About the Event
The ASCE Infrastructure Resilience Division (IRD), in partnership with The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), is pleased to announce the San Fernando Earthquake Conference – 50 years of Lifeline Engineering (Lifelines2021-2022), focusing on “Understanding, Improving & Operationalizing Hazard Resilience for Lifeline Systems.”
The 50th anniversary of the San Fernando Earthquake is an opportunity to reflect on the need to increase the resilience of our critical infrastructure systems to earthquakes and other hazards. The conference will provide a retrospective of where we are today and how we got here, and help define a global vision for where we are going to create resilient infrastructure systems within interdisciplinary and multihazard environments which support community and regional resilience. These encompass the conference goals.
The technical program includes plenary and breakout sessions with 5 plenary sessions covering a variety of timely themes on lifeline infrastructure and community resilience, including topics on the national and international scales, in addition to historical perspectives relating to the 1971 San Fernando Earthquake.
Please find the listing of our plenary speakers on the following website : https://samueli.ucla.edu/lifelines2021-22/#guest-speakers.
The conference is planning to provide over 100 breakout sessions in seven time slots, each time slot will have about 14 to 15 parallel sessions. These breakout sessions will include many terrific presentations which have undergone detailed reviews by a technical committee along with the excellent support of a host of volunteers; the papers meet the upmost standards making the proceedings a high-quality collection covering seven different tracks including Lifeline Infrastructure Systems, the 1971 San Fernando Earthquake, Hazards, Community Resilience, Emerging and Advanced Technologies, Event Investigations and Longitudinal Studies, and Policy and Governance.
These are the in-person participation and an on-line virtual event having limited participation. As a result, this is a hybrid conference holding in-person gatherings at the UCLA campus and partial online access.
