MCEER students Mettupalayam Sivaselvan and Diego Lopez Garcia, from the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering at the University at Buffalo, were among those who attended a Symposium in Honor of Professors Ray Clough and Joseph Penzien at the University of California, Berkeley. The Symposium was held on May 10-11, and was organized by CUREE (Consortium of Universities for Research in Earthquake Engineering). The organizers applied for and obtained a grant from the National Science Foundation to support attendance of doctoral students and junior faculty from U.S. universities through travel grants. Around 50 Ph.D. students and junior faculty were selected to attend the symposium.
