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 JAEE annual meeting to be held on September 19-20, 2019 at Kyoto University will feature some keynote lectures, special plenary sessions and poster presentations of submitted papers, as well as oral presentations accepted for selected papers.

We call for contribution of the papers on earthquake engineering and related fields to be presented in the English Session in addition to the regular sessions.  Young researchers and foreign students are particularly encouraged to join the English session. Excellent Paper Award will be presented to the contributors of high-quality papers who make outstanding presentation. Poster presentation of the contributed paper is requested, while a limited number of papers selected by the organizer will be invited to presentation at an oral session. Note that papers that contain political claims, religious claims, commercial advertising, or slanderous content will be rejected.
