Earthquake Engineering Special Session organized with the framework of Fourteenth International Conference on Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering Computing

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 systems, finite 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:

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).
