The 2004 Annual Meeting of the Asian Pacific Network of Centers for Earthquake Engineering Research (ANCER), was held July 29-30, 2004 in Honolulu, Hawaii. The meeting was sponsored by ANCER, and organized by MCEER, with partial funding from the National Science Foundation.

The theme of the meeting was 'Networking of Young Earthquake Engineering Researchers and Professionals.' Member Centers sent delegations that included young researchers/ professionals (upper level undergraduates, graduate students, post docs and/or other professionals with less than 5 years work experience) together with senior members (directors, their designees and other researchers/professionals). Over 75 people attended the meeting.

The meeting began with presentations by the Center directors explaining activities underway at their respective Centers. These were followed by the technical presentations, grouped into six theme areas:

An ANCER board meeting was also held during the conference to review the current state of ANCER and formulate a work plan and priority list for the upcoming year.
