Call for Annual Meeting/NEC Poster Abstracts
Individuals interested in participating in one of the 2012 Annual Meeting/National Earthquake Conference poster sessions are invited to submit abstracts to the organizing committee.
Formatting: The accepted abstracts, not exceeding two pages in length, will be reproduced as submitted in the Annual Meeting notebook and therefore must be in final form. Abstracts should be prepared with one-inch margins on all sides, single-spaced in 11-point Times Roman or equivalent font. Text should be flush left. The title, in upper case, should be centered at the top, with presenters identified by name, title, and organizational affiliation.
They should be e-mailed by January 23, 2012, to Juliane Lane at email@example.com. Presenters will be notified in late February of acceptance.
Wednesday (April 11) poster session, 6:00-7:30 p.m.: This session will be held in the vicinity of the Undergraduate Seismic Design Competition and will emphasize student posters – those in the competition, those done by graduate student researchers, and others covering EERI student chapter activities.
Thursday (April 12) poster session, 6:00-7:30 p.m.: Abstracts are particularly encouraged that address one of the above-mentioned topics being emphasized during the program. Academic posters are encouraged that target advanced research nearing completion focusing on technology transfer to practitioners. Practitioner posters are encouraged that target innovative applications of research in practice or identified code-based needs for research.
Several scholarships are available to assist student members and younger EERI members (out of school no more than three years) to attend the meeting, thanks to support from FEMA. Financial support will be contingent upon participation in one of the poster sessions (see above), either through the applicant’s own research project, or as a representative of a student chapter depicting the chapter’s activities. To apply, e-mail a letter of request by January 23, 2012, to the Student Activities Committee in care of Juliane Lane at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants should describe their current involvement in earthquake engineering or a related field and their status as students or professionals.
