technology and tools are needed for effective decision-making.

Decision-making stakeholders, practicing professionals, researchers, faculty, students and others interested in performance-based engineering are encouraged to attend.  PEER will release additional program details and online registration information in the near future.
