An "Earthquake Engineering" Special Session is organized within the framework of Fourteenth International Conference on Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering Computing, to be held in Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy between 3-6 September 2013. It is organized by Anastasios Sextos, Assistant Professor at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
The Special Session focuses on recent advances in Computational Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics. More specifically, it will encourage contributions related to the mitigation of seismic risk, the design and assessment of
earthquake resistant buildings and bridges, the assessment of
special and monumental structures, system identification and structural health
monitoring, performance-based engineering, seismic
isolation and control of structures, dynamic soil-structure
interaction, strong ground motion selection and scaling as well as
seismic wave propagation through the soil media. Papers related to new
software applications, web-based engineering tools, frameworks for
hybrid simulation and distributed computing, knowledge-based & expert
element programs, numerical analysis pre- and post- processing
front-ends, data and metadata dissemination and management
systems, high performance, parallel and cloud computing schemes,
applications for mobile devices and tablets as well as GIS-based
visualization tools are also welcome.
It is envisioned that the Special Session will constitute an interesting forum for scientists using state-of-the-art computational methods and tools for Earthquake Engineering purposes.
Please note that the call for papers closes on the 5th December 2012 and abstracts may be submitted via the conference website: http://www.civil-comp.com/conf/
To encourage young researchers to attend the conference a 1000 Euro Young Researcher Best Paper Prize will be awarded to the best paper presented at each of the conferences. (For further details please see the conference website).
