Structural Engineering and Resilience
July 1, 2018 to July 1, 2018
abstract due date
Rydges Lakeland Resort
Queenstown New Zealand
The 17th U.S.-Japan-New Zealand Workshop on the Improvement of Structural Engineering and Resilience (ATC-15-16) will be held on November 12-14, 2018, at the Rydges Lakeland Resort in Queenstown, New Zealand.
Sponsored by the Applied Technology Council (ATC), the Japan Structural Consultants Association (JSCA), the New Zealand Centre of Research Excellence (QuakeCoRE), and the New Zealand Society for Earthquake Engineering (NZSEE), this Workshop is intended to discuss and develop policy recommendations for improved community resilience based on topics related to current state-of-practice, innovative engineering solutions, and emerging resilience technologies.
Program. The Workshop program will be based on topics presented by practicing engineers, researchers, planners, policy makers, and other risk reduction specialists. The format will include technical presentations, panel discussions, and policy-development discussions. Potential session topics are • Resilience- and performance-based engineering: progress and developments; • Innovative structural design for large or multiple earthquake events; • Risk identification and reduction; • Consideration of tsunami loads after earthquake / design for vertical evacuation; • Earthquake response, recovery, and reconstruction; • Residual capacity and repair of earthquake damage; • Nonstructural; • Lessons learned from recent and past events and improvement of post-earthquake evaluation procedures
Abstract Submittal. Persons interested in presenting a paper should submit an abstract of 250 words or less to the Applied Technology Council (ATC) by June 1, 2018. Authors will be notified of acceptance by July 1, 2018. Technical papers, up to 8 pages in length, are due to ATC by September 17, 2018 for publication in the Workshop Proceedings. The official language of the Workshop is English. Abstracts should be submitted to the Applied Technology Council via e-mail or FAX (650-593-2320).
