Call for abstracts

Prospective authors are invited to submit abstracts in a broad range of topics in the field of earthquake geotechnical engineering and soil dynamics. Abstract submissions are limited to one abstract per lead/submitting author. Intending authors are invited to submit an abstract in English of 200 to 300 words, with a title, author's names, affiliations and the main author's mailing address (fax and e-mail).

Submit your abstract
