To appeal to the broad and diverse groups within the earthquake engineering community, the Conference program will be comprised of a well-rounded mix of sessions from the ten main topics. Authors may submit a full or partial session idea and the Scientific Program subcommittee will work with the submitting author(s) to merge similar ideas within a category to create a session.
Submitting a proposal to the Conference constitutes an agreement that, if the proposal is accepted, the author(s) of the session will register for the Conference (either at full or daily), attend the Conference, and present their work in person.
