EERI Proposes to Host 16WCEE

EERI recently submitted a first-rate bid to host the 16th World Conference on Earthquake Engineering in San Francisco in 2016.  Previously EERI hosted the 1st WCEE in Berkeley in 1956 and the 8th in San Francisco in 1984. The 16WCEE proposal is built around the theme of A New Paradigm: Earthquake Engineering for the Resilient Community and features San Francisco as a living classroom of seismic mitigation.  The proposed program includes many cutting-edge elements for sharing and learning within a traditional conference format.  Check it out, share with colleagues, spread the word, and help EERI win the bid!
