The 100th Anniversary Earthquake Conference will be held in San Francisco, California, April 18-22, 2006, under the theme “Managing Risk in Earthquake Country,” to commemorate the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. The conference will bring together EERI’s 8th U.S. National Conference on Earthquake Engineering (8NCEE), the Centennial Annual Meeting of the Seismological Society of America (SSA) and the annual Disaster Resistant California (DRC) Conference of the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services to celebrate a century of accomplishment in earth science, earthquake engineering and emergency management. The program will feature joint multidisciplinary plenary sessions, technical sessions, seminars, poster sessions, exhibits and field trips, and the three technical programs will be fully coordinated throughout the four days to optimize program content.
Abstract submissions will be accepted online for all three events, each of which has its own deadline and requirements as follows:
8NCEE: June 1, 2005
DRC: October 15, 2005
SSA: January 15, 2006
Guidelines and detailed instructions for all three events are available on the conference home page at http://www.1906eqconf.org.
