Welcome to the 2nd ATC-SEI Conference on Improving the Seismic Performance of Existing Buildings and Other Structures Website
Hyatt Regency Hotel, San Francisco • December 10-12, 2015
On behalf of the Applied Technology Council (ATC) and the Structural Engineering Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), we would like to invite you to join us in San Francisco on December 10-12, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Following the success of the 2009 conference, this state-of-the-industry forum continues the effort of improving the seismic performance of existing buildings and other structures.
The program is being planned to provide a forum for the presentation and exchange of new information on the seismic evaluation and seismic rehabilitation of existing buildings, including case studies, new discoveries, innovative use of new technologies and materials, implementation issues, needed improvements to existing standards and methods, and socio-economic issues. The goal is to provide an invaluable opportunity to advance the understanding of the tools, techniques, and innovations available to assist the attendees in meeting the challenges of seismic evaluation and rehabilitation.
