MCEER/CSEE is well-represented at the 15th World Conference on Earthquake Engineering (15WCEE), held in Lisbon, Portugal from September 24-28, 2012. Sixteen papers and/or posters by MCEER-affiliated authors associated with the University at Buffalo’s Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering (CSEE) showcase recent research on a wide variety of topics including seismic protective systems, bridges and highways, community resilience, critical lifelines, and nonstructural components. A list of papers and poster presentations, grouped by MCEER research thrust areas, is provided below.

Videos from recent MCEER and UB-NEES research projects conducted at the University at Buffalo's Structural Engineering and Earthquake Simulation Laboratory (SEESL), a node of the Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES), are on display at Booth 76 in the Exhibition Hall.
