JAEE International Symposium on Earthquake Engineering

5 / 21 / 2015 [Topics]

The JAEE International Symposium on Earthquake Engineering is aimed at disseminating state-of-the-art earthquake engineering research in Japan and providing an opportunity of presentations and discussions in English for Japanese researchers, practitioners, foreign students, etc.

This year, the International Symposium will be held as organized sessions in the JAEE Annual Meeting on November 19–20, 2015 at the Institute of Industrial Science, The University of Tokyo. The session will feature poster presentations, a limited number of oral presentations, and the US–Japan panel discussion on base isolation and seismic response control systems.

We call for papers of presentation on earthquake engineering and related fields. 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. Oral presenters will be nominated based on the quality and content of the paper. Papers that contain political claims, religious claims, commercial advertising, or slander of others will be rejected.
