The Asian Pacific Network of Centers for Earthquake Engineering Research (ANCER) held its annual meeting in Jeju, Korea from November 10-13, 2005. The theme of the 2005 ANCER Annual Meeting was “Earthquake Hazard Reduction through Networked Information and Sensor Technology: Global Human Links for Next Generation Earthquake Engineering.” Two members of the MCEER Student Leadership Council (SLC) attended the meeting, along with a number of MCEER investigators. Gian Paolo Cimellaro and Michael Pollino from the University at Buffalo presented results of their respective ongoing research on earthquake engineering. Gian Paolo presented “Seismic Resilience of a Health Care Facility” (Cimellaro, G., Reinhorn, A., and Bruneau, M.) while Michael presented “Controlled Rocking Approach for the Seismic Resistance of Structures” (Pollino, M. and Bruneau, M.).
