Visit http://earthquakeconference.org for information about the program.With the theme of “Learning from the Past to Protect the Future,” the joint National Earthquake Conference and Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) Annual Conference program commemorated the 200th anniversary of the historic series of strong earthquakes that struck the New Madrid seismic zone in late 1811 and early 1812. It featured many lessons from recent and historic earthquakes that are applicable to the practice of U.S. professionals. The meeting was jointly hosted by EERI, WSSPC, CUSEC, NESEC, and CREW, and consisted of both plenary and concurrent sessions to ensure an abundance of offerings for engineers, scientists, emergency managers, and policy makers.
