NZSEE Annual Technical Conference 2022
27 – 29 April 2022, Wellington
On behalf of the New Zealand Society for Earthquake Engineering (NZSEE) we warmly invite you to join us at the NZSEE Annual Technical Conference to be held online from 27 – 29 April 2022.
This year we have chosen the conference theme of Te Aohurihuri, ngā piki me ngā heke, Designing for Uncertainty: Challenges and Opportunities. There is currently a lot of progress occurring in the industry, with engineers questioning and challenging seismic design philosophies. With this challenge of uncertainty comes great opportunity.
The conference aims to address the need for a more resilient Aotearoa by highlighting the drivers for change, which are resulting in updates to policies, codes, and best practice designs. We seek to bring together a diverse range of thinking and experience, to discuss the uncertainties facing seismic engineering.
The technical programme will include keynote addresses and special sessions on the current and future challenges facing earthquake engineering. There will be sessions on emergency management, research developments in earthquake engineering, advances in the field of geotechnical engineering, social and policy impacts of disasters, and developments in resilience and low-damage design.
Beyond the technical programme, the conference provides a chance for peers to reconnect face-to-face, after a disruptive two years. We are planning on holding the event in person; however, it does appear that the risk of disruption due to COVID-19 does remain. Plans are therefore being put in place for back up dates and, worst-case scenario contingencies.
Please note the key dates for abstract and paper submission. As the conference date draws closer the website will be updated with details of the keynote speakers, programme and other conference activities.
We look forward to welcoming you all to Wellington for an enjoyable conference, as we undertake robust discussions on the future of earthquake engineering.
