The 2012 PEER Annual Meeting is being hosted at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza in Berkeley from Friday October 26 – Saturday October 27, 2012. Practicing professionals, faculty, students and others interested in earthquake engineering are encouraged to attend.
The meeting will open on the morning of Friday October 26th with a overview of recent and ongoing PEER research programs by Director Stephen Mahin. Friday’s concurrent sessions will cover high performance structures, transportation structures, simulation/analysis, dams/levees, as well as a two-session track for practitioners that intended to serve as a researcher and practitioner idea exchange. The day will conclude with an evening reception where a variety of graduate student researchers working on PEER funded projects, as well as the 2012 PEER undergraduate summer interns, will use posters to informally present their research progress and results. On Saturday the meeting will continue with working meetings for several PEER research programs and will conclude at lunch time.
