Beginning with the Spring 2004 issue, the MCEER Bulletin had been updated to better communicate our vision to help establish earthquake resilient communities. Featured in this issue is the first message from our new director, Michel Bruneau, and an introduction to our new management team: Andre Filiatrault, Deputy Director, George C. Lee, Special Tasks Director, Thomas Anderson, Strategic Operations Director and Makola Abdullah, Diversity Program Director. Our 2004 Annual Meeting, held in Los Angeles, brought MCEER researchers, industry advisory board members and students together with architects, engineers, planners, owners, emergency managers, policy makers and public officials to explore ways to work together to achieve earthquake resilient communities. An updated Partners Insert, that includes profiles of four new Premier Partners, is also part of the package.
This issue also covers international bridge workshops between the US and both China and Japan, a Tri-Center meeting on geographically distributed systems, and the ATC-29-2 Seminar, which featured MCEER research on nonstructural components. Articles on remote sensing technology and its use after the Bam, Iran earthquake focus on an exciting new technology.
Regular columns on the Highway Project, industry partners, student activities and opportunities, the UB-MCEER-EERI seminar series, and recently published MCEER reports remain an important part of the updated Bulletin. We hope you like it.
