U.S./China Symposium Report

A report on the meetings and field trip that took place October 19 to 21, 2010, during the First China/USA Symposium for the Advancement of Earthquake Sciences and Hazard Mitigation Practices is available to download from the "meetings" section. For more information about the symposium, see page 5 of the December 2010 Newsletter.

The meeting summaries cover such issues as siting, building design, building codes, hazard risk reduction, emergency preparation, and long-term recovery after major hazard events, as well as collaboration possibilities and areas for future research of common interest among the many participating organizations. EERI administered a grant from the National Science Foundation that provided travel support for some of the U.S. participants.
