Invitation letter

Dear Colleagues

The Organizing Committee of the “International Conference in Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics (ICEESD 2017) in Iceland, June 2017” is very pleased to invite you to attend this event. It is organized by the Earthquake Engineering Research Centre (EERC) of the University of Iceland in honor of its former director, late Professor Ragnar Sigbjörnsson.

The conference will be held June 12-14th 2017 at the University of Iceland in Reykjavík the capital of Iceland which is famous for its clean air and utilization of renewable energy. Iceland is also famous for effective preparedness against natural disasters, e. g. serious accidents which are rare in spite of frequent earthquakes, hazardous weather and volcanic activity.

June is a lovely month in Iceland with around the clock daylight and the volcanic landscape is never more beautiful. The Teachers College at Stakkahlíð which is the venue for the conference offers modern facilities and the Organizing Committee is working to provide a conference that will give a unique opportunity for exchange of knowledge and discussion of experiences in earthquake engineering and structural dynamics.

Eleven distinguished scientists will as keynote speakers provide insight in the latest research. Submitted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and presented orally or in posters.  An attractive social program is planned that includes a welcome party and a conference banquet.

We would appreciate if you would tell you colleagues about the conference and hang the flier, that is sent here as an attachment. on a bulletin board in your institution.

 

Best regards

Organizing committee, ICESD2017
