The 2020 National Earthquake Conference (NEC) will take place during the week of March 2 in San Diego and will bring together academia, building code experts, design/build professionals, FEMA directorates, first responders, geologists, local emergency managers, insurance and reinsurance professionals, local and tribal governments, private-sector interests, public information officers, state government leaders, social science practitioners, U.S. State and Territorial Earthquake Managers, USGS leadership, and volunteers.
Attendees will share the latest advances in earthquake science, engineering, policy, and practice to create more resilient buildings and disaster-resilient communities in the face of seismic risk. The results of a new earthquake scenario and risk study for San Diego will be a key highlight of the conference. Developed by experts over the last five years, the scenario will showcase the impacts and consequences of a potential M6.9 earthquake on the Rose Canyon fault that runs through the San Diego harbor, resulting in significant disruption and loss to local communities. Participating experts will share findings from seismological and geologic simulations, engineering inventory and assessment studies, and local stakeholder focus groups.
If you are a member of the media and would like to attend, please contact Sarah Chason (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I agree to abide by the Code of Conduct for the EERI Annual Meeting, National Earthquake Conference, and the National Earthquake Program Managers Meeting (available on www.EarthquakeConference.org)
