Tehran, Iran – May 18-21 2015
On behalf of the Iranian Ministry of Science, Research and Technology (MSRT) and the International Institute of Earthquake Engineering and Seismology (IIEES), it is our great pleasure to invite you to the "7th International Conference of Seismology and Earthquake Engineering (SEE7)" to be held in Tehran, Iran during the third week of May 2015.
During the last decade, the world has experienced many destructive earthquakes in Haiti, Iran, Indonesia, Japan, Pakistan, and Turkey which have affected human lives and properties. One of the most outstanding points in recent events was the damages imposed by earthquakes to urban fabrics. Therefore, the main theme of this conference is selected as "Urban Earthquake Risk Management", in order to highlight the necessity for further researchers in these areas.
Engineers, geologists, seismologists, disaster management practitioners and academics, public and private contractors, researchers and scientists of succeeding younger generations, and all those involved with areas related to seismology, earthquake engineering and disaster risk management are welcome to attend the conference and share their recent experiences and knowledge. We look forward to welcoming you in Tehran, Iran in May 2015. We hope this conference promises unforgettable experiences and makes one of the most successful and memorable events for you.
About The Conference
International Conferences on Seismology and Earthquake Engineering (SEE), as one of the most important scientific event in relevant fields, provide an opportunity for researchers, practitioners and students to share the latest knowledge and techniques for understanding and mitigating the effects of earthquakes.
Up to now, International Institute of earthquake Engineering and Seismology (IIEES) has organized 6 SEE conferences successfully. However, since the last SEE conference in 2011 (SEE6), the world has experienced several destructive earthquakes which claimed thousands of lives and caused great damage and losses. These earthquakes and the diversity of the related fields caused more challenges and initiate more applied and scientific research with the necessity of presenting new solutions and introducing innovative methods for decreasing such risks. In this regard, the Seventh Conference of Seismology and Earthquake Engineering (SEE7) aims to provide a unique environment to develop synergy between participants from around the world. This conference brings together professionals from a broad range of disciplines to discuss, share and exchange their latest achievements and state of the art. Furthermore, several workshops and special sessions will be organized along with the conference; therefore the participants may benefits from their interested subjects in seismology, earthquake engineering and disaster risk management in more details.
Seismology and Earthquake Engineering (SEE) Conference is known as one of the most important scientific events in the relevant fields with more than two decades of experiences. The first conference (SEE1) has been organized successfully in 1991 after destructive Manjil, Iran Earthquake of 1990. In that event 193 papers from over 30 countries have been presented. Thereafter, International Institute of Seismology and Earthquake Engineering (IIEES) has organized SEE conferences in each four year; SEE2 in 1995 with 199 papers from 35 countries, SEE3 in 1999 with 197 papers from 37 countries, SEE4 in 2003 with 241 papers from 34 countries, SEE5 in 2007 with 550 papers from 45 countries and SEE6 in 2011 with 580 papers from 30 countries. We hope that SEE7 will bring more scientists together and make the conference a memorable scientific and professional event.
