English Session in JAEE Annual Meeting

The English Session in JAEE Annual Meeting is aimed at disseminating state-of-the-art earthquake engineering research and providing an opportunity of presentations and discussions in English for Japanese researchers, practitioners, foreign students, etc. This English session succeeds the JAEE international symposium held in 2012-2015.

The English Session will be held as an organized session (poster and oral presentations) in the JAEE Annual Meeting on November 13-14, 2017 at the Institute of Industrial Science, The University of Tokyo. In the annual meeting of this year, in addition to some keynote lectures, the special sessions will be held. Furthermore, poster presentations will be offered for regular papers basically, but oral presentations will be offered for the selected papers.

We call for papers of presentation on earthquake engineering and related fields for the English Session in addition to the regular sessions. Especially young researchers and foreign students are welcome to join because Excellent Paper Award will be presented to young participants who submit a high-quality paper and make an outstanding presentation. Submitted papers will be presented at poster sessions, or a limited number of papers selected by the committee will be presented at an oral session. Papers that contain political claims, religious claims, commercial advertising, or slander of others will be rejected.
