About the Symposium:
The 5th International Symposium on the Effects of Surface Geology on Seismic Motion (ESG5) will be hold on August 2016 and take place in Taipei, Taiwan. The symposium will discuss the site effect related topics especially focus on main theme which is “Challenges of Applying Ground Motion Simulation to Seismology and Earthquake Engineering”. The symposium is jointly host by National Center for Research on Earthquake Engineering, Taiwan (NCREE) and National Taiwan University, Taiwan (NTU).
In the past few decades, the site effects of seismic ground motions induced by surface geology and structure were getting emphatic in seismology and earthquake engineering. Possible disasters for cities located on alluvium basin or plain induced from site amplification during earthquake should be taken seriously consideration. First priority problem related to symposium theme is to simulate high frequency motions. However, shallow velocity structures were still unclear for many regions in the world that it still need more exploration such as microtremer or borehole experiences.
The symposium is organized from ESG working group under IASPEI (International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior) and IAEE (International Association of Earthquake Engineering) since 1980’s. These two committees had focus on research of development of strong ground motion during former four symposiums. First one was in 1992 held in Odawara, Japan with main topic of blind prediction experiments at Ashigara Valley. Second one was in 1998 took place in Yokohama, Japan which was focus on simulation of Kobe earthquake. Third one was in 2006 held in Grenoble, France concentrated on noise blind test of simulation in Grenoble basin. The fourth symposium was 2011 in Santa Barbara, America and had special discussions of the suitability of Vs30 during the time.
Main theme: Challenges of Applying Ground Motion Simulation to Earthquake Engineering
The symposium will focus on several topics as follows:
Early Bird NTD 9,600 (~USD 300) NTD 4,800 (~USD 150)
Standard NTD 12,800 (~USD 400) NTD 6,400 (~USD 200)
* USD is approximately 32 NTD
** Early bird: before June 1, 2016
The full registration fee includes:
Service of student registration fees is totally the same with the full registration. A valid student ID is required at the time of registration.
The full paper submission of an accepted abstract requires payment of the registration fee of at least one author, i.e. not later than Jun. 1st, 2016. A registered participant may be a co-author in several papers, but each participant may present up to two papers at the conference.
The online registration will be open later.
