SSA 2006

The BSL will co-host the annual meeting of the Seismological Society of America (SSA), scheduled for 4/18/2006 - 4/22/2006, with the USGS. Plans are moving ahead to hold the 100th Anniversary Earthquake Conference as a co-convened meeting by the SSA, the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute, and California Governor's Office of Emergency Services. The joint conference, which will be held in the Moscone convention center in San Francisco, will focus on what has been accomplished during the last century, showcasing best practices and research results in science, engineering, and emergency management.

Lind Gee and Peggy Hellweg are on the Steering Committee for the anniversary conference and has been participating in monthly conference calls to plan for the meeting. In particular, there is much activity related to setting up the program, developing a realistic budget, and planning for special events such as a banquet celebrating the centennial of SSA. The development of the program is particularly exciting, as the conference is a unique gathering of people in earthquake-related fields. A plenary session is planned for each day, with presentations designed to cross disciplinary boundaries.
