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.
Early Bird registration ends December 15.
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 tsunami and various geohazards.
Emerging researchers and students are encouraged to participate in the poster session which will be held in the Great Hall at the International House Thursday evening.
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.
