The George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) and the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center (PEER) are combining their 2010 Annual Meetings into one joint conference: Quake Summit 2010!  For the first time, researchers from PEER and NEES projects will gather together to discuss future research projects and share their successes from the past year -- with the goal of "shaking research forward."

Quake Summit 2010 will be held on Friday & Saturday, October 8 - 9, 2010.  The meeting will contain both plenary and concurrent technical sessions, as well as a Poster Reception on Friday evening where student researchers will display their research projects.   NEES is also hosting a Media Competition and winners will be announced during Quake Summit 2010.

All professionals, researchers, funding agencies and other colleagues are welcome and encouraged to attend. Registration to Quake Summit 2010 is free and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis so register soon before we reach the maximum room capacity!
