Registration is open for this retrospective on the M7.1 earthquake last November. This is a diverse gathering of professionals who are vested and interested in helping shape the lessons learned from this event. The symposium is likely to influence future policy recommendations, research priorities, and public education. Subjects range from earthquake science to engineering to emergency response to societal impacts. The first two days are a mix of speakers, focused breakout groups, and panels. The third day is an optional field trip to relevant sites around Anchorage.
This event is sponsored by the U.S. Geological Survey and the National Science Foundation, and organized by the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute and the Alaska Earthquake Center.
