Special Session related to Information & Communication Technologies in Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics

A mini-symposium is organised in the framework of the 3rd International Conference on Computational Methods in Structural Dynamics & Earthquake Engineering (COMPDYN2011).

Focus and purpose: The mini-symposium focuses on recent advances in Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) and their applications in Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics. More specifically, it is foreseen to invite papers that will demonstrate new software applications, web-based engineering tools, decision-making systems, collaborative on-site and remote research, frameworks for hybrid simulation (coupled experimental and numerical modules), open source applications, data and metadata dissemination and archiving, applications for mobile devices and remote computing as well as topic-specific GIS applications, that are developed and implemented in order to enhance the reliability of our prediction of structural response and the mitigation of the effects of earthquakes on structures. Emphasis will also be given to case studies and applications already publically available and/or applied in practice.

Abstracts: May be submitted electronically through the Conference Website

Important dates:
– Deadline for submission of abstracts: 15 October 2010
– Notification of abstract acceptance: 31 December 2010
– Deadline for early registration: 21 February 2011
- Conference: 26-28 May 2011

Location: Corfu, Greece

Organizer: Anastasios Sextos (Aristotle University Thessaloniki, Greece)
