Sessions

Tuesday 4/18 Wednesday 4/19 Thursday 4/20 Friday 4/21
The 100th Anniversary Earthquake Conference Technical Sessions include the concurrent sessions of the EERI 8 th US National Conference on Earthquake Engineering, the OES Disaster Resistant California Conference, and the SSA Annual Meeting. The program is organized to retain the individuality of those three meetings, while encouraging exchange of information and ideas among earth scientists, engineers, emergency managers and policy makers. Participants in the conference are invited to attend any and all of the technical sessions, regardless of their conference affiliation (DRC, EERI, SSA, or none).
