Guidelines for the Seismic Rehabilitation of Buildings

The Applied Technology Council, with co-sponsors the Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC) and the Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC), will conduct a seminar based on the document Guidelines for the Seismic Rehabilitation of Buildings on September 30, 1996, in Hawaii. The seminar is being held prior to the 1996 Annual SEAOC Convention and has been designed to complement the SEAOC Convention theme: "Performance Based Seismic Engineering: Today's Applications and Tomorrow's Directions." The purpose of the seminar is to provide a ?day tutorial on the document for practicing structural engineers and building officials. For additional information, or to register for the seminar, contact the Applied Technology Council, 555 Twin Dolphin Drive, Suite 550, Redwood City, California 94065, phone: (415) 595-1542; fax: (415) 593-2320; email: atc@atcouncil.org.

Workshop on Structural Reliability in Bridge Engineering

The Workshop on Structural Reliability in Bridge Engineering, funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and co-sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), will be held October 2-4, 1996, in Boulder, Colorado. For more information, contact either Professor Dan Frangopol, phone: (303) 492-7165; email: frangopo@spot.colorado.edu; Professor George Hearn, phone: (303) 492-6381; email: hearn@stripe.colorado.edu; or Mike Enright, phone: (303) 444-0460; email: enrightm@bechtel.colorado.edu.

Second International Workshop on Structural Control

The Second International Workshop on Structural Control, Next Generation of Intelligent Structures, will be held December 18-21, 1996 at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. It is sponsored by the International Association of Structural Control in conjunction with the Japan Panel on Structural Response Control and the U.S. Panel on Structural Control Research. The workshop will bring together engineers, scientists and others interested in the general field of response control and monitoring of buildings, bridges and other civil infrastructure systems. The workshop program will be structured so participants can make recommendations to promote international cooperation in sharing test facilities and experimental results. For registration information, contact Professor Jay Chen, Research Centre, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, phone: (852) 2358-1582 or -1334; email: IASCWS96@USTHK.UST.HK.

Call For Papers

Seismic Retrofit of Concrete Bridges

A technical session on Seismic Retrofit of Concrete Bridges in Regions of Moderate to High Seismicity will be held during the ACI Spring Convention, April 6-11, 1997 in Seattle, Washington. The session is sponsored by ACI Committee 341, Earthquake-Resistant Concrete Bridges.

Abstracts for presentations on findings based on field investigation, testing, and/or analysis of retrofitted concrete bridge components or systems to improve seismic performance are currently being solicited. Prospective authors should submit the following: paper title; author(s) full name, title, affiliation, address, telephone and fax numbers; presenting author's name; and abstracts between 200 and 300 words. Abstracts are due by September 30, 1996. Information should be sent to M. Saiid Saiidi, Civil Engineering Department (258), University of Nevada, Reno, NV 89557, phone: (702) 784-4839, fax: (702) 784-4466 or email: saiidi@scs.unr.edu.
