ATC-SEI Conference Opens Early Registration
The challenges to improving the ability of existing buildings and other structures to withstand an earthquake are as broad and varied as the structures themselves. To learn about today’s best practices and how to apply them, consider attending Improving the Seismic Performance of Existing Buildings and Other Structures, to be held December 9-11, 2009 in San Francisco, California.
Four concurrent tracks of technical sessions will cover topics that include guidelines, standards and analysis improvements; new materials and innovative approaches; mitigation policy issues, strategies, and programs; and case study analysis. In addition, participants can earn up to 18 professional development hours. Beyond the technical study, the conference will include a black-tie gala, over 25 poster displays, and plenary and luncheon addresses by six experts.
The conference is organized by the Applied Technology Council (ATC) and ASCE’s Structural Engineering Institute (SEI). MCEER is one of the cooperating organizations. Early registration continues through September 30. For more information, visit http://www.atc-sei.org/.
