ATC-17-2 Seminar on Response Modification Technologies 
for Performance-Based Seismic Engineering
First Announcement and Call for Abstracts

The Applied Technology Council (ATC) and MCEER are organizing the ATC-17-2 Seminar on Response Modification Technologies for Performance-Based Design, the third in a series of seminars first held in San Francisco in 1986. The seminar will focus on seismic isolation, energy dissipation, active and semi-active control systems, and the use of new materials in structural response modification. It will be held May 30-31, 2002 in Los Angeles. The purpose of the two-day seminar is to present a comprehensive picture of the state of practice and current research on response modification technologies for performance-based seismic design, including future directions. Themes and topics to be addressed include: 

The Seminar Steering Committee is seeking papers pertaining to the above themes and topics. Verbal presentations are planned but poster papers may also be included. Abstracts should be one page, typewritten (single spaced) and not more than 250 words. Please indicate in the upper right corner of the abstract the format of presentation preferred (verbal or poster). Abstracts should be submitted to: ATC-17-2 Project, Applied Technology Council, 555 Twin Dolphin Drive, Suite 550, Redwood City, CA 94065; fax: (650) 593-2320; email, The deadline is January 15, 2002.
