12NCEE: The Call for Papers is Open!

12ncee logo for pulseEERI is excited to announce the Call for Papers for the Twelfth National Conference on Earthquake Engineering! The conference website is now live at: 12ncee.org.

This milestone conference, hosted by EERI from June 27-July 1, 2022 in downtown Salt Lake City, will bring together professionals from a broad range of earthquake-relevant disciplines and reunite the community for our first in-person gathering since 2020. The 2022 EERI Annual Meeting and EERI’s Annual Undergraduate Seismic Design Competition will take place concurrently. 

12NCEE will provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to share the latest knowledge and techniques to better understand and mitigate the damaging effects of earthquakes and tsunamis. Professionals from the full spectrum of the earthquake community will gather to discuss and debate new research, advancements in practice, and a multitude of new and ongoing issues related to seismic hazard, risk, mitigation, and public policy that have emerged in the last four years. Timely and relevant lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic are also expected.

Learn more about the conference here and read the Call for Papers here. Please note that there will be no preliminary abstract submission and review—the first and only submission will be a 4-page paper manuscript, due November 5, 2021. We also welcome proposals for special sessions, which are due October 1, 2021. All papers should be submitted via the portal on the website. A limited number of registration grants will be available for students, early-career academics, and early-career professionals. We are excited to see you in Salt Lake City next year!
