Second National Seismic Conference on Bridges and Highways
The Federal Highway Administration and the California
Department of Transportation are hosting the Second National
Seismic Conference on Highways and Bridges in Sacramento,
California on July 8-11, 1997. The objective is to provide a national
forum for the exchange of information on current practice and
research for seismic design and retrofit of new and existing bridges.
Although the main focus is national, an International Forum will
feature invited speakers from countries which have implemented
advanced earthquake mitigation technologies. To register,
contact Barbara Murdock, Henderson Associates, 1000 Vermont Ave.
NW, 6th Floor, Washington, DC 20005; phone: (202) 682-3739;
fax: (202) 682-2535.
