ANCER Conference on Advances in Earthquake Engineering Research
The Asian-Pacific Network of Centers for Earthquake Engineering Research (ANCER) has scheduled its first major meeting, International Conference on Advances and New Challenges in Earthquake Engineering Research, August 15-20, 2002. This conference is dedicated to the late Professor Liu Huixian, and will consist of two consecutive meetings in Harbin and Hong Kong, China.
The Harbin component of the conference, hosted by the Institute of Engineering Mechanics, China Seismological Bureau (IEM, CSB), scheduled for August 15-17, 2002, will focus on new challenges and innovative solutions in earthquake engineering.
The Hong Kong conference component, hosted by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (HK Poly U), scheduled for August 19-20, 2002, will emphasize problems that concern areas of moderate seismicity and intelligent infrastructure engineering. Research in the development and application of advanced technologies will be the common underpinning of both meetings.
