Asian-Pacific Network of Centers for Earthquake Engineering Research (ANCER)


International Conference on Advances and New Challenges in Earthquake Engineering Research


August 15-20, 2002
Harbin and Hong Kong, China

In Honor of the Late Professor Liu Huixian

ANCER 2002

 


The International Conference on Advances and New Challenges in Earthquake Engineering Research, sponsored by Asian-Pacific Network of Centers for Earthquake Engineering Research (ANCER), will be held August 15-20, 2002. The Conference will consist of two consecutive back-to-back meetings in Harbin and Hong Kong, China. The Harbin component of the meeting, hosted by the Institute of Engineering Mechanics of China Seismological Bureau (IEM, CSB) on August 15-17, will focus on new phenomena of earthquake engineering and innovative solution approaches. The Hong Kong meeting component, hosted by Hong Kong Polytechnic University (HK Poly U) on August 19-20, will emphasize problems in areas of moderate seismicity and intelligent infrastructure engineering. Research in the development and application of advanced technologies will be the common underpinning of both meetings.

Important Dates

Submission of Abstracts:  March 31, 2002.

Submission of full-length paper:  Due at the Conference.


Proceedings

Two separate proceedings and session reports will be published after the Conference. Extended abstracts and available full-length papers will be distributed at the Conference.


Registration Information

The registration fee is $200 (US) for the Harbin Conference, and includes a banquet, three lunches, coffee breaks, and proceedings of the Harbin Conference. 

The fee is $150 (US) for the Hong Kong Conference, which includes a banquet, two lunches, coffee breaks, and proceedings of the Hong Kong Conference.


Official Language

The official language of the conference for both oral and written presentations is English. Meeting rooms will be equipped with projectors for slides and transparencies, as well as computer projectors.


Keynote Speakers

A number of world-renowned scholars in the area of earthquake engineering will be invited to deliver keynote lectures at the conferences.


Call for Papers

Authors are invited to submit 200-300 word abstracts to the organizing committee (see complete submittal information below) where they prefer to present the paper. However, the final decision as to where a paper is presented will be left to the International Advisory Committee. Authors are strongly encouraged to participate in both conferences. 

Abstracts are due March 31, 2002, and the full-length paper is due at the beginning of the conference. Two separate proceedings and session reports will be published after the conference. Extended abstracts and available full-length papers will be distributed at the conference.


Harbin Conference Topics

The three-day international conference in Harbin will focus on advances and new challenges in earthquake engineering, emphasizing experiences and lessons learned from recent destructive earthquakes, and trends in earthquake engineering. Special features include: the first annual meeting of the Asian-Pacific Network of Centers for Earthquake Engineering Research (ANCER), and a tribute to the 90th anniversary of the birth of the late Professor Liu Huixian, founder of Chinese earthquake engineering and a well-known expert throughout the world.

The Harbin conference welcomes papers on the following main themes:

  • Damage in recent earthquakes
  • EarthStrong ground motion
  • Dynamic properties and response of soil
  • Soil-structure interaction
  • Structural analysis and design
  • Lifeline systems
  • Seismic codes and standards
  • Seismic risk mitigation

Sponsors include the China Seismological Bureau (CSB), Asian-Pacific Network of Centers for Earthquake Engineering Research (ANCER), The Ministry of Science and Technology of China (MOST, China), National Natural Science Foundation of China (NNSF, China), and The Ministry of Construction of China (MOC, China). The organizing committee members are Xiaozhai Qi, chairman; Xing Jin and Jianfa Huang, vice-chairmen; Jie Cui, Zhiqiu Wang and Ming Zhao, secretary general; and Junqi Lin, Xun Guo, Xuelan Zhang and Xingmin Hou, members.
