EERI 2018 Annual Undergraduate Student Paper Competition

The Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) is pleased to announce its Annual Undergraduate Student Paper Competition. The purpose of the competition is to promote active involvement of students in earthquake engineering and the earthquake hazards research community.

The general rules of the competition are as follows:

  1. The paper must be directly related to earthquake engineering or earthquake hazard reduction.
  2. The paper or extended abstract must not exceed four (4) pages in length inclusive of all figures, tables, photographs, appendices, and list of references. Exception: final papers from other programs, such as REU's, that are longer than 4 pages will also be accepted.
  3. The paper must be authored by the student alone. In addition, a faculty member or other advisor is required to oversee the preparation of the manuscript. The advisor can provide feedback before submission of the paper but may not co-author the paper. The advisor’s name should be included in the “Acknowledgments” section of the paper.

Applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate program at an accredited U.S. college or university.

The undergraduate paper winners will be invited to the 2019 EERI Annual Meeting, March 5-8 2019, in Vancouver, B.C., Canada, and will receive a complimentary registration and a stipend to help offset travel costs.
