Application to "Greet the Masters" Now Open!!

IAEE, in coordination with 17WCEE, will initiate a new program titled the Masters’ Series. Masters, legendary figures in the world of earthquake engineering, will be invited to contribute to three events, Read the Masters, Meet the Masters, and Greet the Masters (Click here for details).

Greet the Masters is a series of invitation-based, small-group receptions targeting young researchers to greet a Master in person. A luncheon or tea-time reception will be held to hear from the Master about his/her visions and tips in research and professional career development through frank and friendly exchange. The lunch and tea-time receptions are free of charge.


The Masters at the 17WCEE are:
