Four MCEER SLC Members Participate in Tri-Center Field Mission to Greece

Michael Pollino and Daniel Fenz of the University at Buffalo, Swagata Banerjee of the University of California at Irvine and Marlon Hill of Florida A&M University have been selected to participate in the 2005 Post-Earthquake Reconnaissance EERC Field Mission Fellowship Program, which will take place in Greece. The participants will visit various earthquake engineering testing facilities and universities and will also engage in a hands-on field assessment exercise. The trip will begin in New York City, with a departure for Athens on July 5, and a return on July 13.

The MCEER SLC members will join their peers from the Mid-America Earthquake Center and the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center on the trip, which will be led by Dr. Reginald DesRoches from the MAE Center.

Participants will collaborate on a final group report and submit a presentation after they return. Past Field Missions have been held in Japan (2004), Italy (2003), and Taiwan (2002). More information about the program, which is sponsored by the three National Science Foundation Earthquake Engineering Research Centers, including MCEER Bulletin articles and webcast seminars of past trips, can be found online at

The Bulletin is a free publication offering articles on Center research, cooperative ventures, reports from conferences, educational activities, upcoming events, and reviews of new MCEER publications Spring 2005
