Dealing with the Consequences of Liquefaction

The Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) San Diego Chapter, the University of California San Diego (UCSD) Extension and the GeoInstitute San Diego Chapter are organizing the 2nd Workshop on Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering with the topic “Dealing with the Consequences of Liquefaction” on Wednesday-Thursday, March 29-30, 2017 in UCSD campus, San Diego, California. As you may remember, the first workshop in 2014 was a success with almost 300 attendees (https://sandiego.eeri.org/?p=203).

The second workshop will honor the lifetime achievements and contributions of Prof. Kenji Ishihara to the field of geotechnical earthquake engineering. The afternoon session of the second day of the workshop (Thursday, March 30, 2017) will be entirely devoted to honor Prof. Ishihara and the session will be hosted by Prof. I.M. Idriss. We will have distinguished speakers from US, Japan, New Zealand, Europe and South America sharing with us their experiences with liquefaction mitigation, recent major earthquakes and highlighting the contributions of Prof. Kenji Ishihara. We are in the process on preparing the final program and the website for the workshop. A one-day short course before the workshop on Tuesday, March 28 is also in the plans.

We would much appreciate your participation in this workshop. Please mark your calendars and save the dates.
Hope you will be able to join us and be part of this big event.
If you have any question, feedback or wish to sponsor this event, please feel free to contact the Chair of the Organizing Committee, Dr. Jorge Meneses, at jmenesesl@gmail.com
Thanks and looking forward to seeing all of you in beautiful San Diego,
Jorge Meneses
President, EERI San Diego Chapter
