Fifth International Conference on Seismology and Earthquake Engineering (SEE-5)
Technology

The Bam, Balakut and Sumatra earthquakes provided a window of opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of the effective implementation of a comprehensive earthquake risk reduction program in hazard-prone developing countries. SEE-5 will bring together professionals committed to reducing the impact of earthquakes on the built environment.

The Bam, Balakut and Sumatra earthquakes disaster provided a unique window of opportunity to raise international awareness of the importance of the effective implementation of a comprehensive earthquake risk reduction program in hazard-prone developing countries. It gives a challenge to the governments to make the highest use of the existing know-how on earthquakes and its integration into development programs. It also compels the scientific and engineering community to provide more socio-economic-cultural compatible solutions to national needs. Moreover, the public at large should become more concerned about the hazard and increase its own preparedness level.

In this connection and to pursue the objectives and mission of the “Open Alliance of UNESCO-UNDP-UN/ISDR-IIEES, on Earthquake Risk Reduction in Developing Countries”, IIEES is proud to announce its Fifth International Conference on Seismology and Earthquake Engineering (SEE-5) in providing a forum for scientific discussion on the above subjects to be convened in Tehran, Iran from 13-16 May 2007.

Topics to be addressed include Seismotectonic, Seismology, Earthquake Prediction, Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering, Structural Earthquake Engineering, Risk Management, Socio-economic and Public Awareness.

This gathering will bring together professionals from a broad range of disciplines committed to reducing the impact of earthquakes on the built environment. Your participation in the conference will provide an opportunity to exchange ideas on varieties of subjects and in addition you will have the benefit of visiting the most memorizing cultural and earthquake effected sites in Iran.

RELATED EVENT: The “1st International Exhibition of Earthquake Engineering and Construction Industry” will also be held during the conference (13-16th of May 2007) in Tehran.

The International Institute of Earthquake Engineering and Seismology (IIEES) is a comprehensive research and educational institute with the main objective of mitigating the seismic risk both in Iran and the region by promoting research and education in science and technology related to Seismotectonics, Seismology, Earthquake Prediction, Earthquake Engineering and Risk Management. Having organized successfully SEE-1 Conference in 1991 with 193 papers from over 30 countries, SEE-2 in 1995 with 199 papers from 35 countries, SEE-3 in 1999 with 197 papers from 37 countries and SEE-4 in 2003 with 241 papers from 34 countries, IIEES hopes that SEE-5 will bring more scientists together and make the conference a memorable scientific and cultural event.
