The first KEERC-MCEER Joint Seminar on Contributions to Earthquake Engineering was held in Buffalo, New York on July 30 – August 1, 2002. It was sponsored by the Korea Science and Engineering Foundation, National Science Foundation, Brain Korea 21, and MCEER.
Presentations focused on the development and application of advanced technology in earthquake hazard mitigation and response. Graduate students from both Centers (MCEER and the Korea Earthquake Engineering Research Center-KEERC) presented research work to their peers as well as to professionals in earthquake engineering research. Twelve students from each country made presentations, and an underlying goal of the workshop was to provide an opportunity for these young professionals to become acquainted with their peers, to strengthen the bond between U.S. and Korean researchers in earthquake-related studies.
The proceedings are currently being compiled and will be available from KEERC in the near future.
