EMME session in the upcoming ECEES meeting in Istanbul Turkey on August 24-29 2014

From: Karin Sesetyan <ksesetyan@gmail.com>

Dear colleagues,

Although a last minute notice, we would like to draw your attention to the ECEE Special Session no 5 "EMME (Earthquake Model of Middle East: from Seismic Hazard to Seismic Risk) at the Second European Conference on Earthquake Engineering and Seismology, a joint event of the 15th European Conference on Earthquake Engineering and the 34th General Assembly of the European Seismological Commission. The conference will be held in Istanbul, Turkey on 24- 29 August 2014 (http://www.2eceesistanbul.org/).
We cordially invite the work package leaders as well as all the partners/contributors to present the work carried out in our four years project. Researchers conducting related studies in the region are also most welcome.
The session abstract is given below. Both oral and poster presentations are welcome.
The deadline for abstract submission is the 1st of April 2014. However we hope that a few days extension will be possible for our session.
Please feel free to circulate this information to colleagues you think might be interested.
We look forward to seeing you in Istanbul!
With our best wishes

Session conveners
Domenico Giardini,
Mustafa Erdik,
Karin Sesetyan,
Laurentiu Danciu,

EMME (Earthquake Model of Middle East: From Seismic Hazard to Seismic Risk)
The Middle East and Caucasus regions are located at the junction of major tectonic plates, namely the African, Arabian and Eurasian plates resulting in very high seismic activity, where some of the major earthquake disasters in the human history (856 Damghan, 893 Ardabil, 1138 Aleppo, 1667 Shamaki, 1727 Tabriz, 1939 Erzincan, 1988 Spitak, 1990 Manjil, 1999 Kocaeli, 2003 Bam and 2005 Kashmir) took place. The same region today is one of the fastest growing sections of the world in terms of urbanization, economy, industrialization and power generation. The region under consideration involves world’s most populated capitals and cities with key economic importance. This ever increasing exposure coupled with a rather fragile inventory of buildings and a high seismic hazard necessitates a comprehensive and concerted effort for the management of the ensuing seismic risk.
EMME (Earthquake Model of the Middle East Region) Project aimed the assessment of earthquake hazard and the associated risk in terms of building damages, casualties and economic losses that would lead to the development and eventual application of the risk mitigation measures in the Middle East - Caucasus Region. Incorporation of the local expertize in terms of seismotectonic knowledge as well as characterization of the built environment exposed to seismic risk was one of the key components of the project that involved participation of local experts from more than ten countries in the region.
This session aims to bring together a wide range of scientists and practitioners to present the results obtained in the different work packages of the project as well as to create possibility of future collaborations with scientists working on the seismic hazard and risk in the region. As such contributions from the partners of the EMME project as well as from all regional experts working on similar subjects in the region and studies that would elucidate end-user needs and perspectives are encouraged
