A World Conference on Earthquake Engineering is held every four years, under the auspices of the International Association for Earthquake Engineering. The 15th World Conference on Earthquake Engineering in Lisbon is linked to earthquake engineering history since its major earthquake disaster in 1755. The conference is intended to gather researchers, engineers, and specialists who will share the latest results of research and discuss earthquake engineering problems from many perspectives. The topics range from seismology, structural engineering, lifeline systems, seismic risk assessment, to social and economic issues.
This wide range of topics makes this conference valuable for all parties involved in earthquake engineering practice and research. Lisbon is a wonderful city and is very much worth visiting. We look forward to welcoming you.
