Greetings, colleagues,

We are happy to announce the Natural Hazards Engineering Research Summit, Oct 6-7, 2022. Please save the date!

WHO: Researchers studying the impact of natural hazards on the built and human environment and interested in national research needs and opportunities are encouraged to attend.

WHAT: This “big tent” event includes sessions and working groups of broad interest to the natural hazards engineering community. Event plans include:

WHERE: Day One will convene at the National Academy of Sciences Building in Washington, DC. Day Two will convene at the Crystal Gateway Marriot Hotel in Arlington, VA, near NSF headquarters.

  • Expert panel by leaders in academia, federal and local government, industry and NGOs to highlight national research needs and future directions.
  • Ted-style talks on topics such as Simulation for Resilient Communities; Data Enabled Discoveries and Sharing; Social Dimensions in Disaster Engineering; NHERI Research-to-Technology, and Enabling Next-Generation Engineers and Scientists.A town-hall style event to shape future direction for Disaster Research Networks.
  • Special focus on early-career development and meetings with Program Directors.
  • Sessions on advances in disaster reconnaissance, data publication, simulations and NHERI facilities.
  • Poster session and networking opportunities on wind, earthquake, tsunami and storm surge engineering, data and simulation, and social dimensions in disasters.

Details and registration information to come. In the meantime, be sure to reserve Oct. 6 and 7 on your 2022 calendar.

We look forward to seeing you!
