The 2006 Annual Tri-Center Earthquake Engineering Symposium for Young Researchers was held August 10-13, 2006 in Sunriver, Oregon and organized by PEER. This year’s group was significantly larger, totaling thirty-four undergraduate students from MAE, MCEER, PEER, and newcomer NEES. All of the participants presented their research conducted during the 10-week long summer program, Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU).

MCEER sponsored nine REU students this summer. Seven completed their programs at the University at Buffalo (UB): Lisa Armbruster, Jesse Gotham, Jayce Grefrath, and Donald Taylor from UB; Alma Garcia from California Polytechnic State University; Tony Kim from Bradley University; and Sean Eosefow from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute; Kristn Denaye Hinds and Aaron Williams remained at their home institute, Florida State University, to conduct their research.

Symposium proceedings will be available from PEER.

For 2007, six positions are available in theResearch Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program and five are available in the MCEER REU Diversity Program.
